Former President Dr. Joyce Banda has been left out on this year’s list of 100 most powerful women list compiled by an International Magazine called Forbes Magazine.
Banda first appeared in the Magazine in 2012 as most influential woman on the World and most powerful on the African continent.
It was the same year when she ascended to the Presidency office just after the death of President Professor Bingu wa Mutharika.
Banda’s missing on the list has been attributed to her relinquishing of power.
Although this is the case to Banda, Germany Chancellor Angel Merkel was for the fifth time named the most powerful woman in the world while US Democrat presidential hopeful and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton has risen to second position.
The other shocking news on the list is that no African woman is on the top 10.
Forbes list is a definitive annual audit of the foremost heads of state, iconic entrepreneurs and CEOs, celebrity role models, billionaire activists, and pioneer philanthropists, all ranked by money, media momentum, spheres of influence and impact.
