Of Ben Phiri commedy resignation and fight with ‘Commando’ Ntata

We all know that it has been Commando Z Allan Ntata who has been giving the Prime Minister sleepless nights of late. We also know that the Commando has asserted that we have a puppet at state house and that a puppet master is calling the shots.

There are people who were claiming that the puppet master aka Prime Minister Ben Phiri was silent and unmoved with the blistering assertions and revelations from the Commando. They were wrong. The prime minister has been hitting back through his proxies.

The only difference is that Ntata’s articles have been effective for they have been voluntarily carried by almost all credible Malawi online publications. On the other hand, Ben Phiri, having instructed his boys such as Justice Mponda, Chancy Chingwalungwalu aka Magede Si Wandale, James Mwangali, Martin Nkasala and Pato Phoya to assassinate Ntata’s character,  the team has been savagely hitting at the lone soldier Commando Ntata using the DPP’s mouth piece, Malawi Voice. But Phiri’s attacks have lacked impact for they have been generally shallow and lacking merit whatsoever, failing to demonstrate clearly if Ntata is indeed unemployed or if he really wants a government job. After all, Ntata himself repudiated the ‘frustrated’ argument by stating on national TV that he was offered a job but turned it down, and that he did not want a government position.

The bottom line is that these DPP cadets, working on strict instructions from Ben Phiri, have generally done a bad job, which has not managed to change the public opinion on Prime Minister Ben Phiri.

Now having seen that his boys have failed to deal with the Commando, the Prime Minister has switched to Plan B in his desperate attempt to throw his first grenade in order to wound the unstoppable Commando.

Ladies and Gentlemen, from state house, the Prime Minister Ben Phiri has by default obeyed Newton’s Third Law of motion. The law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Having analysed the matter, I can reveal that Phiri’s resignation letter to the President is an indirect response and a counter attack on Commando Ntata! Allow me therefore to unpack this!

Why has Prime Minister Ben Phiri resigned?

Ben Phiri is trying to play a tactical game. He is faking a defeat amidst Commando Ntata’s blistering revelations. This is propaganda, pure Propaganda. Fortunately, days for Malawians to be fed with stinking propaganda are long gone and this is why you must know nothing but the truth else don’t say you were never told.

There is a very good reason why the Prime Minister has faked resignation.

The first reason is that he wants to protect his bruised reputation. Commando Ntata in his popular theory stated that Ben Phiri harbors Presidential ambitions. With allegations of corruption raging against him, Phiri’s move has vindicated the Commando that it is indeed so, because all he is trying to do here is control the ACB to clear him of corruption for future reference.

The logic is simple: Phiri knows that Malawians can’t take him serious on his future presidential ambitions with all these damaging stories hanging on his head.  It is the same as how Malawians can’t take serious one Bright Malopa if he can think of vying for the Presidency owing to his Makiyolobasi Programme which used to savagely attack and undress our respected fathers and mothers in the name of Bakili Muluzi, John Tembo and Joyce Banda just to mention a few, in order for his masters (Malopas) to gain petty political mileage.

In order to protect his reputation, Prime Minister Ben Phiri has devised a plan to discredit Ntata to the nation. The plan is for all Malawians to not only hear but also appreciate that Ntata is a liar, jealous and not worthy to be listened to.

But in making this move, Phiri has helped enhance Ntata’s rating, which has greatly been boosted owing to his stand to speak for the voiceless. Just do a random survey on the social media on who is evil to Malawians between Commando Ntata and Prime Minister Phiri and you will know that Phiri has sensed danger hence his resignation letter to redeem himself.

This is how he did it:

Ben Phiri recently put a story in one of the online media houses that suggested that Ntata through an organization called ICAT has prepared a dossier on the wealth of Ben Phiri which he got corruptly. Ntata has never claimed to have compiled such a dossier and those of us who have followed Ntata’s writing know that if he has been investigating Ben Phiri, he would have made it clear that he was doing so.

Anyway, a day later, Phiri comes with a resignation letter posing as an angel that he has resigned because he wants to allow those who are claiming that he has accumulated wealth corruptly to freely investigate him so justice can take its course.

Phiri knows that Ntata is not investigating him. He just wants Malawians to believe that he is. The idea is that with passage of time, Ben Phiri should come full throttle discrediting Ntata for having failed to prove that he got his wealth corruptly. At that stage, he can then tell the nation that Commando Ntata is a liar and press defamation charges on the barrister not for them to succeed but just to send the message to Malawians that Ntata has failed.

As you can appreciate, the fight is now getting interesting. It is impossible, however, for Commando Ntata to be cornered in this manner because for us to know Ntata’s assertions, all we have to do is go to his facebook page and follow his articles in the media.  If we are to assess the fight so far, however, Commando Ntata seems to be proving that he is not called Commando by mistake.

On the other hand, this resignation letter and the cheap plan to portray Ntata as the villain in this issue has simply exposed Ben Phiri as desperately unsophisticated and dreadfully shallow and unoriginal. Don’t say you were never told!

By the way, given that commando Ntata has on numerous occasions asserted that Phiri is the puppet master and the one that really runs government, it remains to be seen if Mutharika will be able to run the government with Phiri purportedly gone. Perhaps he will find a new puppet master or insist that Phiri should not leave. Watch this space.

  3. Briton Ntata says:

    Ntata is so confused and disturbed. He is jealous of Ben Phiri because he thinks he is the one who blocked him from meeting Peter. It seems this narrow minded guy has nothing to do with his law papers. He can just make his way back home to start his political party to test our vote in 2019 rather than concentrating on baseless things. He thinks Malawi is still in its dark ages in terms of decision making. We are now maturing and no one can trick us to follow their foundationless ideas. So Mr. Ntata you want every political position to be yours. Who do you think you’re dealing with: your wife, kids or maidservant? We know you’re vexed because APM denied you a government post. Are you telling us that there is nothing you can do out there to bring bread on your table apart from politicking? This guy must develop some kind of post election psychosis. He is not swallowing it not given a top post he was eying. Unfortunately APM doesn’t need a legal advisor as he is an expert in that field; the AG and the DPP are enough for him. The guy is just too smart and strict on government expenditures. I think employing you as his legal advisor will be just a waste of our meagre resources because he as an expert in that field of yours can save that money we can waste on you to buy drugs which is continuously stolen by your fellow unpatriotic health worker Malawians. Allan you will be having sleepless nights thinking of vocabularies and fictions against APM up to 2024. My only worry is your health you are endangering because in the end you will die young because of depression and anxiety. No doubt you’re not a credible lawyer: does our constitution allow us the Prime Minister post or you want to create it? No wonder not picked for legal advisory role, to hell with your lies. If you’re patriotic why choose to serve foreign governments and only to bring trouble home? Why run away from your poor country at the time it needs your true constructive ideas to build it? You lazy fool you just want zinthu zophaipha, that’s why you smuggle yourself out to UK because everything there ndi zophaipha. If you are really a man come back home, Africa needs you to help in its struggle to build our mother lands. The West you are clinging to started from the scratch centuries and centuries ago and they are really patriotic to their countries. This leads to their cleverness of bringing there life styles to us: systems of government, dressing, food preparation, schools, etc., in order to create markets. Them culture has no real meaning but making money and developing their countries is the most important. APM is delivering and little by little we’re getting assimilated to zero deficit introduced by our fallen economist, the true leader, Bingu the great. Mr. Ntata keep on making noise to your fellow fortune seekers, but for us true creative Malawians you are just wasting your time and this is the FACT!!!

  4. Danger chipino says:

    There is no reason to resigne. We know you did a very good job for serving your master, reverse your mind and come back to the state House.

  5. Ntata is the fool’s commando who fight his own battles. He thinks sane Malawians are behind his foolish publications and he has to be assured that he will be in these shoes for the rest of his life. If he is the true hero why running away from Malawi seeking confortable life in UK. True heroes are the ones whose true services are on the rolling now in zero aide budget. This Ntata guy and his cohorts are full of jelousy aiming at political gains maginalised in narrow minded people. Mr Ntata your foolishness will pay you not long and this is the fact. Those dosed with Ntata Utopia let them enjoy it but you are fighting a batttle you will never win. As a true barister are you telling the truth that there is the post of the Prime minister in Malawi? Who do you think you are dealing with? Only your fellow jihadists are the ones you can cheat. While you’re enjoying confontable Kentucky in London be reminded that true Commandos in Malawi are daring zero deficit and finding means to defeat it not your nonsense

    Dpp followers wont learn no matter how somebody enlightens their foolishness they keep on clapping hands.

  7. Hoitty says:

    koma Peter akunyizeka bwanji. mpakana he will fail to run the govt without Ben Phiri? Muzilembako za ulemu

  8. VYOTO says:

    The developments surrounding Ben Phiri, Malopa and the likes points to the fact that the whole professor Peter Muthalika is surrounded by very cheap people. Notwithstanding his professorship, Peter is as hopeless as Amayi amandazi aja. At least late Bingu could talk sense ,demonstrate signs of a visionary leader and give hope to Malawians especially during his 1st term.

    Some of us will pray hard that Peter should rule Malawi only for 1 term.


    The truth of the matter is Ntata thought DPP wont make it into government hence he started talking sheet about DPP way back during the PP hoping that he can be an angel to the next government so that he can be considered a govt job. Unlucky he is DPP made it as the only trusted party by the Almighty to be the party in govt this time. So it was obviously nuisance to himself to shift to the side of theDPP looking at how he has bruised the party. As a result has resorted to personalities and the person of his calibre he has seen is Ben Phiri.

    A person who does good and serves his master well is always without enemies. Every Malawian knows how you have fought a good job for your Master Professor Muntharika in thick and thin situations and it is common knowledge fr the President that Ben Phiri is one of the people close to his chest. Expect to face such ill things but truly there’s nothing you can resign for. You still stood with the President when you were nearly killed by the PP cadets why should you do it now?

  21. Real Patriot says:

    Its time to build Malawi.Whether Ntata is a lawyer or not who cares?We need people who are innovative and creative who can take out Malawi from this sorry state.Ntata ran away when ngwazi bingu was lying cold in a casket a sign that he was there for being atidyenawo.Uyunso Ben Phiri the chola boy, has been confusing the already confused old man who happen to be our president with cooked up stories.We need people with brains to take out Malawi from the sinking than some weed smoking Ntatas and pea brained Ben Phiri who are just mere attention seekers.Can you spare us from this crap please?

  22. Ine says:

    If there is a dog pa nyumba and it is keeping away bad elements, let it be there. So let Ben be there as he is helping bad characters like ntata away from power. Even loud mouths like the kaliatis, callisters, chapondas, mussas are hardly heard these days. Me I love Ben Phiri he is helping us like a dog helps a household even if the neighbors dont like it.

  26. Aaron Nsena says:

    These two thugs indeed have time to build castles. Had they known that we Malawians are taking then as fools, they would have stopped. Look at their pictures. Ntata is a chamba smoker, a coward who couldnt face the law he profess to have studied. Remember he ran away the time the people he was advising were arrested. Now ali ndi nsanje kuti malo ake pali wina. Its a fight of a dying horse, so ti speak.

    In fact the stupid and irony part of it is this dull dude making his announcement on a private radio and claims that he did not discuss his resignation with his boss yet he claims to be a personal assistant. On the other hand we have the state house coming with a rebuttal. What nosense. By refusing to let him go then it goes to confirm that indeed the president is a puppet and can’t do anything without Ben Phiri. What stupidity coming from government .I used to like peter but with this kind of stupidity coming. I will hate him from now onwards .

  43. mwana mulopwana says:

    Ntata is a frustrated man, very unfortunate for a lawyer with Masters to be crying like a baby, If some of the people were given an opportunity like that of Ntata, they could have made use of the opportunity, I have said for several times that Ntata is a real failure who knows well that he can not achieve but he will knock at other peoples door to assist him with opportinuty of job and there after giving him protection since he knows he can not deliver as well as achieve.
    Munthu wonvetsa chisoni kwabasi, He got the job at Parliament because of this stupid later and the interview was done in her bedroom because he was able to to satisfy her libido, shame on you Ntata, you had all the time during Bingu regime
    Soon we will remember this stateme that appeared in things fall aprt, , That man was one of the greatest men in umufia, you drove him to kill himsels and now he will be buried like a dog, Please Ntata Take care before you become one of the fools

If Ntata is your key columnist, why do you allow him to use Nyasatimes as a platform to settle his scores? This Ben/Ntata feud is not for us.
