Recently Mulanje South Member of Parliament Bon Kalindo organized nude demonstrations in the capital Lilongwe over the sharp rise in albino killings in the country.

Kalindo wanted government to effect death sentence on perpetrators on albino killers, saying the act is in human.

But the demonstrations did not please the DPP government, saying Kalindo was doing that to tarnish the good emerge of the Party.

The Party went further to summon Kalindo to a disciplinary hearing where he was asked to appologise to the Party but he refused and later he resigned from his position as Deputy Spokesperson.
