Banda: Fundraises for her charity, she declares

Banda trailed third in the May 20 tripartite elections that saw Peter Mutharika ascend to the presidency. Since she left office, she has been travelling all over the world on invitations by various international organisations giving lectures and fundraising for her charity, Joyce Banda Foundation International (JBFI).

She became president in accordance to constitutional order following the sudden death of Pres Bingu wa Mutharika of cardiac arrest in April 2012.

“I have an installment payment arrangement with the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) to pay duty on the said vehicles after which, title shall be transferred to the party,” she declares in her assets documents.

The declaration, made on December 30, 2014, also shows a list of houses under Banda’s ownership plus a K30, 000, 000 one at Chintheche in Nkhata Bay district – her husband Richard Banda’s home.

As at December 30, 2014, Banda had US$14 444.35 with the Bank of America, ZAR 244 644.00 in South Africa and MK2 008 002.00 with the National Bank of Malawi.

Her husband and her got loans of K100 000 000.00 each from National Bank, she further declares. She has a balance of 87 000 000.00 while her husband Richard is yet to pay back K79 000 000.00.

The former president also declares that she fundraises a great deal, locally and internationally, for JBFI.

“I and Joyce Banda Foundation International received donations in both cash and materials from friends, well-wishers and international organizations for me and Joyce Banda Foundation…” reads part of her declaration.

    Zabodza zokhazokha izi. But by the way is MRA biased? you make arrangements for other people to pay installments while the poor should pay in full? Chinyengi chenicheni.

    Thank you Mama. Whatever you have is deserved. You have worked hard for it. There is no way somebody can question you source of income. Its your legal right to make money.

  16. GOGO says:

    JB became an international beggar why?

  17. True patriot says:

    Thank you aunt Joy.Now its your turn grandpa APM.

  18. Kafyala says:

    please re-read and take away politics of hatred. What is reported here has been cloned from her declarations. I echo my thanks for her fight to have this part of law enacted: barering assets to the public. My question is, what happens at the end of it all when people leave office?

  19. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    It’s only JB who has declared the party’s vehicles and some have duty paid in full while UDF and DPP are using duty free vehicles , why ?

  20. Why VPs assets surpass that of former interim president?33 cars unpaid for arrangement payement made with MRA,is it abused power or else sick and derelict MRA?ACB,FIU and Attorney General money laundering job here.Osamangophwekera ma small fish.

  21. geo stream says:

    So how much is JBs wealth? You are trying to cover her while uncovering APM. Shame

  22. frodger says:

    Kunama anthuwa but we thank her for championing that this law be passed

    1. Afana APM says:

      And for that reason whether akunama or akunena zoona, tatiyeni timupatse ulemu for championing assets declaration and money laundering laws which gave our previous leaders especially Bingu and Bakili, a licence to steal.
