By Vincent Gunde

Political activist Bon Elias Kalindo has condoled families of six individuals of Area 24 in Lilongwe who have died following a road accident at Nature Sanctuary when a vehicle in which they were traveling in loaded with relief maize from Bingu National Sports Stadium was involved in an accident.

Kalindo has described the death of these six individuals as very sad coming at a time many family households are sleeping with empty stomachs because their pockets cannot afford to cough out K5,000 for a pail of 5Litre maize.

Poor people are contributing money to hire vehicles carrying relief maize to their homes.

He said these individuals were coming from Bingu Stadium after receiving relief maize which government is distributing across the country lamenting that poor people are walking long distances to Bingu Stadium, Civo Stadium and Kanengo Police Station to receive a bag of relief maize each.

Speaking through an audio clip circulating in various social media platforms, Kalindo has claimed that this accident which has claimed lives of six people on the same spot could have been avoided if the government identified places within their localities to receive relief maize.

Kalindo said poor people are contributing money for transport to ferry the maize from the distribution centres to their respective homes advising the government to reduce distance beneficiaries are walking to distribution centres for them to sing a good song of the praising government.

“Being President of the poor people in Malawi, I am sudden by the untimely death of these six people, may all the families receive my heartfelt condolences for the loss,” he said.

Kalindo has reminded all political parties in Malawi that 50+1 majority win was put in place by the court pleading with the legal practitioners to visit, review and make amendments in time for each and every party to have their own torchbearer on the ballot.

He said a big lesson has been drawn from MCP-UTM Alliance where Dr. Saulosi Klaus Chilima is being taken as a useless person besides sponsoring the MCP through the ballot advising all of its members to vote for President Chakwera.

The activist has claimed that he was receiving many calls from the MCP on the Alliance formation while he was UTMs Director of Youth not knowing that the MCP had a hidden agenda to fool Dr. Chilima and use him as a ladder to advance their political position in government.

He has made it clear that Malawians are being taken for granted by the MCP led Tonse Alliance government observing that it has completely forgotten that without Dr. Chilima, President Chakwera would not have been in government today.
