Court blocks Malawi Revenue Authority on sale of houses

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) deputy commissioner general Roza Mbilizi and some officers connected to the Democratic Progressive Party ( DPP) offered each other institutional houses to buy at K30 million each but the High Court has issued an order stopping the  public tax collector  to sale the institutional houses they are occupying.

Kapoloma: Confirms court injunction has been served to MRA

The injunction was obtained by MRA  employees workers union and was ganted by High Court judge Charles Mkandwire.

Nyasa Times reported on February 26 2020 that Mbilizi  and MRA director of finance Sam Zuze agreed to share the houses with officers connected to DPP.

There was no independent valuation of the properties.

Some employees of MRA  claimed to court that the public tax-collector through a letter dated  February 26 2020 informed its 35 employees staying in the institutional houses in the cities of Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu that it intended to sell 27 institutional houses.

The letter asked the employees to allow people seeking to buy the houses to view them but the workers argued that they were not consulted on why the decision was undertaken.

MRA director of corporate affairs Steven Kapoloma confirmed the institution has been served  with a court injunction.

I hate this habit of Selling institutional houses, we sell things when we have new ones or we are leaving with hopes of not returning. I therefore dont think we are leaving Malawi any time soon, do we?..Tikaba ndalamazo tizingomanga zathu not sharing what other after you would use..

Even those MRA officers who are complaining are also very crooked and corrupt themselves. Check the entire MRA and see who among them is clean and you will be shocked!!! How do you explain an officer who earns less than MK300,000.00 per month managing to build a 60 million Kwacha house within a few years on top of driving a vehicle if not vehicles worth millions and millions of Kwachas? Those corrupt souls are the ones killing this nation… probe them and allow Malawi to develop genuinely and not these selfish individuals.

The Judge in question should not judge these people only but arrest them. There are many corrupt people at MRA and even the officers they normally send to our offices are too corrupt. The Mwenyes use the black SME audit firms to heavily MRA. Could MRA be cleaned up immediately please.
