Akukunamiza amenawa Kalindo. Kudontoni and Mchacha cannot forgive you, they will destroy you when the campaign period approaches for the next elections. They are only cautious about your popularity and the sympathy some section of the society would have for you. Begin to strategise yourself to be an independent candidate in 2019 because these guys will fight tooth and nail to disqualify you in the primaries and plant their own stooge. You are now a bad boy, wake up man and see far – this is politics.

I AGREE WITH GOGODASI, KALINDO SHOULD FORGET ABOUT HIS MEMBERSHIP WITH DPP. DPP IS JUST AFTER SILENCING KALINDO BUT COME 2019, KALINDO WILL NEVER STAND ON DPP TICKET. MARK MY WORDS! SO KALINDO BETTER START STRATEGIZING AHEAD OF 2019.
