My name is Bon Kalindo, better known as WINIKO.
I am a comedian, teacher and social rights activist. Most importantly, I am a Malawian who loves my country.
I am supporting ONE’s You Choose campaign which encourages my fellow Malawians to participate in the next level of Millennium Development Goals by simply sending an SMS message. We are inviting views and suggestions from Malawians on what we want the next goals for eradicating poverty to be.
You’ll hear me on radio requesting that all Malawians make their voice heard and their views on poverty count.
Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to shape our destiny. Let’s join hands in making poverty history. To do that, we must tell the world what our problems in Malawi are and how we want them to be tackled.
I am a comedian. I try to create humour around the issues I come across. But poverty is no fun.
Join me, my fellow local and international celebrities, the ONE organisation and their partners, in making our voices heard. Our input is critical in shaping the world’s anti-poverty goals beyond 2015.
If you are in Malawi, send your SMS message stating which issues are most important to you, to 57111. If you are anywhere else you can still take part on our You Choose page.
Let’s unite as ONE in the fight against poverty.
