Kalindo testifies in inciting violence case

Defence team in a case in which activist Bon Kalindo is answering charges of inciting violence in Mangochi, has today paraded its first witness before  Mangochi Senior resident Magistrate Court.

The court found Kalindo with a case to answer  last month following  violence that erupted on 30 November last year, when the accused led  anti-government demonstrations in the district.

First to testify in defence today was the accused himself, Bon Kalindo.

He dismissed claims that on the material day, he forcefully pushed the main entrance gate to the district Council office in full command, a conduct believed to have fuelled the violent acts by his  followers.

As part of the testimony, the defence brought before the court a video clip allegedly depicting what transpired at the main entrance gate on the material day.

However during cross examination, the State  argued that the testimony lacks substance because the video clip did not show detailed account of events that led to the  violence.

Senior Resident Magistrate Muhammed Chande has since adjourned the matter to 30 May, 2024 when the defence is expected to parade its second witness.
