Police take UTM’s Kalindo to Zomba: MP charged of ‘insulting the president’

Malawi Police on Thursday  evening took UTM director of youth Bon Kalindo to Zomba after the law enforcers barred party supporters from holding a vigil at Area 30, the police headquarters in Lilongwe.

Kalindo: Under arrest on charges of insulting President Mutharika

Police were elusive on the matter but UTM spokesperson Joseph Chidanti Malunga confirmed that Kalindo is now in Zomba awaiting appearance in court.

“He has been taken to Zomba. Our legal team have confirmed this. The police say Honourable Kalindo allegedly committed the crime in Balaka and he would be tried in Zomba,” said Malunga.

The Mulanje west legislator has since been charged with disorderly conduct at a police station and insulting the president.

Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said Kalindo, a veteran actor has been charged with disorderly conduct at a police station contrary to section 153 (1) of the police Act as well as insulting the head of state which violates Section 4 of the Protected Flag, Emblems and Names Act.

According to one of the video clips circulating in social media, Kalindo led the chants Mutharika wapenga misala [Mutharika is demented].

But Chidanti Malunga described the arrest as politically motivated aimed at silencing the ever popular Saulos Chilima and his UTM.

The arrest is not political. Hon. Kalindo just happened to have violated the Laws of the Land. Hon. Kalindo, should have known better, as a Parliamentarian.

So, no tears for Hon. Kalindo.

Pathetic… thats why serious pipo do not comment here… it appears macadet ndi mbuli zopanda nzeru comment zinthu zopusa. You impersonate innocent people. This is a forum for frustrated persons. Now, in all fairness masiku ano simasiku omamanga anthu panthani zopusa ngati zimenezo… kulankhula! really? And Mutharika Ziboda is such a good man, how can he let that to happen… ndiye kuti simukudziwa kuti even if Winiko is charged or prosecuted or killed, you are only making him a hero from zero. Nkhondo akuiputayi Mutharika ungochepetsera masiku a moyo wache… alomwe anzakewa akulimbana nawowa ndi abale ake…. ammaliza!
