Gerald Viola’s confirmation of Pres. Mutharika as puppet angers State House

LILONGWE (MaraviPost)—Barely few months after Barrister Z Allan Ntata branded President Mutharika as a puppet—someone who is controlled and manipulated by his top aide Ben Phiri—his (Mutharika’s) press secretary Gerald Viola has in an Exclusive interview on Times TV confirmed that his boss is indeed a puppet who is simply a figure head as decisions which matters to run the country are made by his puppet master.

When Viola was cornered by the no-nonsense host of the Programme Brian Banda, he revealed that his (Viola’s) predecessors were fired because they were not appointed by President Mutharika himself but people who control him.

At the time Viola was going to state house as press secretary, Mutharika had already fired Fredrick Ndala and Timpunza Mwansambo from his Press Office.

“There were people that were making appointments on behalf of the President and these people (Ndala and Mwansambo) didn’t have a personal connection with the President,” Banda quotes Viola confirming to all and sundry that Mutharika is indeed an undoubted Puppet President.

Our state house source says that a team from State House went to Blantyre to fetch for the original recording of the programme after learning that Viola was trying to bribe Times TV officials to edit the sensitive parts or record a new programme altogether before it is aired on Saturday (today) at 8pm.

The source says that Mutharika later watched the recording together with Mutharika have informed us the President is not comfortable with what his Press Secretary said and is likely to take stern action on him.

The bone of contention is on a statement from the Press Secretary in which Viola told the host, Brian Banda, that his appointment was the first genuine decision that the President has made in his Press Office as previous ones were just made by presidential aides and chief of staff at State House.

Through the watching and analyzing of the recording at State House, it was also noted that Viola never addressed the President as “His Excellency” which is a standard procedure for State House officials when they address the media on matters relating to the First Family.

Nevertheless, Times TV management is said to have told the state house team which stormed their offices that that they will broadcast the interview without editing these so called sensitive parts.
