Malawi: Zuneth Sattar, the man, the myth and the legend!

The Sattar Papers leaks are revealing, not only is ministers possibly implicated and also other big-men, appointees and ministry busy trying to hide the dirty laundry from plain-sight. However, what is striking is the deafening lack of noise. It is like it doesn’t matter from the Tonse Alliance and neither is the opposition DPP active. Everyone is silent and letting procedure follow through.

The President and Vice-President isn’t saying much, if anything. Neither is anyone for that matter in the cabinet. The former President and party affiliates isn’t coming out with statements either. It is like Sattar has imposed himself and captured the political elite, in such a manner. That the Malawian politicians and ruling elite cannot talk.

The most ironic thing here is that these men and fellow representatives is usually the most talkative of them all. They can talk for hours and hold long speeches. Nevertheless, on the Sattar Papers leaks… they are silent as a grave and even a falling coffin makes more noise.

Zuneth Sattar’s businesses must really be thriving and running smoothly. In Malawi he must be the king-pen and the man to be. He can afford to pay of the political elite and know they are loyal to him. No matter what promises or scandals, his businesses will have an advantage. If it is getting land, tenders or whatnot. He got a connect and a plug on speed-dial. They will hook him up and he will give them a kickback.

That’s why they are silent now. Not saying a word. They are just hoping people are forgetting and can soon look at the next scandal. So, that Sattar and all his businesses is forgotten all about.

The President and his cabinet feels the same. This is an added stress and not a relief. The man and the legend is bankrolling them and it’s a free dinner. They are getting food and perks while only giving the businessman favourable advantages in the Republic. This is a beneficial arrangement and just like the predecessors. It is their time to eat and Sattar has the plate prepared and ready for them. They just have to sit down and eat.

Sattar should be proud of himself. His able to create a State Capture. Where the people his compromising isn’t making a fuzz. Neither is the opposition or the crowds asking for resignations. There is no Commission or government agency properly investigating things. Because, if you follow the money and the transfers of funds. It will become bloody and the ones implicated will be above people’s pay-grade and possibly confidential. Therefore, Sattar is getting of the hook and be the crook.

Malawians should be shattered by this silence, the politicians are telling who is boss and it’s not them. It is Sattar and his clientele are them. They are serving each other and paying each other off. In secret arrangements, which ensure profits for both parties. The only ones losing out is the taxpayers and the competition of Sattar. They cannot compete, as his the plug for the government. Peace.
