Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has dismissed claims that Mulanje South Member of Parliament Bon Kalindo life is in danger.
Kalindo has claimed that he is living in hiding as he is being death threatened following his accusations that some unnamed politicians of being part of the albino hunters’ syndicate, hence the government failure to act decisively.
But DPP Secretary General Ecklen Kudontoni said Kalindo, who is also a comedian, is making wicked and callous the allegation of death threat to score cheap political points.
“Kalindo is not living in fear. No one has threatened his life. He cannot be attacked at all. He is doing all this just to attract attention,” said Kudontoni.
DPP secretary general said Malawians should get used to Kalindo as an attention seeker, a thespian and rubble-rouser.
Kudontoni—who denounced Kalindo in the presence of President Peter Mutharika, saying he is not part and parcel of the party for going ahead with the ‘naked’ demonstration — maintained that the legislature has broken ranks with DPP.
Kalindo said he has been living dangerously since he was chased from a DPP political rally President Peter Mutharika addressed at Limbuli in Mulanje on Saturday.
DPP has a history of abductions and killings.
Kalindo, who is also DPP deputy spokesman, insisted he remains in his position and party membership intact.
