Malawi's Banda praised for economic reforms

First female president receives praise from abroad but some critics at home say reforms taking too long.

    Celebrations are being held in Malawi to mark one year since president Joyce Banda took office.

    Since coming to power, Banda has won praise from abroad for introducing economic reforms.

    But at home, she's attracted opposition from critics who say that progress is not moving fast enough.
