Malawi's president pushes for re-election

Joyce Banda hopes to return to office after Tuesday's vote, but a corruption scandal could harm her chances.

    Joyce Banda, Malawi's president, has held her last rally ahead of Tuesday’s general election.

    Banda campaigned hard for a return to office, but a corruption scandal could hurt her chances of getting re-elected.

    The scandal involves millions of dollars of state funds being stolen under her watch.

    Banda is one of only two female presidents in Africa.
