Presidential aide Ntaba in deceased assets stripping controversy

Presidential aide Dr Heatherwick Ntaba  has been faulted by the High Court in Lilongwe for  his conduct in the deceased estate  belonging to his relation in which he was one of the executors.

Ntaba: In deceased estate controversy

Ntaba, who is also governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice president for the Central Region, is at the centre of controversy over the  fraudulent selling of a house in Lilongwe’s Area 12 of the deceased property.

Zione Ntaba, a judge at the High Court based in Zomba, argues that the Area 12 house was sold against the wishes  of her late father, George Maurice Justice Ntaba.

She asked the court  to reverse the sale of the house.

The court found that Dr Ntaba and the Administrator General violated Clause 6 of the Deceased Will by giving the house  to brothers and sisters of the deceased.

Dr Ntaba is also faulted  that even though he knew Zione Ntaba had replaced the executors as the new administrators  of the deceased estate, he did not inform he uncles and aunts of the new administrator.

Zione Ntaba was appointed administrator of her father’s estate in 2005, replacing Dr Ntaba.

But  Dr Ntaba engineered that the  house  – which was given to the mother of the deceased  – be sold to Alice Namata.

“It is also very clear from the evidence that there is scintilla of evidence to show that Phyllis Ntaba, widow of the deceased, was involved in any discussions involving the plot [Alimaunde 12/124],” the High Court Judge Charles Mkandawire observed.

A Ntaba ndi chani muti muyaluke nazo izi?




Mistake number one; appointing a mother to inherit your property instead of your children. It also means when your mother die, your brothers and sisters will inherit your property. So sad. Children must inherit from parents and not parents inheriting from children. I have never heard an indian inheriting wealth from his children. Africans, lets wake up.

Very bad.


Nyopi, you do not seem to understand the law relating to deceased property. Better not air your views and avoid making a fool of yourself because of your ignorance.

Dr Ntaba the deceased estate thief. No wonder he has joined arms with the party, the DHI PHI PHI, which is a mother of cashgate in Malawi.


What is executor? I can’t understand this story. You talk of executor then administrators s confusing then deceased property and estate. Whats the difference between deceased property and estate? Is tobacco estate also a deceased property?


Azimayi akumaphera dala amuna chuma mukati chizipita kwa mkazi. The property should go to the administrator appointed by the deceased. And in this case Dr Ntaba was the executor appointed accordingly.
