Malawi's Banda, Chilima in Electoral Alliance Fallout

Barely two days after she endorsed Vice President Saulos Chilima for May 21 presidential election, Joyce Banda has announced her withdrawal from the opposition coalition. Reports say Banda and her People's Party are back in the presidential race because Chilima refused to take on board Banda's son Roy Kachale as his running mate.
