The death of Aleke Banda was announced on 9 April 2010. Although he was born in Zambia (then Northern Rhodesia), was educated in Zimbabwe (Southern Rhodesia) and died in South Africa, he was a true son of Malawi (Nyasaland). His home district was Nkhata Bay in the Northern Region. Banda’s life in politics (1953–2008) was devoted intensely to his country as it fought for and won Independence from Britain in 1964, as it established the political and economic structures of an independent state under Hastings Kamuzu Banda and as it created the framework of a multiparty democracy under Bakili Muluzi (1994-2004).
