Business magnate and managing director of Mulli Brothers Limited (MBL), I would not be so naïve as to claim that ‘I am still untouchable’ at a time I am claiming that certain influential people within government are squeezing my business in order to punish me.
If I were Mulli, I would realise that while I might have a point in my claims, the manner in which I have reacted might be viewed as challenging the powers that be.
How I wish I were my good man Leston, because I would appreciate that by openly claiming that ‘I am still untouchable,’ the message I am sending across is that even if they do whatever they could do, they will not succeed.
Perhaps if I were Mulli, I would ease down a gear and consider a dialogue approach in order to avoid ‘kufinyidwa’ further.
I would also appreciate that my past association with the former ruling DPP and late president Bingu wa Mutharika may not help my cause.
If I were the big shot that is Leston, I certainly would find a better way of engaging government on my concerns and put it to them that as a result of the situation my company finds itself in, many Malawians are also being affected through loss of jobs. The confrontational approach will not help matters all that much.
That is if only I were the business magnate that is Leston Mulli. Unfortunately, I am not him!
