Ntata: The right man for the job

If you are a Christian, even a bad one, then at least, you should be very familiar with the man, Apostle Paul. Also called Saul of Tarsus, he was a politician of the Pharisaic Party (Party of Pharisees) which was the most influential Party and had huge representation in the Jewish Parliament called the Sanhedrin. He was a graduate from the University of Tarsus and he had a strong legal background having been trained in Law by Professor Gamaliel, the Doctor of Law.



Between 31CE and 33 CE, the Jewish government became too dictatorial and intolerant of criticism, and begun to persecute believers in Christ. Though only a youth, Paul was a brilliant and bold member of government and when the regime begun persecution, Paul was entrusted by the leadership to lead the persecution campaign, so much that though he did not murder, he was there standing and watching and supervising even as Stephen, the first martyr was getting stoned to death in Jerusalem in 34 CE.

Though young Paul was part of government that was persecuting its own people, God in heaven had a different plan for brilliant Paul. At the peak of persecution and suffering, God intervened in about 35 CE. While on his way to Syria, God appeared to Paul, and called him to be the instrument of heaven, and fight against his own Pharisaic Party and the very Jewish government that he had been part of.

But the task was not easy for Paul, because believers did not believe that despite being part of the Party and government that was persecuting them, God had separated Paul and given him a special task to establish a new Christian movement that would rebuke the Pharisees of their evils and condemn the poor governance of the Jewish government. There were better people than Paul; I mean the twelve disciples and their leader Simon Peter could have led new Christian movement to the gentiles, but God knew that Paul, the former Pharisee, was the best man for the Job.

The personal story of Paul, and the politics of his time, reminds me of our one and only Z Allan Ntata, who despite being part of the DPP government which caused serious suffering, threatened critics, plunged the economy and caused serious political instability, between 2011 and 2012, I am very sure that God has all along had a different plan for this young man.

Just like the misplacement of Paul among the Pharisees, I strongly feel that working with DPP was a waste of talent and skill for Ntata. And I am very certain that even while Ntata worked with DPP he still stood for what he believed was right that is why until now, both governments of PP and DPP have failed to accuse Ntata of any corruption or evil deed when he was in government. And as a mere legal advisor to the President, none of the atrocities, and failures of Bingu can solely be blamed on him unless one knows for certain what Ntata had advised the President on particular issues behind the scenes.

People might choose to question why Ntata never rose against corruption and bad governance while he was in DPP and why he only started the fight, when he was no longer in government. This is a very brilliant and logical question, but remember that Apostle Paul did not fight against his fellow Pharisees and Jewish government, until God called him out of the Party and government, and gave him his own special task.

There are definitely better people in Malawi than Ntata who can lead the fight against corruption and bad governance in Malawi. But like I said earlier, God ignored his own twelve disciples that he had worked with for three and half years, and instead chose Paul to lead the Gospel movement to the gentiles, because Paul was the right man for the Job. Only Paul had the needed intelligence, academic qualification, political experience and zeal for the job. Therefore, having followed Ntata and dug deeper into his life, I can boldly declare that Ntata is the right man for the job in Malawi.

    Anyone is better that this…….ANYONE.

  4. Mathasimo Muhiye says:

    Z. Allan Ntata is an opportunistic fellow who wants to be rewarded for nothing. Please shut up and continue with your own work in order to earn your living

  5. nachisale says:

    The argument of the article is rubbish. Ntata is fighting for his stomach and wallet not for Malawians.

  6. Good samaritan says:

    mwina ndi ma hope amenewa eti? kkkkkkkk!!!!!!!

    Which God is Ntata serving? Chakwera? Or Baphomet? Chakwera’s god?

  10. Joseph Banda says:

    THEN REPENT BY REVEALING ALL THOSE THAT SUFFERED UNDER BINGU SO THAT THEIR CASES ARE REVIEWED AND DISCONTINUED. Innocent professionals had their names blacken by the immature behaviour of NTata inorder to gain favors from Bingu. WHAT A SILLY MAN!!!!

  11. Malawian says:

    Ntata is no better than any Malawian. What Malawi needs most are enterprenuers/innovators like Aliko Dangote of Nigeria and Zagaf, Nyati cement of Malawi, than givers of public lectures and so. Talk is cheap, however innovation and bizinesi, with international impact, is the real deal.

    Zopanda nzeru izi can you equal ntata with the saint of God. munalibe zokamba

  14. Inu says:

    Be careful when you want to compare politics with Christianity. They are not the same thing. First and foremost, when Paul was born again, he never justified himself and did not waste time attacking the pharisees. He had a mission and that mission to spread the word of God. Ntata is not spreafing the word of God. Even if were to make a comparision, the role of Ntata would the n be to educate the masses on good governance and human rights. But everything about Ntata is personal fight with the president and self justification. These were not the traits of Paul. If Ntata wants to criticize the president, let him do so without any self justication and malice

  15. Mzungumbuli says:

    Now that Mr Mtata you are looking smart, you can go pa Bible Class (Kalasi la ubatizo) kuti ubadwenso mwa tsopano.

  16. John says:

    Mtata saganiza bwino. He is too intoxicated. Akagwere uko

  17. Miss Government says:

    The only position befitting Mr Ntata is that of shoe shiner for the president.

  18. drzeus says:

    Ntata can be a better candidate for Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs or Attorney. General or ACB Director but not President.

  19. Herbal says:

    God called Paul, and am just wondering who has called Ntata, perhaps he has called himself, lol? People like to make names for themselves with reasons only them know.

  20. Prophet Justice says:

    The article is appetising. The Biblical application enticing. Nevertheless, the writer has come out clearly on what ‘job’ is right for Ntata as he compares him with Apostle Paul. I wish to remind the writer that Peter was the leader of the church chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ who states at some point… ‘upon this rock I will build my church’. This is Jesus referring to Peter that he will lead Jesus’ church. Paul on the other hand had a specific assignment, to take the gospel to the gentiles under the overall leadership of Apostle Peter who Jesus established as a defacto leader of His church.

    Ntata may certainly be a right man for a job but not ‘the overall’ job but perhaps that of carrying out awareness and and evidence based propoor advocacy like Paul did to the gentiles who were perceived to be spiritually poor. He has already proved effective in this equally important role and I pray that Ntata will not loose sight of this task.

    Wat a slippery analogy!

  22. Franco says:

    Lyson sibande and ntata sisiru za anthu or atandithira doom maso don’t ever want to hear their names

  23. Highly Favoured says:

    I don’t know the terms of reference for the Presidential Advisors but it’s nothing knew to see an Advisor turning into a Defender. When the President has goofed on something else, presidential advisors quickly go on air to ‘clarify’ the matter in question. I don’t know if Z Allan Ntata was at any point turned into such a robot, useless idiot licking the president’s dirty boots. If that ever happened, well,, that’s part of life. However, from the letters that Ntata brought on this page regarding his pieces advice to Bingu, he was strong and really giving advice to the president. With these few remarks, I support the motion; Ntata is indeed the Man.

  24. Zatha says:

    Which job is this?

  25. hisbolla says:

    Hear, hear, hear

  26. Dalitso says:

    Well articulated article. Keep it up

  27. DPP Boma says:

    Ntata should never be placed anywhere near power. He has successfully shown his absolute immaturity by failing to engage with government in a diplomatic manner. He has taken his so called advice to the social media. He has now outgrown his relevance as he is failing to find anything newsworthy in his tantrums. Now we know why the rastaman was emotionally attacking government left, right and centre. Was he pushing for his own presidential candidature? Poor Ntata! What a miscalculated strategy for someone harbouring presidential ambitions.

  28. drogba says:

    koma akulu awa (Ntata ndi sibande) ndi zitsiru bwanji,?? like do they have something else to do in this life apart from posting senseless rubbish on nyasatimes?? is sibande that foolishly cheap he allows Ntata to pay him to write such sewage about him?? za zii zenizeni

  29. Shoe Shiner wa Pitala says:

    Ntata can get a job from Pitala.He is looking smart now after removing his dreadlock.
