The infighting which rocked public tax collector, Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) between director general Ralph Kamoto and deputy Roza Mbilizi has ended with Mbilizi the winner in her bid to oust Kamoto and she is now acting director general.
Earlier, Nyasa Times reported that Tom Makina has been pencilled in to take over as head of MRA but his appointment awaits confirmation.
Meanwhile, Mbilizi who is very close ally for First Lady Getrude Mutharika will be acting.
Before becoming deputy director, Mbilizi was MRA director of policy planning.
The tax collector is embroiled in many tax evasions scams by many businesspersons mostly Malawians of Asian descent. And Mbilizi is also soiled in some cases.
With the donors zipping their aid purse, the DPP led administration will largely rely on MRA for prudent and maximum revenue collection to run the economy, which is already facing difficulties.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
