Malopa censure MP Kalindo:  ‘Lawmaker not conversant with his own laws’

Former advisor to President Peter Mutharika on communication and strategy, Bright Malopa has taken to Facebook to censure garrulous Mulanje South member of Parliament (MP) Bon Kalindo for his push on death sentence following the dramatic rise in abductions and killing of persons with albinism.

Malopa:  Kalindo is not familiar with the laws

Malopa: Kalindo is not familiar with the laws

Kalindo,  a comedian-cum-politician,  has even  said he will  stage a naked protests to lobby  fellow lawmakers to support his cause to retain capital punishment.

But Malopa said death sentence is already in the law of Malawi and Kalindo is clueless on what the laws stipulate.

Wrote Malopa on his Facebook: “Bon Kalindo is threatening to walk naked in an effort to put pressure on fellow MPs to retain capital punishment on albino murderers. Is the [honourable]MP aware that capital punishment has not been repealed from our constitution? Sounds like the lawmaker is not conversant  with his own laws.”

President Peter Mutharika  has also said he would not introduce a death penalty as it already exists for homicide in Malawi.

The High Court abolished the mandatory death penalty after it was deemed unconstitutional, but although not implemented, Malawi has retained the death penalty for murder, rape, treason, armed robbery and burglary with aggravated circumstances.

Kalindo said it should be mandatory in law that albino killers should face death sentence.

“If it does not happen I will walk naked from Old Town [Lilongwe] to Parliament Building to show my fury and force it to happen with speed because we are not doing enough,” said Kalindo on Sunday.

Kalindo,  who is also deputy spokesperson for  ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP),  added that he has done a research which he has found out that albino body parts are magnetic and that their hair can be weaved into fishing lines to help fisherman make a big catch.

Witchcraft  and mysterious occult beliefs have been blamed for the surge in attacks targeting albinos.

    Malopayi nde chifwamba chenicheni ka a. The law is already there. What is needed is to amend the law to force a sitting President to sign for death penalty for all murderers. That is what #TeamBonKalindo is fighting for.

    Malopa what are you afraid of. You are the kind of people who are bringing confusion in our midst. Kalindo wants the law to be implemented.

    amalawi kuzolowera kunyozana, Malopa why couldnt you try to get in touch with the honorable mp and try to explain what u thought of his ideas rather than going public to show that your friend is ignorant and you r very knowledgeable. nchifukwa sititukuka PHD too much amalwi always wanting to outshine and outdo each other. instead of seeing what the bigger picture in the mp’s outburst u go into the nitty gritties.

    Winiko should walk naked for 362 kms like those brave kids tiwone ngati ka shaft kakeko sikauma ndi mphepo!

  7. Martin says:

    Kalindo is moving fast is his ideas and will end up being on the other side of the road and may lose his seat in 2019. He wants to be seen as know it all like Wilfred Nawena and may fast track his end….

    People like you Malopa are exactly what Malawi does not need for any position of power.
    . . . Malopa’s blind loyalty for APM has robbed him of all remaining kilobyte of reason he had (if at all he had any).

    No matter the amount of madness we can attribute to Kalindo’s demeanour, his cause is very commendable and anyone who attacks Kalindo – calling him unreasonable, unconversant with laws e.t.c; is an albino-hunter or a sympathiser of the albino hunters; and does not want them hanged.

    What you Malopa could have done (if at all you are more reasonable than Kalindo – which is very unlikely), was to advise Kalindo on what he was supposed to do (if you think he is wrong), the procedure he has to follow to achieve his noble cause, not just attack him as you have done here. What are you trying to do? discourage him?
    ……………………………………………………………………………….
    APM may be a professor of law but I can assure you, APM knows very little about law; he has all along demonstrated it; when he fails to bring legal sanity in the country.
    . . . if APM thinks we already have a law in place, why are his courts not using it?
    . . . is the presence of a law which is not being used, any different from the absence of the law?
    . . . is Kalindo wrong therefore to advovate for the same? You people are mad and evil!
    “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” – Desmond Tutu
    And this is exactly what you Malopa, APM and others who are disperaging Kalindo, are doing!

      Thank you. Indeed Kalindo has found a fight so dear that he is not only ready to join but prepared to lead and die for. It is people like him that freed this nation from many bandages before and will free this nation in future not shameless malopas that are all around us. Foolish hand clappers

    That’s a fact from Mr. Malopa. Bon kalindo need spend sometime in the library within the parliament building and educate himself on the basics of Malawi law.By now he could even have known that walking naked in public is a crime in Malawi…unless you are mentally challenged.Let him show teenagers his nakedness and we gonna arrest the idiot.

  12. [email protected] says:

    hahahahahah Mr. Malopa you have ran out of ideas? logic yavutatu apa. I think you are the one who failed to understand Kalindo’s remarks. in my own understanding, Kalindo wants the death penalty to be implemented not the other way round

    1. Counter Attack says:

      Malopa is right. You are the one who seem to have a problem understanding the queen’s language

      1. Najere Chitekwe says:

        I am the only one who is right

      2. Iwe Malopa usaonke ngati wodzitsata. Understand that Bon Kalindo MP wants implementation of the law not otherwise because he is speaking his language ya drama so do not misrepresent his meaning of the whole issue. Mbuzi iwe eti!

    2. Fireworks says:

      That is also my understanding of Kalindo’,s point of view

    3. hhmdidi says:

      That is also what I understand not what Malopa is trying to put into Kalindos mouth

    4. Mphwache wa Bingu says:

      Then that does not require him to lobby fellow parliamentarians. He has to lobby the president who has the final say otherwise parliament has nothing to do with it because it is already in the laws of Malawi
