AU honor for Joyce Banda visibly ignored by Malawi Government

Recipients of the AU Diaspora Africa Forum women’s awards, leaders and continental legends have dedicated their awards to women across Africa. Graca Machel, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and former Malawi President Joyce Banda, were among those honoured. 
While in Mozambique and other home countries of the recipients government mentioned and shared the honor with its citizens, it is noticeable that Malawi Government spokespersons and Ministry of Information did not mention anything about this in any press briefings.

The feud between Peter Mutharika and Joyce Banda is at the core of this lack of support for Joyce Banda. It marred an occasion that should have been celebrated by all Malawians. Former President Joyce Banda and current President Peter Mutharika should start acting as adults and bury the hatchet.    AU honor for Joyce Banda visibly ignored by Malawi Government: AU honor for Joyce Banda visibly ignored by Malawi Government
