State Vice President Dr. Saulos Chilima who is also leader of United Transformation Movement (UTM) has demanded for the immediate released of Member of Parliament for Mulanje South Constituency Bon Kalindo.
Chilima made the remarks during a rally at Matenje School Ground in Salima North West Constituency.
In his speech Chilima expressed his concern of Kalindo’s arrest describing it as political.
“It’s unfortunate that I do not have a screen, I would have played you a clip where someone was insulting the President but was not arrested,” said Chilima.
Chilima said Kalindo did nothing wrong and he must be released by the law- enforcers.
Kalindo was arrested Thursday in Lilongwe for insulting President Peter Mutharika and displaying disorderly conduct at Balaka Police Station.
He appeared in court in Zomba on Friday but the court failed to make a ruling on his bail application and the legislator is still in police custody.
Kalindo is expected to appear again in court today.
