      Yeh Matt, but you have to become President first; and I think you're in line
      behind John Patten.

      Banda, Hastings Kamuzu (b. 1898?1, near Kasungu, British Central Africa
      Protectorate [now Malawi] - d. Nov. 25, 1997, Johannesburg, South Africa),
      prime minister (1963-66) and president (1966-94) of Malawi (until 1964
      Nyasaland). He first became involved in his homeland's politics when white
      settlers in the region demanded the federation of the Rhodesias and
      Nyasaland in 1949. Banda and others in Nyasaland strongly objected to this
      extension of white dominance, but the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland
      was nevertheless established in 1953. In 1959 he was imprisoned by the
      British colonial authorities. He was released in 1960 and a few months later
      accepted British constitutional proposals granting Africans in Nyasaland a
      majority in the Legislative Council. He was minister of natural resources
      and local government in 1961-63, and he became prime minister in 1963, the
      year the federation was finally dissolved. He retained the post of prime
      minister when Nyasaland achieved independence in 1964 under the name of
      Malawi. Malawi became a republic in 1966 with Banda as president. He headed
      an austere, autocratic one-party regime and jailed or executed his
      opponents. He had himself declared president for life in 1971. He
      concentrated on building up infrastructure and increasing agricultural
      productivity. His foreign-policy orientation was decidedly pro-Western.
      Widespread domestic protests and the withdrawal of Western aid forced him to
      legalize other political parties in 1993. In the country's first multiparty
      presidential elections (1994), he was defeated by Bakili Muluzi. Muluzi's
      government tried him for the 1983 murder of four political opponents but he
      was found not guilty. He finally retired from opposition politics in July
      1 Banda's official birthday was May 18, 1906, but he was widely believed
      to be older and the hospital where he died gave his age as 99. For many
      years, it was a criminal offense to discuss his age in Malawi. His nephew,
      former local government minister Katola Phiri, said Banda was actually born
      in 1896 and that his original name was Ackim Kamkhwala Banda before he
      changed it to Hastings Kamuzu Banda. (There even has been a story that Banda
      died young, while a medical student, and that Richard Armstrong, an American
      medical student who had befriended him, had taken his place.)
