There is authority in the constitution and it is because of this constitution that Malawi’s Joyce Banda was able to take the reins of power in Malawi making her the first woman in Southern Africa to head a nation. This has sent shock waves to the ruling corridors of the former Malawi Presidents friend in Harare where there remains no new constitution in the embattled southern African nation of Zimbabwe. If Mugabe had died it would throw the country into chaos because there is evidence of similar power struggles in the ZANU-PF party and no known succession plan.
Brief facts About President Joyce Banda
Joyce may be Africa’s answer to empower women she established businesses to support her nonprofits something which is quite different from the current nonprofit model of always begging donors for money. This seems a better business model than the one employed by former president and World Bank economist /Economist in Chief Mutharika who despite his prestigious education lacked the grassroots experience to tackle the real world problems of poverty that plagued his nation.
