A lesson has to be learnt that there is no one above the law. Bon Kalindo who has been hitting the streets organizing demonstrations forgetting he was jumping bail for crimes committed.
Malawi Police Service (MPS) detectives on Friday, September 15, 2023, arrested Mr Kalindo for his failure to honour bail conditions in a case of publication of false news likely to cause fear and alarm to the public (Court
Case Number 1447/21).
This follows a warrant of arrest issued by the Lilongwe Senior Resident Magistrate (SRM) Court which MPS obtained. The same court charged and
released him on bail with conditions for uttering information likely to cause fear
and alam to the public on Rainbow Television on December 20, 2021.
He claimed to have knowledge of people behind the killings of persons with albinism but could not mention their names when asked to do so.
Among the conditions for his court bail was that he should be reporting to National Police Headquarters every fortnight.
National Police Public Relations Officer Peter Kalaya says , Kalindo last honoured this bail condition on April 26, 2023. He will appear in court on Monday, September 18, 2023.
What it means he will be spending his weekend in police cell. Kalindo has been organizing demonstrations against Chakwera’s Government though the President has already addressed the issues being demonstrated for.
