LILONGWE - Malawian activists are planning a mass protest for Wednesday after talks with the government on political reforms that could see the United States and Britain resume aid to the country became deadlocked.

Civil rights groups want President Bingu wa Mutharika to explain his personal wealth, address foreign exchange and fuel shortages and reconcile with Britain, which froze aid after a diplomatic spat.

"Government has not met any demand in our petition and all they want us to do is to call off the demonstrations," said Billy Mayaya on behalf of the rights' groups.

Officials from the ruling party and rights groups were trying to reach a compromise to avert a possible protest after demonstrations last month left 19 protesters dead.
