To the ppl with narrow frustrated idiotic minds and against mwenyez. Tell me how much tax do u pay? U do businesses very well in your areas and lie the authority you don’t qualify the threshold of 10m turnover in a year.

MRA has deliberately kept a blind eye over you guys… don’t make touch noise and don’t behave as a good citizen as you are only begging free monies in theft or kupempha which is a noum and tradition in Malawi to beg.

You are protected by authority so better keep your shit mouth shut.

Busy brains

@ Chefourpence, you are 100 % right! These Indians should pay full tax to the govt and complain latter. If our govt is struggling in getting monies is simply these crooked Indians. Just imagine one Mwenye invading K50 billion!! Or lets say only K5 billion. How many are indulging in this crooked ways? Don’t be fooled, all the Indians make night meetings conniving how to swindle govt in taxes. Have you wondered why they insist on speaking their foreign language in our land?

Busy brains
To be frank, I have no mercy with this kind of robbery. The aim behind keeping all that money was to change into dollars and externalise to India. In Blanytre, there is OG Issah at Maselema who handles millions of Kwachaz from his fellow Indians and give them dollars. Likewise, if I was the govt, I would close Victoria forex bureau for it is a hub of all calendastine money laundering activities of all the Mwenyez. When they are going abroad, this bureau is the one that do all the dirty games. Ndimamulira Bingu pa zimene anapanga potseka ma forex… Read more »

While I blame the so called thieves, but I remember some two or so months ago the President gave MPS vehicles amounting to over 500. You mean to say that not even one vehicle was given to Kasungu Police Station? This was the time when the IG, Kacham who has thrown in the towel was appointed. He pledged to curb all thieves but alas stealing and armed robbery were the order of the day during his last 3 months as number cop. PLEASE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT THE POLICE SERVICE SO THAT THEY CAN SERVE US BETTER.


as long as you are not providing the vehicle so that they should just be guarding you indians but rather for the whole community.

and am also surprised that you indians are complaining about thieves when you yourselves have stolen a lot of Malawians money through tax invasions. an example is that MK2,000,000 which was stolen, why keep all that amount in the house, i know you want to change it on the black market and send it Bombay


Ohhhhh dear we are paying millions to the MRA but thy dont show the money yyyyy???ask them
