Heading towards the 2014 election. A look at Malawi.

Uploaded from the show dated March 13, 2013. Sorry for the late upload!

After a brief rant on the new Pope, Amandla’s Doug Miller, returning from Malawi, and Gwen Schulman have a wide ranging discussion about the situation in the country, as the new president arrives near the end of her first year in power. The power-hungry people around her and the tradition of self-enrichment that has been installed among the political elite has eroded the goodwill that was available to her after the disastrous final years of the Mutharika regime. The country is holding its breath as it anxiously and apprehensively watches how political forces will line up for the election of 2014.
