All is falling into place for the 23 June nude protest that will be led by comedian and Member of Parliament for Mulanje South Bon Winiko Kalindo that is meant at forcing Parliament to force President Peter Mutharika to be signing for the death of murderers of people with albinism.
The parade which has gotten a go-ahead from the Lilongwe City Council and the Police has gotten another boost with the news that Member of Parliament for Rumphi East Kamlepo Kalua will welcome the naked petitioners at Parliament.
However, it is not known if Kalua will welcome Winiko’s nude protest while in his birth suit as well but the indications are that he will be in his suit, not the birth suit of course.
Information that Malawi24 has indicates that Kamlepo who has been labelled controversial most of the times has agreed with the petitioners to act as a link between them and Parliament.
A social commentator Felix Unyolo said the appearance of Kamlepo adds more drama to the protest.
“In one angle, it is a good thing but on the other it is not a good thing. It is as if this whole episode is drama and comedy. The calibre of the MPs that are taking this thing seriously is really questionable. However, that it can finally bring the ruling side and the opposition in one place is a good thing,” he said.
Winiko is an MP on a DPP ticket while Kamlepo is for the opposition Peoples’ Party. The two MPs have also had personal differences in Parliament at some time.
