Malawi’s ex-president Banda returns after four-year exile: AFP

Blantyre (Malawi) (AFP) – Malawi’s former president, Joyce Banda, returned home on Saturday after four years of self-imposed exile, despite facing the threat of arrest over corruption allegations, an AFP journalist witnessed.

Banda — only the second woman to lead a country in Africa — arrived at Blantyre’s airport on a flight from Johannesburg around midday, where she was greeted by hundreds of supporters of her People’s Party.
