Malawi Revenue Authority dismisses vehicle dumping claims

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has rubbished reports in social media platforms that some of its vehicles, which were taken by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) operatives, were being dumped.

MRA Head of Corporate Affairs, Steven Kapoloma

MRA spokesperson Steve Kapoloma said an internal audit showed that all vehicles were on its fleet or with assigned officers.

“No vehicle is missing. After we heard of the reports, we immediately instituted an investigation and we have found that the reports are not true,” he said.

He said each and every vehicle at the revenue collection body has been accounted for.

There have been reports in various social media platforms of government vehicles being dumped, including those of MRA as former ruling party officials feared prosecution.

In some instances, there were even photographs.

“As far as we are concerned, there is no missing vehicle at MRA,” said Kapoloma.

President Lazarus Chakwera estimates that the plunder of the public resources by the DPP staggers at around K1.3 trillion.

Mr Kapoloma just know that paying taxes is a painful exercise when you know that the taxes paid will not help the common Malawians. Telling have baked claims is even more painful just stop this nonsense. Malawians have suffered enough under the DPP government.

All the vehicles that were dumped by the DPP cadets have been accounted for because they were reclaimed by MRA.

The assignment by govt now should be: All vehicles that were being used by the DPP cadets should be regarded as having been hired out. All the cadets should pay car hire rental charges for the duration of the period that the vehicles were in their hands.

Don’t cheat pple. How should we believe you. You are the one who was saying the president is entitled to clear goods duty free, before even you checked what was being cleared. We have lost trust in you. An independent auditor must audit your asset register

We should read between the lines. They guy is saying as far as they are concerned there is no missing vehicle. This does not necessarily mean that there is no missing vehicle. I personally know two prominent people, one of which is a prominet law expert, who reported finding a car near their houses which were then taken by the police. Kapoloma is just afraid that Chakwera and Chilima will whip them hard for perpetuating abuse of office.

It is sad that somebody thinks he was borne more intelligent than all Malawians. He should indeed have come out immediately the vehicles were in social media[having been dumped.

Bvuto ndi limeneli; a DPP amaganiza kuti a Malawi alibe nzeru ndiye angawauze ndowe zilizonse.
