Court grants Kalindo bail

The Magistrates Court in Lilongwe has granted bail to activist Bon Kalindo.

Kalindo was arrested on 2 April 2024 on allegations that he published false newsvthrough a WhatsApp voice note likely to cause panic to the public.

Giving the bail ruling, Principal Resident Magistrate Rodrick Michongwe said the accused must appear at a police station every fortnight, should surrender the gadgets involved for investigation, should surrender a copy of his National Identity card to court and police for easy tracking, adding that the bail can be revoked if any of the conditions are not met.

Kalindo will, however, remain in custody as he has a pending ruling this afternoon in another case where he is accused of acquiring a firearm without permit.
