The former president’s public relations office  and State House officials also confirmed that Banda will be in Botswana and she formally notified President Peter Mutharika on her observer mission.

Mutharika, said State House  press team,  gave an “Ok” to the letter she received from Banda on the Africa Union assignment.

Banda is expected to arrive in Botswana this week.

AU mission would issue various statements regarding their observation in the run up to the elections day, including a pre-election statement on findings of Long-Term Observers (LTOs), a preliminary statement that would include LTO findings and Election Day observations and a comprehensive final report that would include recommendations.

The pre-election and preliminary statements will be issued by the mission leader.

The final report would be issued by the chairperson of the AU Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

AU expects Botswana to live up to its history and hold free, fair and credible elections.

Botswana held its first multiparty elections in 1965 ahead of the declaration of independence.

  9. Lebose says:

    You cant be ignored mama Africa, you are larger than Malawi thats why malawi couldnt handle you, leave Malawi with its mediocrity leaders, you are too good for Malawi

  10. Mtaya says:

    JB is well recognised worldwide hence the assignment to Botwana.The azungu also know her as a person with intelligent.

  11. Mau says:

    Pitani Amayi!

  12. wankulumadzi says:

    what i see the comments is that most of us think negative of our own people. Remember that JB is putting malawi on the map. Our problem is recognitis (english from Dausi’s Dictionary meaning your sense of recognition is inflamed). You wait for the mzungu to recognise what is good for u.

  13. concerned Citizen says:

    slowly and smartly she is being taught how to be humble, even though she’s is a slow learner.

  14. mai nsato says:

    What is she going to observe there??? Is she to rig for govt or who? Is she going to advise the looser not to attend the swearing-in sermon or handover of power to hide in the Kalahari desert? very shame! shame! shame as Mugabe described USA and Britain at the UN.

    This is JB. Booooma iloooooooooooooooooooo!.

  17. Think Tank says:

    Why cant we just comment without refering to Bingu or Peter. Tiny brains have forgotten that Bingu became president courtesy Bakili Muluzi. On his own he was a flop in 1999. By extension,Peter is there because of the foundations Bakili laid by choosing Bingu. If JB was chosen by Bingu,then fine. He also benefited by doing that. You cannot quantify how many people voted for him as Bingu and those who voted for him because of JB. Same with Peter and Chilima. We can say Peter is now the president because of Chilima and vice versa. Those who voted him in bcoz of Chilima made the diferrence between the candidates! Although we know how dpp treat vice-presidents.

    JB is proving that she is a leader!!

    The most productive ex Malawian president ever produced.

  24. opportunist says:

    All the best mama

    1. Malawians, lets be honest enough. This woman is more than a witch i tell you!!! she doesnt have any quality in all aspects of a leader. She can not theefore be a good adviser in any elecion set up. She will advise the army to disrupt the tarry centre and use very ellevant sections of the sections with the slip of the toungue to cancell the eections. She is the worst President Malawi as ever had. A form four drop out of NABW initiative. Let her answer to her involvement in the famous Cashgate Scandle. Awoman who can cererate some body’s death , she is really a shit. APM pls do not give her an inch so nearer to you. She will kill you. Dont by in what she says about the forgotten items. She want to charm you pls.

  25. Ine says:

    So this will delay her arrest for a few more weeks. Shame

  43. Patrick Jailos says:

    Good move

  44. Not well articulated article,you supposed to tell us in details if she has offered her services or been assigned to
    Honestly I am feeling sorry for our former President she’s has been working overtime recently she needs a rest!

  45. nkunthamasese says:

    Indeed JB is a model woman which Malawi should be proud of. Amai mikutichotsa manyazi. U are indeed a great woman. No wonder women like PK envy you. Keep it up Amai.

    I love Joice Banda very much.she is a true Malawian she loves malawi. A lot

    koma jb yaaaaa i don’t know

  48. YAKASHATA says:

    Useless, she does not deserve that she is a bad person who was happy with Bingu’s death, I will never forget that.

  49. Mbanangwa says:

    Malawians who hate JB will be very vocal and derogatory as to why amaNyaBanda has been picked for the mission. Arthur Peter is calm and he has given an okay but you will hear some comments from rotten mouths.
