President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has urged Malawians and the corporate organization to pay tax for the government to successfully run its operations.

Mutharika made the appeal during a public rally held in Balaka on Wednesday where thousands Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) followers gathered.

In his speech, Mutharika said Malawians now have to understand that donors are not ready to offer their budgetary support to the country.

“Let us all pay taxes to have some money to run the country. We are now on our own there is no one who is going to give us money” said Mutharika.

Donors suspended their 40 percent budgetary support to the country last year just after the news of the plundering of public funds at Capitol Hill dubbed Cashgate came to light.

The development forced the DPP government under President Mutharika to come up with a zero-aid budget.
