Bon Kalindo’s Blantyre Anti-Chakwera demos flopped: Co-organizers arrested, released

Bon Kalindo
Say No to amnesty in Malawi

By Vincent Gunde

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Dozens of police officers that were deployed to cover Blantyre demos dubbed to be the Mother of all demonstrations spoiled in what could have been the peaceful demos by arresting the co-organizers of the demos soon after arriving at Midima Roundabout in Limbe.

The demonstrations were planned to start from Midima Magistrate Court to Blantyre, Mount Soche Hotel off Masauko Chipembere Highway to the Blantyre Civic offices to present their petition as done with other demos in Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Mangochi.

The demos which have changed its tone to ‘’Say No to amnesty in Malawi ‘’ would have been patronized by Malawians who have travelled from countries such as Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa to be with their brothers and sisters in the streets.

Lead organizer of the demos, Bon Kalindo aka Winiko was caught coincidentally with a summon when he was to appear at the Lilongwe Magistrate Court for a new case open against him by the Attorney General, Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda of issuing threats.

But, Kalindo said he did not appear before the Magistrate court in Lilongwe on charges of intimidating the Attorney General arguing that he was not served with a summon claiming that the summon was served to his lawyer, Gilbert Khonyongwa who is representing him in other cases.
