I’ll fights graft with or without donors – Banda

03 February 2014, 18:49

Cape Town – Malawian President Joyce Banda has reiterated that she is ready to fight against corruption “with or without donors” as her country faces the biggest financial scandal in its history.

According to an Al Jazeera report, Banda said if she was to be forced out of office as a result of the corruption case, she would walk away “a happy person” as “I would have made the first move" to fight against it.

The British government froze aid payments to Malawi in November in response to the multi-million pound corruption which involved dozens of officials.

The European Union and Norway also withdrew their support.

The report, however, said the international donors were expected to decide early next month whether to resume funding for Malawi.

The announcement was set to come after the government released its report on the corruption scandal.

Banda has in the past been quoted as saying she would not cry over the freezing of aid, although she understood the need for British politicians and taxpayers to have confidence in her government.
