Kalindo’s Bail Ruling Shifted to Afternoon


Chief Resident Magistrate Court in Zomba has adjourned the bail hearing for Comedian and Activist Bon Kalindo to later in the day.
Kalindo who was arrested on Friday is accused of publishing a false statement contrary to Section 60 (1) of the Penal Code.
The court which is being presided over by Chief Resident Magistrate Austin Banda heard that whilst addressing a crowd gathered for demonstrations in Mangochi last Thursday, Kalindo published a false statement to the effect that former deputy Speaker, the late Clement Chiwaya, was killed at Parliament Building in Lilongwe.
The defense lawyer, Gilbert Khonyongwa, pleaded with the Court to grant Kalindo bail citing that he is not a flight risk as he is a businessman who trades in vehicles, entertainment industry as well as a family man with a wife and three children.
In objection, the State through Levison Mangani said Kalindo should not be granted bail saying there are possibilities that he may commit a similar offense as he still has the right to assemble and demonstrate.
There is a heavy security presence at the court.
