Kapoloma: MRA robbed of vital information

The Authority has been probing three Malawians of Asian origin for allegedly evading tax amounting to over K50 billion.

“We just noticed this morning that the computers are missing; one of them contained final report of the probe MRA has conducting in line with Abdul Karim Batatawala’s tax evasion allegations.

“At the moment, the authorities have asked for CCTV footages in an attempt to trace the people believed to have stolen these gadgets. Karim is using his better financial muscle to corrupt and beat tax collection system by ‘planting’ his boys within the Authority,” alleged the source privy to the incident.

In November last year, MRA in conjunction with the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), through the Chief Resident Magistrate Court in Blantyre, issued three warrants of arrests for the three suspects.

Three suspects, Abdul Karim Batatawala of Lido Enterprises, Aslam Batatawala and Mahomed Amin Batatawala were being hunted to answer tax evasion charges.

Karim Batatawala was wanted to answer charges on five counts namely, “knowingly concealing and suppressing sales information with a view of fraudlently evade Value Added Tax (VAT) contrary to Section 49(1) of the VAT Act Cap. 42:02 of the Laws of Malawi; Knowingly omitting from a statement made to the officer of the Malawi Revenue Authority without which the statement is misleading in any material particular contrary to Section 47(1) as read with Section 47 (2)(a) of the VAT Act Cap. 42:02 of the Laws of Malawi and; falsification of and willfully using a falsified document required under the VAT Act Cap. 42:02 of the Laws of Malawi.

He also faces charges on intent to defraud, preparing and maintaining or causing the preparation and maintenance of false books, accounts and tax returns and falsifying or causing to the falsification of such books, accounts and tax returns contrary Section 11 (4) (c) of the Taxation Act Cap. 41:01 of the Laws of Malawi; and omitting from a return of income with intent to defraud an amount which should have been included therein contrary to Section 112 (3)(b) as read with 112(4)(a) of the Taxation Act Cap. 41:01 of the Laws of Malawi.

Similarly, Aslam Batatawala face charges on five counts. He was suspected to have swindled government of over K15 billion in taxes.

Likewise, the third suspect, Mahomed Amin Batatawala was suspected to evaded over K5 billion.

When called to find out more on the matter, MRA Deputy Director of Corporate Affairs, Steve Kapoloma could neither deny of confirm.

Investigations are underway to get hold of behind the syndicate,  according to inside sources.

  1. Ufiti eti says:

    Do you want to tell us that you don’t make backups for your data. If the computer crashes, how will you recover your information? Shame on you.

  2. Uhuru says:

    This is typical of Malawian Authority Bodies. They hit Malawians of Malawi origin and our businesses hard. They leave rich foreign originated businesses free, as they themselves accept huge bribes from them. This is a nation of Cashgate. A rotten system, Oh, a Ngwazi Kamuzu Banda, mdaferanji?

  3. NKHWETA KAMZUMI says:

    this is 2015,we have cloud computing and MRA is a huge organisation,dont tell me they werent using such systems

  4. Abale samalani says:

    A Max Mlomba mulipo ndi cream yanu ya IT?

  5. What happened to security?
    It seems the whole country is plagued by Corruption. No institution can be trusted!

  6. sindi says:

    Number 91 you are very right. Full of DPPs. And we hear from inside sources that MRA conducted fake interviews for Director of Finance and instead of picking the first three successful guys, they have handpicked the fourth because of his DPP roots and some connection with Getrude. So you think such calibers will not be used to siphon more funds from MRA to DPP and BEAM Trust? MRA is surely sinking and stinking.

  7. kachikho says:

    This is a clear case of a staged robbery . You mean if a computer containing a final report is missing they can not rewrite the report? It is likely that MRA lied to the Authorities that so much was going to be collected but failed to prove their allegations and as a cover up decided to stage a robbery . Msonkho house is well secured ,one has to have pass code to open the doors of the offices

  8. Bob says:

    Malawi is a stinking nation. What will happen next is no action. Ndalama kumangosowa chonchi. No political will agalu inu. Rubbish.

  9. Israel2013 says:

    Negligence! Negligence! nothing else. Any back copies? If no, then it is negligence nothing else.

  10. Giffy says:

    Mamaneeeee!!!! All that money?? Guys, what is this?

  11. GONANI says:

    Inu a MRA muipezeretu information yimeneyi before it’s too late. Apo bi mufakidwa mambama wosaneneka mwamva! In every move that you make you find yourselves infiltrated by dirt, how? From now on wards -we don’t want to hear that nonsense. Clean that house!

  12. Mfwethu says:

    I think Parliament should summon MRA CEO and Directors to a serious meeting of negligence, including the guards who were on duty on such a material day. Who were the last members of staff to leave the premises? This is a simple matter we dont even need the police to investigate it to capture the culprits. This is money that can help the Govt with their zero aid budget, these Mbatata brothers should not be left free, they have to pay every dime that they owe the Govt.

  13. benn says:

    That’s the Dpp Govt, they have got sorts of stories when it comes to monies

  14. Mphwache says:

    Atleast 15 people had that report on their machines, about 10 people had hard copies of that report. You mean to tell me that the report has disappeared due to the theft of those computers? I also can bet you that that report will soon appear in a Malawian online newspaper very soon, so all efforts to steal the computers are futile.

  15. YOHANE MBATIZI says:

    Do not tell me you did not save this info on other flash disks or hard drives. Or else you MRA are surely part of the team. Do not tell us this nonsense. Misokhoyitu inu ikuwawa.Can we have parliament to help us sort this issue.

  16. Mugonapamhanya says:

    This is not adding up. You mean the whole MRA did not have backup files somewhere else? This is an organized crime. Wina ndi uja amati amubera all court files at Crossroads in Lilongwe. Malawi is indeed a sinking ship.

  17. Such equations are easy to solve.MRA is full of DPP people so any mess there is nobodys but DPPs.If those that were put by previous governments were still there blame would go to them but lucky enough we have their people at MRA.So what are they saying now?

  18. King Zude says:

    MRA don’t full malawians,don’t you have a backup which you keep of site???mukutiona ngati tidakali anthu opusa eti??any organization with sensible staff needs to have a back up which is kept outside the office compound,useless and headless chickens.

  19. twttete says:

    they dont have servers somewhere else ? they store their information on desktop computers ? what is this nonsense?

  20. Wise one from the East says:

    If tax evasions alone are exceeding MK 50 Billion, one tends to wonder how much revenues these merciless gurus are milking from our land!!!!!!!!???!

  21. Wise one from the East says:

    If the total value of tax evaded exceeds MK 50 Billion, one tends to wonder how much revenues these merciless gurus are making from our land!!!???!!1

  22. dzina langa says:

    Malawi will still remain as it is because of selfish individuals. how can unknown people gain access to the computer room with all those security personnel. tikunamizanapo apa. I cry for my people in phalombe that have been promised a hospital I cry for my people in Mbalachanda who were promised a good road I cry for people in Chapananga who will never see an escalator in their life time because of a few Malawians.

  23. Mo says:

    The only country where they put info like that in a desktop computer…ever heard of servers??? Pathetic

  24. Israel Difense Force says:

    Unless this is surbotage from within otherwise to those of us who are competent with modern available backup technologies, this is not an issue. Zomati laptop yabedwa munthu mkumadandaula kuti mayooooo…… ine information yanga yapita zikadalipobe In this 21 century when we have cloud computing,????

  25. bodole says:

    Highly classified information stolen, then those who are in IT department of MRA must be mentally retarded. A big institution like that one don’t have special servers?…….but here is a thought, where were security guards during that night of robbery?……..if anything this is an inside job……bunch of wankers!!!!!……soon justice will prevail…..knock on wood……

  26. Ngongoliwa says:

    DO NOT BE AMUSED, THIS IS THE WORK OF DPP. THEY REMOVED ALL DEDICATED AND TRUST WORTHY MEMBERS AT THE ORGANISATION AND REPLACED THEM WITH CROOKS AND HERE WE ARE. NANGA POMALIZA ZAKA 5 TIYEMBEKEZERE ZOTANI KU MRA INU ANANKHUMWA?

  27. Maximum Prison says:

    Every computer has a back up. If that computer did not have a back up, then the whole IT department is involved. A back up is a copy of the original where it all information is kept. In Institutions like MRA and some sensitive Institutions, backups are kept under lock and key to some extent it is recommended to keep it at any commercial banks for safe keeping. So do not fool us that the information has been lost! Big brother is watching you!

  28. YOLANDA says:

    so Kamoto was right to threaten these robbers.kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  29. Kenneth leonnard says:

    Malawi will not develop because we are stupiet. How come the MRA Did not have a system of backup nowing that they are dealing with sensetive issues. Or are you telling me that they dont know how to do it. If so who employed those an qualified stupiet. We are not kids this guys are part of this nosense even what we call cash gate. Apa chilipo munthu aliyense afune njira yotengela ndalama mmaofesi ambona.

  30. bwani says:

    I hope they are toxic computers. Malawi for sale come on Asians best buy Malawian idiots kkkkkkk

  31. kabunduli says:

    Paliponse masiku ano pamakhala ma backups, i hope zonse zilipo. Amathyola azilonda ali kuti? ndi inside job imeneyo kutitola a Malawi.

  32. mzangandiwe says:

    Kodi a Malawi tidzazindikila liti? do you know these activities are making our country to be poorer and poorer? Why backing amwenye kuleka abale anufe?

    Amangidwe amwenye onsewa chifukwa lamulo likutero asatitole ayi ife kwawo tingathawe kukhoma msonkho zoona? Poor malawians, timadabwa ma clerks kuvuta kwambiri komanso kumanga nyumba zomwe zisali za msinkhu wawo.

    Koma ife tikapanga order ka vits sikutilonda kwake mxi mxi mxi

    Thats why ndimalira kwambiri when i remember kamuzu, samanyengelela akunjawa ayi Pamenepa siinakwane 24 hours?

    And should know malawi is NOT a joke!!!

  36. neymar says:

    Our country gone to the dogs

  37. Jojo says:

    I work in a well established organisation just that MRA is bigger. But for that organization as big as MRA is, surely all files must be saved on the server and not on the computer. This means anyone can log on any machine and all find their save files. Secondly an organization of the magnitude of MRA MUST BACK UP their data everyday and store it away from Msonkho House. That is how organisations must store their electronic files. So if the computers were stolen because of some investigation the investigated akanalemba mmadzi.

  38. Chief says:

    That’s dpp for you. mafias.ana a njoka.

    ARE THE COMPUTERS STAND ALONE OR THEY ARE ON THE NETWORK? LAN (LOCAL AREA NETWORK) OR WAN (WIDE AREA NETWORK)? WHAT ABOUT SERVER? WITH THE MONEY MRA COLLECT IT CAN AFORD REDANDUNT SERVERS. CHIEF IT OFFICER NEED TO BE ARRESTED FIRST AND THEN ALL THE MANAGERS, BOSSES NEED TO BE LOCKED UP. THE PROBLEM IN MALAWI IS BAIL. THIS IS A HIGH CRIME. NO BAIL. ALIBE UFULU WA BAIL CHIFUKW ABELA ANTHU AKUMUDZI AMENE ALI OVUTIKA KWAMBILI. KU MACHINGA AZIMAYI AKUBELAKELA PA NTENGO. KOMA NDI ZOWONA????????????

  43. che kalanka says:

    What I know is that over 30% of my salary goes to an incompetent MRA inform of PAYE. 5 yrs ago, Staff members at the organisation I work for conspired with top management to evade PAYE tax. The arrangement was that only 50% of every employee’s salary would be shown on the payroll and that tax would be remitted to MRA on that basis. Only the two of us disagreed to that nonsense as we argued that the money that MRA gets is meant to improve public service delivery such as buying medical drugs etc. We were successful and those advocating for the evasion rescinded their illicit decision. So hearing that some people promote tax evasion makes me wonder if we’re really humans and have the welfare of other people at heart. Malawi is a sinking ship!!.

    Bodza limeneli mukunamiza ndani? This will not stop in Malawi because people are never held accountable for their foolishness.

  77. Robert Shaba says:

    The minimum one would expect is that such critical information should be kept on a computer with at least 3 levels of security: power-on password, hard drive password and operating system password. Operating system password can be be further combined with BIOMETRIC sensor if the laptop has Fingerprint Sensor. But even if all the above minimal securities were breached (which is really unlikely if BIOMETRIC security is included), one expects that secure encrypted data backup exists on a secure file server. You mean the whole MRA does not have secure data storage system for regular back and information is kept on laptops??? Simply put: you do not save critical data on a laptop that relies on an operating system login password. Data should have been securely backed up before end of business day!

  78. Malawiana says:

    Apparently you will discover that even the CCTV was off at that time. Typical of non patriotic MRA officials who always think about their pockets first above the national interests.

  79. Malipeya says:

    This is not a surprise at all. What does MRA means, Malawi Robbery Authority. They also have high tech thieves within their system. Whatever the case, no one who knows IT like myself can accept this. MRA use our hard earn tax and they needed to know the importance of having their information secured in servers across all their major offices. Computers could be lost but servers across their offices cannot be stolen all of them at once. The rotten government is also a having its ugly face in this structure.

We have politicians who dont love thier country, but just go into politics to enrich themselves and thats why they change parties like clothes. These amwenye connive with politicians to and bank these billions in foreign accounts. Its in Malawi where this happen….. Huge gorvement business contracts going to a few asian while indegenous Malawians are suffering. Letting asians evade billions of tax, but MRA squeez helpless cross border businesswomen.
