Day of reckoning lurks for corrupt Malawi Revenue Authority officials

The new Tonse Alliance government that Malawians elected on 23rd June 2020 seems to have ignored the enormous corruption, abuse and colossal irregularities that have been the norm at tax bull, Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA).

MRA deputy director general Roza Mbilizi among those suspected in wrongful-enrichment

The newly appointed leading government  team of Zangazanga Chikhosi and Janet Banda at the Office of President and Cabinet (OPC) announced the immediate dissolution of 60  parastatal organisations.

But conspicuously missing on the OPC list is tax collector MRA which many have accused it of corruption, fraud and abuse of office.

Just a month ago the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) legally stopped the tax bull from employing 100 new tax collectors because of the flagging the soon to be MRA employees did not attend interviews.

Nyasa Times sources within MRA say to the surprise of many, no official in the new government has mentioned anything about the management and board of directors of MRA.

“There is tension here, we have started the new financial year with deafening silence as a good number of directors and senior managers have voluntary stopped reporting for duties for fear of being heckled or booed and embarrassed in the daily oversight and management of their office’s affairs,” the sources say.

During the campaign meetings of Tonse Alliance many officials and the vice president Saulos Chilima said he knows of abuses in at MRA and promised Malawians to announce the list of the fraudulent matters and all names involved and that others have links to the then president Peter Mutharika.

Vuto si anthu ogwila ntchito..vuto is what enables them to do whatever they do. If you are changing MRA and others looks at controls, policies and processes..and make sure that they are well adhered to.

Mvula yikagwa kuchuluka zoliralira. Seems everybody wants to work at MRA. MRA is left out bcoz it has a professional board headed by Dr Rex Harawa who is a seasoned and objective guy. Alibe zibwana Harawa.

bodza ili, mbava izi, plus mwano kwa anthu opita ku ma office awo. When you go there to ask or look for something, they always take everyone the same as somebodies, they dont even care about your requests those bustards, awapane amenewa, they always take themselves as anthu opambana zedi by working in those offices.

These people are thieves, and they need to be looked up in jail for life. Malawians’ money was abused for personal gain. I’m hoping Soalous Chilima will keep his words and lockup these thieves that have been terrorizing Malawians for the past 26 years. The MCP of Kamuzu Banda never tolerated corruption, and I will hope MCP, UTM and Tonse Alliance will inherit that philosophy. We don’t need the Young Pioneers and Cadets. These elements are terrorists, and they don’t do good for Malawi. For how long Malawians shall suffer under the terror of militias of every political party that… Read more »

And MERA too is missing!! What is going on here? These two institutions should have occupied the first two slots on that list. We also need to change the K2000 and K1000 notes with immediate effect. We do not need sacred cows. Please.

Mr Fiko, hold your anger towards Chakwera, he is the President of the Republic of Malawi, have you seen him bringing all the Minister? Chakwera is not there to punish people, this is what he has been saying, he doesn’t have power of punishing people rather he is going to empower institution that deals with all those called corruption,in this case the Police, now if you want him to be doing all things at once then, you have failed him. MRA is not bigger than Chakwera, by now you would have know this. Nyasatimes,this Fiko thing, is just a piece… Read more »

Guys even Saulosi Chilima himself is a crook remember he was a man who chaired reforms in Government for DDP and consequently we saw passport going at K90,000, Driving licenses prices went up and he initiate Form 2 Student not to write JCE Exams. I liken him to a certain animal whic is known as Kanyimbi, Kanyimbi amakumba wuna wa mbewa ndiye amaphwisirako mbewa zonse zimafa so Saulosi is a threat to MCP he is a cook

MRA is more important to Malawi than Chakwera. MRA inalipo Chakwera kulibe ndipo adzaisiya. Wankulu ndani pamenepa.
