Malawi’s First Female Former President Joyce Banda, who is leader for the opposition Peoples Party (PP) on Wednesday, asked Malawians to forget ‘Cash-gate’ scandal and vote for her in the forth coming 2019 presidential elections.
Banda, who is in self imposed exile told Voice of America (VOA) journalist that said she is ready to lead Malawi again.
“At the end of the day, if you are talking about my political life, it is Malawians who will decide. If Malawians are saying I should continue; they want me to stand again, I shall go back home and answer that call,” said Joyce Banda.
“Cashgate” is a financial scandal involving looting, theft and corruption that happened at Capital Hill the seat of Government of Malawi. This happened under the leadership of President Joyce Banda.
The scandal started when an Accounts Assistant in the Ministry of Environment, Victor Sithole, was found with huge amounts of money not in consistence with his monthly income.
This was later compounded with the shooting of the Budget Director in the Ministry of Finance, Paul Mphwiyo.
