What about foreign companies, especially multinationals operating in our country and exploiting our natural resources?

Should they not pay more by way of taxes to ease our debt levels? Scrutinise their books carefully going back at least 20 years to eliminate accounting malpractices such as over and under-invoicing, tax evasion and avoidance. Apply the law firmly to any offenders. Let us equip our revenue collection agencies to be vigilant and ensure that companies fulfill their tax obligations fully and on time.

We must remove all tax holidays for foreign companies - they do not need this incentive to operate in our country. We need the tax revenue more than they do.

We must also sign agreements in the best interests of our country, and not give away our wealth to foreign companies.
