Viola moved again: Ntaba spin doctor at State House

Gerald Viola who was fired as Presidential Spokesperson and sent back to the Ministry of Information  to work as technical advisor, replacing another former Press Secretary of the President Frederick Ndala,  is on the move again as he has been redeployed elsewhere, Nyasa Times understands.

Ntaba: Spin doctor

Viola has now been sent to Malawi Posts Corporation on a post yet to be communicated to him.

According government sources the shifting of Viola from Information Ministry to Posts Corp follows a series of interviews he has been granting to radio stations bragging that his redeployment is a promotion and not demotion.

Meanwhile, President Peter Mutharika is yet to name his new spokesman.

But he has politician-cum-medical doctor Hetherwick Ntaba within State House as a spin doctor.

Ntaba, who served as spokesperson to former president Bingu wa Mutharika until his sudden death in April 2012, is now President Peter Mutharika’s chief adviser responsible for domestic policy,  and has been assisting  Minister of Information, Tourism and Civic Education Jappie Mhango.

The President’s chief adviser on economic affairs, Collins Magalasi, is also working as the President’s executive assistant.

It is true that birds of the same feathers flock together.H.Ntaba behaves like a one-eyed prostitute,he has no sense of credibility.I remember vividly when Ntaba led the MCP delegation to Paris Conference on multi-party Democracy,he catagorically committed to see that Malawi remains a one- party dictatorship,Peter Muthalika himself was there as the representative of the exiled Malawiians in the USA,but today,the very same quisling,is nominated to be the so-called Spokesman for a clueless President Peter Muthalika,what sort of a Spokesperson is going to be? It is unfortunate that Muthalika is associated with an opportunist who would sell or betray the… Read more »

If Ntaba chosen to be the spokesperson, DPP reputation will go down completely. Ntaba is very insensitive and inconsiderate person. He is prepared to injure someone’s feeling as long as he pleases his bosses.
That is why the British govt rejected him to be Malawi Commissioner to UK when APM appointed him because he said nasty things when Bingu deported the British High Commissioner to Malawi.
