This programme has received much criticism from the international donor community, a relationship which was key in getting the country's economy off the ground when Bingu wa Mutharika came into power as President in 2004. Sue Beukes spoke to the president and asked him how he managed to balance the relationship between the much need donor support and implementing his agricultural subsidy programme.
