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.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
