About 10 tailors with old, noisy sewing machines stitch fabrics under the canopy of the shops in the old town of Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe, occasionally look up to reveal forlorn faces.

Osman Kabere says he has been making suits since 1978, but gone are the days when his business gave good returns.

He blames the second-hand clothes trade, which is valued at $1bn (£641m) annually in Malawi, 10 times its value in 1990.

At an expansive flea market nearby, the mood could not be more different.

Malawi: Joyce Banda becomes African continent’s third-ever female head of state

A new female leader in Africa: Joyce Banda, the vice president of Malawi, was sworn in as president Saturday, two days after the death of the country’s longtime leader, Bingu wa Mutharika.  ”I call upon all Malawians to remain calm and to keep the peace during this time of bereavement,” she said. Though there were political concerns which threatened to prevent Banda from taking power — she had been removed from her party, though held onto her vice-presidential post — but when all was said and done, Banda was sworn in, a fairly smooth transition for a country in need of one. Banda is the continent’s third-ever female leader, following in the footsteps of Ethiopian Empress Zewditu and Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. (photo by Mabvuto Banda/Reuters)
