As presidential spokesperson, Hetherwick Ntaba was last week asked by president Bingu wa Muthalika to write a statement giving the President’s directive to the striking lecturers at Chancellor College of the University of Malawi to resume teaching. As per terms of his duties, Mtaba did accordingly and it was read once on MBC-Tv.

However, the President was not happy with Mtaba’s press statement contents and told him in the face that it was subtle and that it was seen to be sympathizing with the disappointed lecturers. He further crushed the press statement saying it treated Chancellor College lecturers with kid’s gloves.

This criticism distressed Mtaba; he couldn’t disbelieve that president Muthalika had really trashed his statement as weak. Consequently, his blood pressure shot up and he collapsed.

“He was shocked at how the president reacted, his blood pressure rose and collapsed. He was taken to a clinic in Lilongwe and thereafter rushed to South Africa for a medical check up,” the source told Nyasa.

However, according to sources from the state house, Ntaba is not in a life threatening condition. And the source added, “Mtaba is not a strong character. He also collapsed when he was dropped from the cabinet, the man just get too worried.”

Mtaba’s statement was withdrawn from airing and the State House later prepared another statement which gave the President’s directive that the lecturers should go back to class. The statement was issued on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the lecturers have not resumed classes.

    Even when things go sour, remember that things

    It is always of the utmost importance in business to

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
