By POSITIVE RUNWAY

London, UK:Justina Mutale, African Woman of the Year 2012 and Founder/CEO of POSITIVE RUNWAY: Global Catwalk to Stop the Spread will be speaking as a Panelist on PRESS TV's “AFRICA TODAY” Programme on Friday 3rd January 2014.

As the world's second largest continent, the AFRICA TODAY Programme takes an analytical review of political, economic and social events in Africa. In tomorrow's Programme, Ms Mutale and other Panelists will take a rapid sweep across the African continent to review some of the stories that did not get much press coverage on the AFRICA TODAY Programme in 2013. The Panel will focus mainly on 4 countries and reference others facing similar issues.

On Egypt, the Panel will consider the country's constitutional crisis to ascertain whether the divisions within the country are now too big for Egypt to unite, and if at all the new constitution could satisfy the demand of the flawed revolution.

The Programme will also review President Joyce Banda's style of leadership and her position on class based privileges in Malawi. In addition, the Panelists will look at the causes and consequences of the lack of effective government in Somalia and the challenges of the pirate situation, while addressing the instability in South Sudan and the possibility of this continuing into 2014.
