Ntata is frustrated failure ‘cooking up stories’ –State House

President Peter Mutharika is taking a fight with his critic Allan Ntata far and wide . After suing him for defamation, Mutharika has said barrister Ntata has chosen to make a career out of slander by “cooking up stories “ aimed at tarnishing the President and those they perceive to be stumbling block to his ambitions and his henchmen to land lucrative government jobs.

Z. Allan Ntata: Am keen for good govrnance in Malawi

In a statement made through his Press Secretary Gerald Viola, the Malawi leader said Ntata is leader of “a few disgruntled individuals” who were ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) campaigners.

According to State House, Ntata, who is also believed to have hatched the idea to block former president Joyce Banda from taking the county’s Presidency following the death of Bingu wa Mutharika, had his own expectations when the DPP took over power in May 2014.

Ntata was the legal adviser to former president late Bingu wa Mutharika.

“For reasons best known to themselves, the individuals don’t seem satisfied with their current occupations but have chosen to make a career out of slander by cooking up stories aimed at tarnishing the President and those they perceive to be stumbling block to their ambitions to land lucrative government jobs. These individuals are led by Mr Z Allan Ntata,” a statement from State House said.

“And having sensed that his expectations may not be met, Mr Ntata decided to embark on a mudslinging drive at the Presidency and his Advisor and Personal Assistant Mr Ben Phiri. This is common knowledge to all Malawians who patronize the on-line publications and social network among other communication outlets,” reads the statement.

But Ntata said the claims of seeking government jobs are baseless.

“I have nothing to be bitter about because I have never wanted or expected a government position. In fact, at the beginning of this administration, I made that very clear to Mutharika’s advisors. The truth of the matter is that I have never expected anything from Peter Mutharika except that he should be a good leader and lead Malawi to economic prosperity. I happen to have had experience working in government and that experience was enough for me,” said Ntata recently in an interview posted on Malawi Newsnow online publication.

Ntata said he is only “keen to see good governance in Malawi.”

However. Viola stated that there is no truth to the allegations that Ntata and others are making either directly or using their pseudonyms ( Zigoba).

According to him, the President will continue to respect the Constitution which he swore to uphold, therefore at no point “shall the President interfere in any transactions that are carried out by duly mandated public institutions”.

Khoswe wakudzala adaulula awo ali padenga. Ntata knows this administration very well. He will continue to throw in bits and pieces until Peter true colors will be revealed. There is something brewing which Nata is yet to disclose mark my words. The president needs to come clean with Malawians before he is exposed. The donors are also watching. If the president is truly genuine in his efforts to eradicate corruption, why is he mum on Viola matter? Why has he not commented on the murder of ACB official? The man is so corrupt that he does not know where to… Read more »

Please people do not comment out of frustration here. The state house press man is saying he Mr Z Allan Ntata was leading in other way was a leader for the DPP campaigners in the run up to the tripartite elections 2014. Basing on that statement it is stupid or absurd to utter that during campaign he was no where near the DPP family. Cheat us with something else no this gusto.

This Ntata guy has a point. He don’t want any government position. At the same time he said what he expect from Professor, of all professors Peter Muthalika is a good leader. This is interesting. I like this Ntata guy, he is good and smart. To my opinion, I think this Ntata guy, was also involved in this game called cash gate and now he want his share from his uncle Peter. Sorry, am just suggesting.

You have to have some reputation (or earned some genuine respectability) to be defamed. Mr. President seems to have none! I maintain he can not be defamed!

You are keen for good governance in Malawi. Thus why we need you to come and explain that to all Malawians. Some Malawians do not cooperate with you possibly because you are not talking the same language. Come on Man.

Barrister Z A Ntata is not frustrated. I think it is the bootlickers and corrupt people who are frustrated. You are messing Malawi big time. Mafuta a 6th July, munagawa, and you are messing the country big time. Dr. Ben Phiri, (kkk Doctor wa matchabwada) umuwuze puppet achite zokomera anthu ndipo akonze dziko liyambe kuyendanso bwino.
