Mr Savior Mwambwa is the Executive Director of the Centre for Trade Policy and Development, he is known as Zambia’s Tax Justice campaigner and we have a great opportunity for you to hear all about the fantastic campaigning he is doing to stop mining companies like Glencore dodging their taxes in Zambia. Zambia contains rich copper deposits – a crucial revenue source that can support investment in basic services, like schools and hospitals. Mr Mwambwa has identified and says, “the mining companies are not contributing to the Zambia economy, because of the tax regime.” Through the CTPD’s campaigns, he has highlighted evidence of large scale tax dodging being perpetrated by FTSE 100 mining corporation Glencore subsidary company the Mopani Copper Mine. ActionAid estimates that the company’s dubious practices potentially cost the Zambian government up to £76 million a year in lost corporation tax - much more than Zambia receives in UK aid each year.
Mr Mwambwa Savior is putting pressure on the government to get tough on Mopani, and make sure they start paying their fair share.
