Kalindo attacks Livingstonia Synod General Secretary

Date:

Former United Transformation Movement (UTM) National Youth Director Bon Kalindo has attacked General Secretary (GS) for the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia for speaking against holding of demonstrations in the country.

General Secretary of the Synod, Reverend William Tembo together with some religious group in the country held a media briefing in Mzuzu denouncing the Friday demonstrations against rising cost of living in the country.

Tembo said that the Church recognizes right to demonstration but current protests have been characterized with violence hence their disapproval.

Reacting to the claims, Kalindo, popularly known as Winiko said the synod has made such remarks because it is under the arms of government as evidenced by recent events where government bought a car to be used by the synod’s general secretary.

“As a Church, it is unfortunate that they are against this noble cause. If they want war, we will do it. We cannot sit when people are suffering.

“So, you have religious leaders who are complaining because we are speaking on behalf of those suffering? We will not stop,” said Kalindo.

Kalindo went further by apologizing to Malawians for urging them to vote for Tonse Alliance of President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.

“I also want to apologize again to Malawians for campaigning for the current government,” said Kalindo.

Kalindo has further taken a swipe at the Malawi Police for allegedly being trigger happy during ‘peaceful’ protests where they ‘recklessly’ use teargas to disperse protesters.
