Court issues arrest warrant for MP Kalindo over audio containing allegations on Malawi albino syndicate

Malawi Police have obtained a warrant of arrest for Member of Parliament and UTM Party’s youth director Bon Kalindo over the production of an audio clip which implicates President Peter Mutharika and his aide Dr Hertherwick Ntaba in the albino body parts business.

Kalindo: Arrest warrant issued

Police got the warrant of arrest from the Zomba Magistrate Court signed by Principal Resident Magistrate Mzondi Mvula.

The audio clip which has gone viral on social media was recorded and shared by suspects who were arrested and are currently in Malawi Prisons.

The suspect implicates Mutharika and Ntaba in the operation of albino body parts business in the country which has recorded almost 10 incidents of abductions and killing of people with albinism since the start of 2014.

“It is true that Magistrate Mvula issued a fresh warrant of arrest for Bon Kalindo and they want to charge him using the Electronic Transactions Act over the audio clip circulating on social media,” said Judiciary spokeswoman Agnes Patemba .

She told a local radio that the issue is in connection with the audio clips circulating on social media over the killings of persons with albinism.

Kalindo  is also facing another case of insulting the President contrary to Section 4 of the Protected Flags, Emblems and Names Act.

He has another  case on disorderly conduct at Balaka Police Station contrary to Section 153 (1) of the Police Act.

Nyasa Times understands police will make more arrests on the audio clips matter.

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has since written President Mutharika to clear his name on the matter.

In a letter addressed to Mutharika dated February 27  2019, copied to the Chief Justice, Speaker of the National assembly and the Inspector General of Police, HRDC says there has been a lukewarm reaction to the killings of persons with albinism which gives credence to suggestions that the State was involved in the killings.

Governance and rights activist Makhumbo Munthali told Nyasa Times that the audio clips circulation on social media are “serious allegations”

Why dont they arrest the prophet from Lilongwe who challenged that he knows the killers , they are government and DPP,they are giving a sacrifice to win election. He said this on Sunday 17th of February, botanic garden,Lilongwe. No one is arresting him and dare to arrest him,he will even mention the names of people, boma lidzakhala maliseche.

Kalindo has simply lost the plot. He will not be able to campaign. He is a goner.

HRDC, mind your stance. How do you ascertain your assumption that dwells on an unclaimed audio clip? Are you well defended legally?

Surely the so called Tumbuka HRDC will face the music. Kaduka sikabwino.

Please, the music should not be similar to the one Rwandans faced in April 1994. I see that you have targeted them. The tone of your language tells it all! Please, do not punish them. Talk to them. Negotiate. Mediate. Reconcile. Compromise …

Please, Mr. Bon Kalindo. Focus on your attempt to retain your constituency. Your desire to fight politicians from several fronts will not be in the interests of those who look upon you as the breadwinner. Politics in Malawi is a very dirty game more in particular when they are forces that want to liquidate you for good. Please, for the sake of your spouse, children and constituents, think twice. You may have valid opinion but the political terrain is not good. Carpenters often hit hard a nail that sticks out on flat wood.

I know Bon Kalindo. Its by chance that he was elected in the Position of the MP. The idiot has dozens of house rentals in Machinjri that he is failing to honour. Kubwera ku Sportsman kuthawanso ndi Bill ya Fanta mmodzi for 400mk.
This will haunt him for ever.

How can the President clear himself without taking in those who are mentioning his name in a clip & others into book? I believe Winiko has all evidence on the same and he must share the same in court of law as a witness.
