Ntata explains cancellation of public lecture: Sabotage

At 4:30 pm, we arrived at Victoria Hotel to make all the preparations for the lecture. Every thing was ready up until around 5pm. Then the hotel told us that we had to cancel because of load shedding. I responded that load shedding was not a problem because one can always negotiate with ESCOM to turn the power back on where there is an event going on.

Z. Allan Ntata: Sabotage

After hearing this, the hotel changed tunes and told us that it was in fact not load shedding but an electrical fault that had put the whole hotel in a blackout. We asked about the backup generator, we were told the Genset wasn’t working. We asked about standby electricians that normally every hotel employs to address such emergencies. We were told that the hotel electrician had gone to Mangochi and his phone was off.

We asked to bring our own genset. We were told that that is not allowed. We asked to bring our own electricians to work on the electrical fault, and we were told that that was not allowed either.
We even suggested using a car battery to power our equipment and a few lighting devices so that the lecture could go ahead.

That was when we were told that the order had come from the chairman that since there was no power at the hotel, the lecture should be cancelled and no alternative powering methods should be explored.

As soon as we left the premises, I passed by the hotel again an hour later and the Power was back on. An employee of the hotel has confided to me that there was no electrical fault. He said the chairman of the hotel, MR Gani, called the Events and Conference manager of the hotel and shouted at her, instructing her to ensure that the lecture didn’t go ahead at the hotel and he would pay any compensation and damages incurred afterwards. The informant also told me that it was the order of the Chairman to turn off the power at the hotel and use that as the reason for canceling the event.

We remain undaunted, however, and we will soon announce a new venue and date. There’s no power like the power of an idea whose time has come. And the time has come to end corruption and impunity in this country. How many public lectures and private citizen initiatives are they going to sabotage and block?

To the 200 or so people that showed their support and came to attend the lecture, we apologize and thank you for showing your solidarity and patriotism. We can assure you that these primitively savage methods to deter us will only encourage us to keep going.

  3. Tatyata says:

    Just join politics and face it head on!!!! we know how corrupted you are.

  4. masa masina says:

    May be he is the only courageous one among us who can hold the bull by its hones. Ntata is testing the character of our president and soon we will learn what APM is made of.
    I am also sure that the president knows that Ntata is not a lone foot soldier. There are some other big powers behind him, These are the moments when APM has to act with caution.

  5. wobeba wanga says:

    stupid mtata. APM Boma basi up to 2019.

  6. fedrevolution says:

    Weldone Mtata keep it up as for Gani we know thats where he gets his food he will find all plates dry.These bootlickers are ones drawing back our country by scaring you but i know you ve been there than all of us

  7. What? says:

    “The hotel told us ” is this English from Ntata?

  8. clement says:

    Ntata, it really shows that you are confused after being rebuffed by prof to be part and parcel of DPP. Does it need me to remind people that you were chased by the president after you tried to meet him thru back door and that unauthorized entry in Tunthama state house cost the job of security officer on duty. Everything you are doing will never succeed better find something to do. The president will get tired of you and he’s also a human being,he will react one day. It’s up to you to take it or leave it.

  9. Wakilowe says:

    I pray that God should keep you long under his divine security and Protection, your such bold person that the nation is looking at, however we don’t fight with BIG fish, Brother Mtata let God speak on your behalf, what your doing is full of excellent but You need God to cover you in every seconds. Mtata let God guild and direct you in each and every day,

    May Lord Jesus stand for you, if you not corrupted by any opposition party or donor, I request Brother Mtata, if you have stand on truth, pray everytime God to protect and direct you.

  10. Kid says:

    Ntata do you have people behind you ? Learn from the Undules in mass mob,ization. To me you seem a loner. Be careful Malawians will cheat you ..they are never honesty..they will say keep it up but when it comes to things hotting up they disappear… Undule fought the hardest battle and man . He would have been dead by now from unknown sickness but thanks to GOD who saved him and now is a believer. Ask Rafiq Hajat with his heart attack. Seek GOD first to hear what he is saying . Without GODs voice you are fighting a loosing battle .

  11. Joesy says:

    Mmmmmmm a ntata

  12. Gas Machine Head says:

    Ntata Ntata Ntata. You were part of the DPP governing council. We dont give a damn whether your critique this present DPP governmenjt or not. You are just as corrupt both in the mind and inaterial posessions as the DPP itself. Who published your book “The Trappings of Power?” Wasn’t’ it AuthorHouse? Who are AuthorHouse Publiishers? Just google and you will find out. Whoever publishes with such publishers is “empty and corrupt in the mind”

  13. benjnes says:

    the owner of victoria hotel is the is one of the well wisher to dpp and beneficiary to cashgate. the untouchable one.

  14. sniper from ntcheu says:

    ntata ife akuntcheu takwela yako, keep it up, uwulule zambiri esp 92bn, its giving APM sleepless nites ….

    Mhuu za mwaanthu kodi a ntata mwasowa chochita eti? Who fights with government machinery in Africa? Kenako mungosowapo za ziii

  17. Nyenyezi says:

    zimenezo ndiye zopusa u mean pitala is such uneducated that he can direct a sabotage to public lecture? akuopa chani? as for Gani pita uko ndi corruption yakoyo, I support the other one who has tackled the corruption issue of gani ndizoona I have evidence, no wonder he donates MK10 towards mlakho wa lomwe, zopusa basi?

  18. Maximum Prison says:

    Hahahahahaha I said “you don’t fight against the government” This is just the beginning of miseries yet to befall on you Ntata. Politics is a dirty game. I said ask Undule or Rafiq Hajat! Will tell!

  19. Change says:

    Allan you are the man of the hour. To hell with this clueless government.

  21. Mugonapamhanya says:

    Some people have got tonnes of time between their fingers. What do we benefit from this madness? I cannot patronize this crap because I have got lots of beneficial things to do for myself, my family and my country.

  22. M'jomba says:

    A Mtata, you mean you didnt know that this would happen? We knew this would happen and we did not bother to come although we were interested. Next time try to do it at your house as people will shun to host you for obvious reasons. Good luck.

  23. Akazi says:

    Public lecture for what? Immediately Bingu died you ran away. When DPP reclaimed leadership you resurrected and demanded to be appointed ACB Director. So you want the public to sympathise with you mad man.

  24. Jasistasi Chilungamo says:

    Ntata you don’t even need to waste your breathe for nothing.This country is dead with this useless dead professor who got the mantle through the crooked way.Everything is a flop at the moment.He is capitalising from the mass illiterate Malawians who cannot stand up for themselves when things are going wrong.Nothing is working with his zero aid budget while the cost of living is becoming unbearable for ordinary Malawians and him is feasting from the loot of his deceased brother.

  25. dwambazi says:

    Sue the hotel for gross breach of contract, they will never do this again!!!! soldier on Ntata, soldier on! you are the voice of the voiceless.

  26. BigMan says:

    Za zii!

  27. Minho Gifu says:

    Who is interested in this failure? A frustrated crook ? Malawians gave better things to do . Ntata is only subtracting value to everything. Congrats gani for closing your space to this rat

  28. John chaikah says:

    Gani has been allocated a contract with the malawi army for supply of billions of kwachas. Do u think he can allow allan to hold a press conference against government and subsequently the billions of kwachas. ACB where are u ??

  29. buyache says:

    Tili kumbuyo kwa ntata

  30. Patriot says:

    Ukufuna kupusisa ndani iwe cadet wa DPP?
    Unakakhala kuti uli against Peter, atakunjata kale kale.
    Wina anamangidwa chifukwa chotukwa Peter. Iwe umamutukwana daily, koma sakukumangayi. Chifukwa cha ichi, ife tikudziwa kuti mwapangana ka filimu kabodza ife tiziti simukugwirizana, kuseli mukudyera mbale imodzi.
    Ntata ndi DPP yakoyo mukagwere uko fwetseki.

  31. H. Kamanga says:

    Ntata you lost my support when you demonstrated that Mphwiyo is a saint as far as cashgate is concerned. It shows that you are clueless. How can you give a verdict to a case which is still in court and every finger pointing at him. Even an illiterate can see that Mphwiyo is one of pillars in cashgate saga. So my advice is that concentrate on your life and dont waste people’s time with cases you have no knowledge of.

  32. Malawian says:

    A whole Professor,I mean Peter Muthalika, cant appreciate the value of public lectures???????No wonder Njovuyalema says this Professor is clueless to turn around the economy,the kwacha exchange rate against major currencies is cruizing at supersonic speed yet when this Professor was in opposition he used make the most noise about the kwacha value,empty noise of course.Let us give this sleepy Professor only five years,he does not deserve to be at State House going by how bad the economy is being managed !!!!!!

  33. Gopaninji says:

    Iwe nthata usolva. Ulira sunati. Trying to be cleverer than those that have real power? You are too naïve nthata. Consult your Bible again young man.

    A Ntàta, dzulo mumadya limodzi. Pano chalakwika ndi chiyani? You are also part of the problem. Tell us about your role them. You are as greedy as them. You were AN ENEMY WITHIN.

    Inaliponse nthawi ngati yomweyi imene asimongolia adatha nzeru ndipo padalibe nimodzi yemwe adatsala imodzi, koma zodabwitsa nizodzidzimutsa zidachitika, aliyese zidali ngati maloto ali masomphedwa.

We are promoting too much evils. Bible limatchula za ufiti, ife tikuti kulibe, mukutixo tikwatirane amuna tokhatokha, woba 500,000 12yrs imprison while 4.1billion 11yrs imprison. Mphunzitsi kuchimwitsa mwana 14yrs imprison other civil servants and ordinary pple 0yrs imprison, kulemera pa dzina la mphawi nizina zofunika aliyexe payekha aganizire kusiya osati kuchepetsa.

    Mr ntata, i feel sorry for you because you dont know what you are doing. Only time will tell… good nite buddy.

  44. Chatty Man says:

    Mr. Ntata next time book places that are not connected to those bootlickers!! I wish I can listen on podcast ur lecture. All the best man!

  45. Mc Phere says:

    I live in Sunnyside and came to attend same function – the whole sunny side had no electricity on this day, we had some around 8pm

    I am sure Mr Gani was responsible for the blackout of the whole area – blackout that even involved his home, a kilometer away from the hotel. Come on people, where in the world would someone bring a private electrician to work on a property that they do not own.

    Some of these murmurings and accusations are just plain stupid.

  46. Napwito says:

    Kodi mpira WA Arsenal unatha bwanji?

  47. Lure says:

    Pepani Mr. Ntata

  48. tsetsefly says:

    Makape a DPP with your good for nothing Ibu. You keep fighting small things when people are languishing in deep economic mayhem. Wake the hell up and channel your energies on better things than these finer


  49. Ati Cha says:

    Iweyo Ntata ndi Gani nonse kagwereni uko.. We have better things to worry about. Shupiti!!!

  50. Mzee says:

    Zoona Malawi Gani is milking this country dry. But APM is not involed in shady deals with Gani. Just check with the Central Medical Stores and you will be shocked by the level of corruption taking place between CMST and Gani. The best we can do as Malawians is to auction this country to the highest bidder. Everybody is a thief except the dead. Cashgate was better because the money was spent in this country. Gani and his gang unfortunately externalise funds for providing either nothing or low quality products.

  51. The real ujeni says:

    @Truth, to which court, the same courts of Malawi with corrupt judges?

  52. Mapuya says:

    Boma ndichigulu chaanthu ndipomunthu mmodzi ukafuna kulipanga expose boma. Izi ndizomwe zimachita mr ntata u r criticizing this government too much ndipo mtendere weniweni simuziwupeza. The best thing to do is to leave things the way they are otherwise a staged sucide will follow

  53. The real ujeni says:

    DPP government behaves like this country is still a one party state. Peter. Mutharika behaves like he was a lecturer in Mugabe University in Somalia. Where is the freedom the Kamlepos fought for in 1993?

  54. inayakeinayake says:

    I have always told the institution that I work to never support such corporations. That is the reason why the majority of sober and independent organisations avoid such hotels.
    Ntata the power of idea can never be extinguished. Soldier ON.

  55. Phi mike says:

    So Hotel Victoria is owned by government or is pro government? Zachisoni kwabasi.

  56. Truth says:

    If you are a good lawyer you can press charges against the hotel for breach of contract. It all depends on how good you can present your case and account for all further damages this aberration may have caused to you and your team. That;s an option buddy.

  57. Malawiyano says:

    Alhomwe’s monkey tricks . Ntanta , you have a long away to fight your tribe men , be strong ,don’t give up eventually you will win the battle , you are a crowed puller that’s why they are afraid of you.

  58. malawi says:

    Someone hand might be behind this indeed. I frequently stay at Victoria Hotel and I know they have power back up including night technician.

    I have complained of Hotel Victoria quality of services and so too many others from my company. I stopped complamining when I learnt that owners the hotel r too corrupt. They corrupt procurement officers in both government and NGOs to receive bookings
