As Malawians continue questioning one another the whereabouts of former President Dr. Joyce Banda, information sourced by FaceofMalawi indicates that Banda is currently in South Africa.
Banda left the country for United States of America barely months after being booted out of the high office by the then opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led by President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika in the controversial May 20 tripartite elections which was marred by various irregularities.
Banda’s stay in USA raised many speculations among various stakeholders in the country, accusing her of running away from the much touted looting of Public Funds at Capitol Hill dubbed Cashgate which happened during her rain.
The speculations proved right late last year when principal suspect in Cashgate scandal, Oswald Lutepo told the Privately owned station Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) his company was just used to siphon public money but the main beneficially of the Cashgate was Banda.
Reacting to the news, Banda through her People’s Party Spokesperson Ken Msonda blasted the claims and accused DPP of conniving with Lutepo to implicate Banda in the scam.
The development sparked cold war between two Parties as DPP distanced itself from the claims and questioned Banda as to why she is hiding in foreign country.
Meanwhile it is not yet known as to when Banda will return to Malawi.
