Kalindo to answer president insult charge – State

Chief resident magistrate (CRM) Mzondi Mvula in Zomba who discontinued hearing UTM director of youth Bon Kalindo’s case of insulting the President contrary to Section 4 of the Protected Flags, Emblems and Names Act now wants the legislator to answer the charge after the prosecution said they will be interested to continue with the case.

Kalindo: Insult case reinstated

State resolved to discontinue with the case and continue with the one on disorderly conduct at Balaka Police Station contrary to Section 153 (1) of the Police Act which led  to court to discontinue the insult case.

However, the prosecution wants to reinstate the presidential insult case.

Kalindo, a Mulanje South legislator, was arrested on January 10 and granted court bail on January 14 as he was charged with the two cited cases allegedly committed on January 6 this year.

He pleaded not guilty.

The MCP government was wrong to detain all those that insulted Kamuzu by defacing his portrait or burning his cloth? MCP is vindicated here?

Is this corrupt magistrate still working? It seems he has a personal vendetta against kalindo. Why include a case that was dropped? Justice will also find you magistrate. God has his ways.

All because of Chimulirenji’s nuisance which has rattled the DPP. Go ahead and try the case, if guilty he will pay the useless fine.

Whatever the case against Kalindo, freedom of speech is more important than insulting the President. Many of the comments on this website involve insults of the President. So what? Long live freedom of speech!

Yes, the case must be taken to its conclusion so that lessons can be learnt whether insulting the president should be allowed in this country.

True, because the learned judge needs to tell Malawians what constituents “insulting the president”. The whole thing is shambolic, right? Mutharika mutu siukugwira, how is that an insult? We wil get to the Supreme Court on this one

Just like Mutharika has a case of treason which was discontinued after he became the president. This man must explain how he smuggled the body of his dead brother to South Africa in the name of Daniel Phiri
