Malawi ex-president, Joyce Banda, wanted by police over $250m corruption case

A Malawian court has granted the police a warrant of arrest in respect of the country’s former president, Joyce Banda.

According to a police statement tweeted by a journalist in the country, the order is in respect of a corruption scandal that took place during her tenure as president.

“The Malawi police wishes to inform Malawians that its Fiscal and Fraud Section conducted some investigations on the suspected involvement of the Former President in ‘cashgate’ cases and unearthed credible evidence.

“The evidence gathered raises reasonable suspicion that the Former President committed offences relating to abuse of office and money laundering,” the statement added.

The case in question, the ‘cashgate’ saga, is on record as the country’s biggest financial scandal. It is said to have involved loss of about $250 million.

Malawi police are said to have asked for INTERPOL’s assistance in arresting Mrs Banda who is currently out of the country. She has yet to comment on the arrest warrant.

The 67-year-old served as the country’s president between April 2012 to May 2014. She is founder and leader of the People’s Party which was established in 2011. She had previously served as vice-president to late president Bingu wa Mutharika.

She took over power after her boss died in office but she heavily lost 2014 elections to incumbent Peter Mutharika.

German defence minister visits Mali

German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen called for calm on Sunday during her visit to Gao, Mali as investigations unfold on a German helicopter accident.

The two crew members died after the German Military helicopter assigned to the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali crashed on Wednesday.

The flight boxes were recovered and will be taken to Germany for data recovery work to begin.

“The investigation has to be carried out systematically and it would be wrong to exert pressure on the experts and with respect to the pilots and the security of the personnel. We know from other incidents involving helicopters that especially with a close cooperation with the experts the right moment can be found to slowly and safely resume flight operation,” German Defence minister, Ursula Von Der Leyen said.

Von der Leyen refuted claims the crash was a result of the pilot’s inexperience.

She described the Mali peacekeeping mission as one of the most important but also the most dangerous deployments of the United Nations.

Some 800 German soldiers are stationed in Mali.
