Note no Madam President


A number of newspapers are reporting that the president’s office has sent out a message saying that the president does not wish to be referred to as Madam President. In formal notes she is to be referred to as ‘Her Excellency Mrs Joyce Banda’. It is unclear as to how the president wishes to be addressed in person, but presumably Mrs Banda.

The request is in stark contrast to the former president who liked to call himself the ‘conqueror’.
