Malawians asked to make the UK pay

25

ActionAid, one of the international organisations operating in Malawi, has launched a petition for Malawians to demand social justice and fairness by calling on the UK Government to scrap off a treaty signed in 1955 between Britain and its colonial administrator, the British Governor of Nyasaland, Northern and Southern Rhodesia.

UK companies not paying paying tax in Malawi

The treaty is currently being used by UK companies operating in Malawi to avoid paying tax, a practice ActionAid says is degrading, out of date and hurting operation of public services aimed at addressing poverty.

“We’re calling on the UK Government to put the fight against poverty at the heart of its tax policy. It needs to renegotiate its treaty with Malawi, to make sure that UK companies pay their fair share of tax in the world’s poorest country…this is money that should be funding Malawi’s public services” reads part of the petition.

Malawians and British people can sign the petition demanding the UK to scrap off the colonial treaty that has made it impossible for Malawi to collect billions in revenue from the  UK companies.
