The resignation of member of Parliament (MP) for Mulanje South as Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) deputy publicity secretary  has been branded as “good riddance” by the party top brass.

Kalindo has resigned from his position and from the party’s national governing council (NGC) after the party summoned him to a disciplinary hearing.

“I have now stepped down as the DPP deputy spokesperson but I still remain the party’s member. The reasons behind are person,” said Kalindo.

However, this contradicts with what transpired at the meeting according to some internal source.

“What happened was that Kalindo was asked to choose one thing between a party’s deputy spokesperson and activist but he opted to be activist and he stepped-down,”  said a member who attended the meeting and DPP secretary general Ecklem Kudontoni confirmed.

After the meeting, DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila told the press that the party has not expelled Kalindo as claimed by Kudontoni.

But Kudontoni said DPP welcomes the resignation of  comedian-cum-politician whom he describes as “attention seeker”, saying t is “good riddance.”

Kalindo said  he “voluntarily” told the disciplinary committee about his desire to relinquish his position as deputy publicity secretary.

“In principle, the committee agreed but said my resignation is subject to confirmation by President Peter Mutharika who is the leader of the party,” said Kalindo.

The disciplinary committee comprised, among others, the party’s senior officials such as its vice-president George Chaponda (Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development), secretary general Ecklain Kudontoni and his deputy Grace Chiumia (Minister of Sports and

Culture), publicity secretary Francis Kasaila (Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation), national campaign director Jappie Mhango (Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security) and legal adviser Charles Mhango.

DPP officials attacked Kalindo for organizing his half-naked protests against the killings and abductions of people with albinism.

This is the only time I have some respect for Kalindo. He seems serious about what he’s doing. I always suspect something fishy from this Dead People’s Party on the albino killings. Someone is helping to clear their names on the killings of Albinos but they chose to shut him up, the minister of justice attacks the Amnesty International on the same, tell me something is not adding up here. Should we assume some big names are involved in the maiming of albinos? One day truth will out.

Atumbuka kukadzadzana choncho ku Dead People Party; get this is a party that hates atumbuka to the core. Hates northern region like nobody’s business. Kuvetsa chisoni a Jappie Mhango, Grace Chiumia and Charles Mhango. Ndalama inaperekadi mwana wa Mulungu.

Muli ndi a George chaponda who hates your own people and region. You’re imbeciles f……k . You are only being used as Manyuchi condoms.
