Newly elected Malawian President Peter Mutharika (Center R), a young brother of the former late President Bingu wa Mutharika, takes an oath of office alongside the country’s Chief Justice, Justice Anastazia Msosa (Center L), at the High Court on May 31, 2014, in Blantyre, Malawi. Peter Mutharika was sworn today as Malawi’s new president after his arch-rival and predecessor Joyce Banda congratulated him and urged the country to move on from the disputed vote. Mutharika, the brother of president Bingu wa Mutharika who died in office in 2012, appealed to the 11 other presidential candidates to “join me in rebuilding the country” after some — including Banda — contested the results.
