New Day, New President

How things change.
Within three days of President Bingu wa Mutharika's sudden death, government administration has changed hands.
From the Democratic Progressive Party regime, which was unanimously elected in May 2009, we have the People's Party (PP)of Joyce Banda.
Like the DPP in 2005 (which came into power through the back door), we have the PP-  a party that was not elected to assume the rains of power.
Now, Joyce Banda is Malawi's first female president, and Africa's second.
How things change, though the days and nights remain the same.
Chief Justice Redson Munro will go into the annals of history as the man who did it; administering the oath of allegiance and office.
