Country Report
The article discusses the need for economic and political reforms in Malawi. Since the start of 2011, pressure allegedly has been mounting on President Bingu wa Mutharika and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) with developments like the diplomatic concern that has resulted in the halting of British aid disbursements, decline in foreign assistance, and increase in import costs. A 350 million U.S. dollars grant to improve Malawi's power infrastructure was suspended by the U.S.
