MRA impounds Mphwiyo’s car

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA)  stormed the residence of former Malawi budget director Paul Mphwiyo  who was shot outside his home  at the time he was a whistle blower to the corruption “cashgate” scandal, a systematic looting of public money,  and impounded  his mercedenz benz.

Mphwiyp: MRA pounce on his cars

MRA officials confirmed the impounded  black Merc  GL 500 in it  its ongoing operation to crackdown on vehicles that were registered in its data base without clearing the due tax liabilities.

The tax body suspects Mphwiyo’s vehicle was not cleared for tax.

MRA said the crackdown is not targeted at Mphwiyo only but that they will cast the net wider.

A source in MRA, who did not want to be mentioned because of the sensitivity of the matter said most of the “high end” vehicles belong to the senior members of government, high profile politicians and businessmen.

Mphwiyo and his wife Thandizo were recently  arrested by the Anti-Corruption Bureau on charges of theft, money laundering and obstructing the course of justice.

To everybody’s surprise, the report into the 24 billion kwacha ($48 million) of missing funds, handed to the government on Sept. 25, has not mentioned Mphwiyo in anyway.

Malawians are beginning to wonder how and why the name that was central to cashgate has not featured in any way directly.

His lawyers are convinced the arrest was the work of some “cashgate shenanigans” who have infiltrated ACB to discredit Mphwiyo who is the key witness in the heist.

Our sources in ACB have revealed, on condition of anonymity, that a cashgate related camp that was at the core of Mphwiyo’s shooting are the ones spinning the shots to ensure that Mphwiyo is branded as a masterminder of cashgate and not as the person who should be the hero for exposing cashgate.

It is now believed that some compromised officers in ACB, under the influence of the mentioned cashgaters, are trying to connect the youthful Ivy League Graduate and technocrat to the infamous cashgate scandal in a bid to silence him.

Why r u targeting Mphwiyo? The guy has already been netted, the vehicle u have taken will be forfeited soon and I don’t expect that he will b foolish to pay tax(if he did not)on that vehicle, we know the guys who drive around in our cities in hot cars! Why don’t u impound the over 100 MANN tippers/water bowsers bought by the ZA MP for use on the construction of Changalume to 7miles in Zomba, the construction of the Zomba to Kachere road, the construction of the Bypass from Bunda Turn Off to Kaunda Mchinji Road Round About and… Read more »

MRA, MRA MRA, how many times have I said MRA. This is another useless body that is heavily politicized. When have they realized that Mphwiyo had not paid tax for his vehicle? So ho many more cars do you know and you are not doing the rightful thing? What are you waiting for, enawo amangidwenso kaye? Nanga akapanda kumangidwa what will happen? Yet the country need these tax.

I don’t understand these MRA guys! Where were they all this time just to resurrect now and claim the car need to be impounded? There are a lot Mwenyes out there who are driving those kind of vehicles. The problem with these MRA guys is that they target poor local Malawians. We can’t prosper in that way!! Very bad indeed!!!!!!!
