However it has been reported that president Banda has distanced herself from the development saying she did neither ordered the deportation nor is she aware of the plan.
According to an investigation it has been revealed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Malawian embassy acted on their own to deport Nkangama without the approval of the president.

According to the court documents Nkangama was allowed to continue staying in South Africa following an injunction she obtained on the matter which was granted by Justice Mwaungulu through her lawyer Kalekeni Kaphale.
“ I obtained an injunction on the matter and I wonder that my government has gone to the extent of facilitating my deportation,” said Nkangama on Tuesday.
Malawi embassy sealed Nkangama's house with all her belongings inside and left her children and workers stranded.
