0

The United States of America has said that it cannot call back Joyce Banda from America because that is the task of the Malawian government.

Speaking on the matter USA’s ambassador to Malawi, Virginia Palmer said that Joyce Banda has not over stayed her welcome in America.

“Malawi is a sovereign country and for that we respect its decisions. We cannot deport Joyce Banda at the moment because Malawi did not write us to do so,” she said.

She added that the Malawian government also assured USA that Joyce Banda would not face any problems when she comes back to Malawi.

Recently, Peoples Party (PP) said was going to hold hold a convention despite the prolonged absence of the party’s founder and leader, Joyce Banda who went into self exile in May, 2014.

PP acting President, Uladi Mussa said that the party was in the dark on the return of its leader.

“We do not know when president, Joyce Banda will return to Malawi because she is not communicating to us anything concerning the matter,” he said.

Mussa added that the party would elect a new Nation Executive Committee this year.

“Whether Joyce Banda will be here or not our plans will not be affected because as per our constitution we are supposed to conduct a convention this year.

“Nothing will stop us from conducting this convention and after this year, PP will have a new elected president,” he said.

He added that PP could wait for JB to return because the party did not belong to JB only.

“It is a a party of the people and we need a president who can be in Malawi to make the party stronger,” he said.

President Joyce Banda went into exile after the 2014 elections and up to now nobody including her closest allies knows if she will ever return to Malawi or not.
