Chilima accompanied by his wife Mary and some UTM party officials and sympathizers arrived at the prison early Sunday morning to cheer up Kalindo who was arrested on Thursday afternoon for insulting President Peter Mutharika.

“He is here to offer support to Kalindo and assure him that UTM is behind him and will not be intimidated by politically motivated arrests,” said one of his aides.

Chilima and other human rights organizations have condemned the arrest of Kalindo which emanated from songs that he was singing at Balaka Police Station after two of Chilima aides Joshua Valera and kushi Unyolo were arrested for ‘acting auspiciously’ at a cultural function attended by President Mutharika last week.

Kalindo, the Mulanje South legislator, was arrested Thursday and charged with disorderly conduct contrary to Section 153 (1) of the Police Act as well as insulting the President contrary to Section 4 of the Protected Flags, Emblems and Names Act.

Eastern Region chief resident magistrate Mzondi Mvula is expected on Monday  to deliver his ruling on a bail application by Kalindo.

This is an opportunity for you Bon Kalindo to campaign and sell the UTM vision to inmates at the prison. Prisoners are allowed to vote, aren’t they?

In the second photo from the top, Chilima’s stance at the top Police officer exudes arrogance, no humility or anything close. As usual, Chilima thinks he’s the Bwana wherever he is; but now he’s met his match in the justice system. And, Kalindo needs more time to cool his heels (in jail); and he should keep practicing his gigs while he’s there, because he’ll need them when he loses the election in a few months. There is absolutely no way he can win in Mulanje. (Kikiki Ditto for Akweni Kaliati – people around Nkando have written her off!) Wa Policeyo… Read more »
