Only Malawians can assess me - Banda
A year ago, following the death of Bingu wa Mutharika, Joyce Banda became President of Malawi.
The economy was in bad shape and things were also falling apart on the political front. Banda allowed a 49 % currency devaluation on the advice of the International Monetary Fund. The price of goods and services shot up.
BBC's Komla Dumor sat down with her on a recent visit to the UK, and began by asking just how much influence external players like the IMF may have over Malawi's economy.
