More heads to roll at MRA -Kamoto

The tension and uneasiness among workers at Malawi’s tax collecting body have reached unprecedented levels, Nyasa Times understands.

The situation has reached such level because of the fury from commissioner general Ralph Kamoto who is harassing officers and their bosses by promising to wipe out all staff and hire people of his choice.

At every opportunity, the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) chief is said to be directly threatening officers with suspensions and dismissals for issues best dealt with supervisors.

“He has thrown etiquette to the dogs because he even dresses down managers and directors in the presence of junior workers,” said one of the sources.

The sources say at many meetings Kamoto is showing characteristics of lack of leadership and a sadist by saying he will do more than terrorize MRA, in reference to Nyasa Times’ earlier report.

He is reported to have thrown his latest tantrum at a tax college in Blantyre by blasting staff and threatening to offload all directors, commissioners and their deputies to have his own circle of senior and junior managers.

Already Kamoto has single-handedly fired estates manager Clement Kamuangala, management accountant Majora Nsomba, HR director Alice Konyani policy director Josephy Milner, procurement director Magda Mambiya, finance director David Loga, senior station managers, customs commissioner Agnes Katsonga, tax investigations director Henry Ngutwa and more.

Many workers join others in suspension reducing Malawi’s capacity to collect more tax and nervousness has overwhelmed the tax collector and those still on duty.

In 2013 excess tax collection reached K22 billion and K48 billion in 2014 by the same workers that are going through management harassment but now ministry of finance says K150 billion is yet to be collected by June 2015.

Some economic analysts have suggested intervention at MRA from ministry of finance so that it fully supports the planned K900 billion national budget come 2016.
