Former Malawi's President, Joyce Banda declared wanted over money laundering

Police in Malawi have issued an arrest warrant for former President Joyce Banda over a corruption scandal, known as cash-gate, during her time in office.


Mrs Banda is outside the country and the police have said they will ask Interpol for help in getting her to come home, a journalist has tweeted.

Cashgate is the biggest financial scandal in Malawi's history and involved the loss of some $250m of state money. Officials were accused of siphoning off the funds during the presidency of Mrs Banda.

Mrs Banda has not commented on the allegations against her.
