This paper details the conditions under Malawi President-for-Life Hastings Kamuzu Banda, between the years of 1964-1994. It discusses influences on African politics such as agricultural health and foreign/colonial influences, as well as religious strife. The bulk of the paper is split into two sections: a political history based on journalism, and a human rights history based on firsthand accounts of human rights workers and religious missionaries. The persecution of the Jehovah's Witnesses in Malawi, one of the most brutal acts of the Banda government, is discussed in its relevance to the nationalist sentiment that Kamuzu Banda fostered before he was ousted by democratic election in 1994.
