I won’t be stampeded on Chilima-for-presidency, says MP ‘Winiko’ Kalindo

Mulanje South legislator Bon Kalindo (DPP) says he will not be stampeded to stop pushing for the candidature of Vice-President Saulos Chilima as ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) torch bearer in the next year’s Tripartite elections.

Kalindo: They can even kill me but I am sticking with Saulos Klaus Chilima

Kalindo, widely known by his stage name Winiko, was reacting to a campaign by DPP gurus to remove him from the party and death threats he is receiving.

“I won’t be stampeded  because the people who marched and presented a petition to remove me  were seen being ferried to Chitakale on trucks, were led by DPP governor for Mulanje Urban, Saizi Muonekereni. The people who protested and presented the petition did not come from his constituency.”

He alleged they were ferried from Thyolo, Phalombe, Chiradzulu and the surrounding constituency, accusing DPP regional governor for the South Charles Mchacha of being behind the plot.

“I am answerable to my people and not those strangers. That is a sign of panic for the DPP and its leadership, the party does not know what it wants to do. They cannot prevent me from mobilising people to vote for Chilima in 2019.

“So, I am not shaken and those people let them do whatever they want, whether they want to kill me they are welcome and I am ready to die for Chilima,”said Kalindo.

Police has reportedly been patrolling residences of Kalindo and that of DPP director of women Patricia Kaliati at Nkando Trading Centre on Tuesday night following intelligence reports that some people had plans to set them on fire. Kaliati is also suspected of being pro-Chilima.

No need to start their own party if Mutharika is popular let them go to convention and face each other. Let the Chaponda’s and Chilima’s compete on equal footing. Level the field. Family parties belong to the museum


Empty tins trying to buy public attention. Zisudzo zanuzo ndiye zatikwana.

Maybe the name DPP is big deal. If Chilima is indeed the most preferred candidate he can start his own party and leave the party of grannies. But mr winiko reclaim your seat first for you to have value to anyone including Chilima. I think at your level you should be concerned with winning again rather than be indulged in this complicated game of supporting someone candidature. You have value when you are MP. This should go to Kaliati as well.


Am just surprised with the likes of kalindos, is it hard for you to just leave Dpp & start your own party with chilima as your prsident peacefully? So that maybe you can die for him there. Maybe he can also give you a good position in that party since you are ready to die for him. Maybe you can also have a clear picture of how many citizens are behind your idea for chilima. Nde chilima akazangobwela poyela kuti sakufuna u prsident mukumupasawo muzafela ndani?

Silica gell

Of all the people, Winiko campaigning for a torch bearer! Kkkkkkk

Watematema Mutu

This commonly mentioned regional governor is rebranding DPP into a party of terror while the President watches. This is pathetic!!! People seems to have easily forgotten that during Kamuzu people could not stop the hurricane of change despite threats to kill bishops!!!!! Waishosha chilimaism… this is unblockable hurricane smalani magombeza.
