Bingu wa Mutharika, Malawi

Trained economist and politician Bingu wa Mutharika was elected president of Malawi in 2004 and was re-elected in 2009 after achieving broad success in his food and agricultural policies. However, Mutharika’s administration was marred by widespread public protests over his purchase of a $14 million presidential jet.

The 78-year old Mutharika suffered a heart attack on the morning of April 5th, 2012, and was flown to a south African hospital where he was confirmed dead two days later.
