Police say the arrest of political activist, Bon Kalindo Friday afternoon relates to his interview on the closed Rainbow Television in December 2021.
Among others, Kalindo claimed he knew people behind the careless attacks, abductions and killings of persons with albinism in the country.
The Lilongwe Senior Resident Magistrate Court charged him with uttering false information likely to cause fear and alarm to the public.
He was later released on bail. But National Police spokesperson, Peter Kalaya says Kalindo last honoured his bail conditions in April this year.
Kalindo was supposed to be reporting to National Police Headquarters every fortnight.
Kalaya says Kalindo, who is leader of Malawi First, a grouping of concerned citizens, will appear in court Monday next week.
For the past weeks, the outspoken Kalindo has been leading protests pushing for the resignation of President Lazarus Chakwera over his alleged failure to manage state affairs.
But Information Minister Moses Kunkuyu argued Chakwera would not leave office; saying he knows what Malawians are going through and that he is doing something about it.
Kalindo once led protests against killings of persons with albinism on the country.
