Former Malawi President Joyce Banda has not given up on her political career, and will contest for presidency in next year’s elections or she will team up with Bushiri with his DEPECO and Malawi Congress Party’s Lazarus Coalition in a grand coalition..
She has made the revelation through her Spokesperson Andekuche Chanthunya, a brother to murder fugitive Misozi Chanthunya..
Her office however fails to disclose the exact date the former Malawi leader is returning home.
Banda left the country soon after the 2014 elections, which she lost to Democratic Progressive Party’s Peter Mutharika.
As next year’s elections are drawing closer, political parties are stepping up efforts in their preparations, and questions are being asked on the future of Banda with her Peoples Party.
Chamthunya tells Capital FM’s Rhodes Msonkho that Banda will be among those contesting at the party’s convention, to be its torch bearer
