Kalndo To Spend Another Night In Police Cell

By Robert Edward, LILONGWE

Political rights activist-cum-comedian, Bon Kalindo will add a fourth night in police cell as Senior Resident Magistrate Wanangwa Nyirenda in Lilongwe has reserved his ruling on the defense arguments until Tuesday this week.

Through his lawyer, Stanley Chirwa, Kalindo argued his warrant of arrest and its execution were unprocedural to criminal procedure and evidence code.

On the other hand, Police Prosecutor Cecelia Zangazanga told the court that the accused last reported to police on 28th April this year.

This, she argued, is contrary to dictates of his bail conditions of reporting to police headquarters every two weeks.

Police nabbed Kalindo last Friday for breaching the bail conditions in a case he is accused of publishing false news likely to cause fear and public alarm.

In an interview with the now defunct Rainbow Television in 2021, Kalindo alleged having knowledge of people behind attacks and killings of persons with albinism but could not disclose them.

His arrest took place at the court premises when he was answering another charge in relationship to illegal connection of electricity to a house he was staying in Area 25 in the capital city.

He was driven to Mtakataka Police in Dedza; a thing that angered some rights activists including Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Kondwani Nankhumwa who asked the law enforcers to stop treating suspects as prisoners already.

Kalindo, who has recently become a frequent police customer, has been leading protests pushing for the resignation of President Lazarus Chakwera for allegedly failing to manage state affairs.

But the peaceful protests have seen unknown thugs suspected to be connected to the governing Malawi Congress Party disrupting them with the party officials feigning ignorance on the matter.
