Thyolo out of bounds for Winiko: Malawi courts grants injunction

Thyolo West parliamentarian Charles Mchacha has obtained a court injuction restraining comedian-turned-politician Bon Kalindo, who is also Mulanje South East parliamentarian, for visiting Thyolo district on claims that he is bringing confusion over commercial land.

Bon' Winiko' Kalindo:  Injunction

Bon’ Winiko’ Kalindo: Injunction

Mchacha confirmed in an interview that the court injunction has since been served to Kalindo.

“We had to resort to court. Kalindo is obstinate,” Mchacha said.

But Kalindo said he has not yet seen the injunction and down played it, saying he will not slow down his campaign.

Kalindo has been mobilizing the people of tea growing district of Thyolo to stand up against commercial land owners and occupy the land which he argues “rightfully belongs to them.”

According to Kalindo, people of Thyolo and Mulanje were robbed of their land by tea growers “and have been suffering in their own country to accommodate exploiters.”

Malawi’s tea industry, started by colonial masters in the 1800s, occupies thousands of hectares believed to have been grabbed from natives. The industry is also one of the most productive in the world.

In 2014, rose to 8.2 million kilograms, according to Global Tea Digest publisher Rajesh Gupta.

Mr Kalindo I think the best way to do whatever you’re trying to back in Mulanje not in Thyolo cos you don’t come from Thyolo so don’t try to make problems in Thyolo. For some of us who have been previleged to travel across the boarders of our country & see how things are turning out after pursuing with this issue of land grabs. So if it’s fame just try other things not try to get that fame on the expense of the poor people of our beloved district of Thyolo.

kudos to mchacha, that is the way a good and sensible MP works. Winiko is an instrument of the DPP and he is transacting DPP business here. If he is not then DPP could have reprimanded him. This guy has a nerve and he dares to go to forment trouble in the heart of the president’s home village and yet APM is very quiet. This is serious business, maybe the overzealous Kudontoni could have been commenting on this and not courting CEOs to cash the party. It really does not rain, we are complaining of forex shortages and yet we… Read more »
