Aid flows once more


On Friday UK Development Minister Andrew Mitchell released £33 million ($50.7 m) in aid to Malawi with immediate effect. The money will be used for agricultural, health and educational projects.

Last week the African Development Bank also announced that it was releasing $45 million (£29 m) in three tranches for a number of unspecified projects.

Meanwhile, President Joyce Banda has decreed that the presidential jet and a fleet of 60 Mercedes cars should be sold.
