Former Parliamentarian Bon Kalindo who resigned as UTM Youth Director and held anti-government demonstrations last Friday has met former President Bakili Muluzi’s son – Tulinje Muluzi on Saturday, asking for financial assistance as reports indicate that he is sailing in financial problems.
Kalindo, whose close associates reveal of his ‘impecunious state’, met Muluzi, a Liwonde Businessman yesterday.
While details of their meeting are unknown, Kalindo has defaulted on a K50 million loan obtained from the National Economic Empowerment Fund (NEEF) Limited. NEEF is a registered microfinance institution.
Kalindo’s demonstrators had placards that severely attacked Vice- President Saulosi Chilima, mocking him for 1 million jobs, free water connection, reduced passport fees, duty free week, among others.
Vice President Saulos Chilima, who has travelled to Dubai last week, leads UTM. The party is in an alliance with the Malawi Congress Party, which is led by President Lazarus Chakwera.
