Hope in Action Podcast is a new initiative by AfricaBrief, aimed at highlighting the positive efforts of individuals and groups in addressing challenges in Malawi. The podcast will be based on the principles of solutions journalism, focusing on solutions and best practices, rather than just problems and challenges.
Episode details

In our special report this week, Winston Mwale tells the story of how Malawi has been losing out millions of dollars because of a poor taxation framework and lack of bargaining power with international investors, especially in the extractive industry.

However, as Winston explains in this report, after years of Babel-like talk on the extractive industry, a new common language is slowly emerging with plans to reform the extractive industry.

Will these reforms materialize?
