Joyce Banda undecided on 2014 presidency

Fired Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) First-Vice President, Rt. Hon. Joyce Banda, reveals being pestered by people to stand for president in 2014.

But Banda told Zachimalawi in a brief telephone interview she is yet to make up her mind on the issue.
"When the time comes, I will issue a statement," said Banda.
She, however, said she would continue to serve as State Vice-President, adding that her new status (as a non-DPP member) will not "affect my political career".

"People should expect to hear something pertaining to my 2014 aspirations in 2011, said Banda.
Banda got the chop from DPP, alongside party Second-Vice President Khumbo Kachali, on Saturday last week, allegedly for putting up unsanctioned structures in readiness for the 2014 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
