Today's edition of the Post Newspapers
Today’s edition of the Post Newspapers

The Post Newspapers has managed to print its edition for today, June 22nd 2016 despite the Zambia Revenue Authority shutting down its printing plant.

The newspapers with the headline ZRA turns Post off was available by 07 Hours in selected places in Lusaka although its distribution was limited.

There are fears that the ZRA will move in to confiscate the printed copies from vendors when they are distributed as the publication has been placed in distress and entails that all revenue generated by the newspapers should be recovered by ZRA.

Sources at the newspapers revealed that today’s edition was printed in Namibia through a commercial printer.

The Post Newspaper employs more than 1,500 workers.

ZRA officers yesterday raised the Post Newspaper Limited and closed down the publication.

The officers arrived at Post Newspapers head office and printing press around 17:00hours in the company of armed police, demanding that the company pays a total of K68 million in tax arrears immediately.

Post Newspapers general manager for finance Rowena Zulu explained that the money ZRA was demanding had already been paid almost in total.

But a ZRA officer responded that they had not yet accessed the money and thus they could not withdraw the warrant of distress.

The lawyers from Nchito and Nchito then produced a court order restraining the officers from issuing a warrant of distress on Post Newspapers, but the officers disobeyed the order. Instead, the ZRA officers chased all employees who were still working at the head office, before locking up the entrance.

At the printing plant, the ZRA officers also switched off the printing press, locked up the premises, leaving the heavily armed police officers in charge.

    • THE GREATEST POWER IN THE WORLD, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, TRIED TO SUPPRESSED A BUTTERFLY, IT FAILED. MUHAMMAD ALI CAME OUT STRONGER THAN HE WAS BEFOR BECAUSE WHAT BELIEVED IN. WHEN HE DIED EVEN THE GOVERNMENT THAT IMPRISONED HIM ADMITTED THAT ALI WAS THE GREATEST. ONE DAY ON THE ZAMBIAN SOIL A MONUMENT WILL BE ERECTED IN HONOUR OF FRED M’MEMBE AND THE POST. FRED REMAIN FOCUSED AND DETERMINED.

HE CALLED MWANAWASA AN *****. HE CALLED SOUTHERN PROVINCE A BANTU STAN. 365 DAYS FROM LAST YEAR, IT IS LUNGU THIS , LUNGU THAT. HE HAS DESTROYED ALL INSTITUTIONS IN ZAMBIA. HE DESTROYED THE CHURCH, LAZ, THE JUDICIARY AND EVERTHING. HE WANTS US TO START KILLING EACH OTHER. THIS MAN IS A BOMB WHO SHOUDN’T BE ANYWHERE NEAR THE CORRIDORS OF POWER. NEVER AGAIN ARE WE GOING TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT OF MMEMBE BY MMEMBE AND FOR MMEMBE.

  3. Freddy enjoys this game. He is not even heart broken as some of you may be thinking or rejoicing. He calls this temporal set back. He is deliberately allowing this to happen. He is enticing Lungu to cause problems for himself. I’m sure he has a printing plant somewhere in the sky. Otherwise where were those newspapers printed from in the streets toady. It is nice sometimes to be complicated like Freddy. I enjoy seeing the guy when there are big problems and I’m watching the how the game is being played.

    • Let reality hit him. He thinks he can afford to be printing from Namibia every day and in good time to circulate. It is not possible. Companies which have evaded tax have been reported badly by his newspaper and yet him is worse. What goes around comes around.

  4. Mr Fred Mmembe, Just Pay. No one is above the law. Even Criminals employ people. Whether the Post Newspapers employ 1 500 people or not , let them follow the law of the Land and just pay what is due to Government. It is the revenue the govt collects which goes to service delivery and payment of public workers. Meanwhile we await the conclusion of the DBZ issue. The money is meant to be used for the development of Zambia. Not to be kept in Mmembe’s pockets.

  6. Toni Montana This is not about law. These are juts politics. Olo muli ba cadre sure. Be reasonable for once. We have followed events and the post has been paying taxes. Tell me if Richard Sakala’s newspapers or Harry Kalaba’s newspapers have paid all their tax obligation. We work or have relatives and friends in ZRA. Please do not fool us. We know what is going on. You are just disturbed that the Post hasn’t been closed paka napa voting day.

  7. Tax has to be paid by everyone, the Post is a very big company to be running away from tax. Those of you that are supporting the Post are wrong, employees are paying tax and small companies are paying tax. No company should be an exemption, unless you are saying that you don’t pay pay tax yourselves then you can support the Post.

    • We are not supporting non payment of taxes but rule of law has to be honored. The courts ruled but then officers from ZRA under LUNGU’s instruction have broken the agreement to fix the post.

    • We are against the selective application of justice!!

      I’ve seen it for myself – some parastatals owe ZRA and NAPSA millions of Kwacha and the Government is silent on this. Have they not also collected taxes on behalf of the ZRA and not remitted them to the Authority? Are they not also under the same obligations to pay?

      What is good for the goose should also be good for the gander.

    • Apparently it has nothing to do with press freedom! It is just compliance with the law. Would you really be happy if companies never paid their tax obligations? Ask yourself questions before you start supporting anybody! I only hope this will be extended to all the defaulting companies. It is a good start. Membe champions fight against corruption which makes it a good starting point. Membe himself knows that ECL is right on this one.

  12. Chisala M You are just disturbed that the Post is on the streets. This is political no matter how you try to coat it with tax this or tax that. This newspaper pays tax. If you want to be objective go to ZRA and find out how much taxes they have been paying. They may not have paid everything but for sure they have been paying taxes. Our government is just making its self unpopular and may pay a high price for this. Lungu has been a president only for a year but the Post has been in this game of fighting governments for a long time. Let him just find other better things that will make him retain power.

  16. Let HH and his minions bailout their friend including loud mouthed MISA Chairperson Helen Mwale …The Post called the late President Fredrick Chiluba a thief and yet they are big thieves stealing even PAYE deducted from their employee’s salaries… And that useless corrupt Judge who wanted to stop the noble cause by the ZRA officials of maximising tax collection should be identified and should not get his/her salary this month-end and security should be withdrawn, it is gratifying that the ZRA Officials ignored that compromised Judge…

    • This is another flip flop thinking from the PF govt. You cannot close such a company when its election time especially Zambia is experiencing hardships in the economy. People lost jobs and the govt is causing more people to lose jobs. To me i will say BAD TIMING and when they lose these elections that will be the end of the party

Now the repercussion will cause him to lose becoz he has wrong advisers like you.

    • @Mary, For your own information Fred Mmembe has been stealing from the same employees by not remitting PAYE to the Tax Man BUT pocketing everything for his personal agendas…Whether President Lungu loses or not that’s none of my business but I can tell you that President Lungu will win the elections because he speaks the truth and does not want to shield anyone breaking the law… Already HH has lost because of siding with Mmembe…

  25. Mmembe and his Post should just pay the tax and stop playing monkey tricks……even in developed countries tax evasion is a serious crime. Do not blame Lungu for your management failure. Pay the tax for govt to use the same for developmental programmes.
    How special are you to be exempted from paying tax ? Let your HH sell some animals and bail you out so that you continue insulting innocent people day in and day out……on August 11th,we shall show you that the people of Zambia are greater than the Post and you can not change our minds with your propaganda.

    Given the two devils, I would rather vote for the one who drinks beer because I do too since it is not criminal……but will not vote for a free mason because I am a Christian. Why do you portray wrong people specialized in GBV as messiahs and innocent people, you paint them black ? Are you one of them ?

  27. In all honest, there are very few companies operating in the current economic climate are upto date with Tax remittances due to cash flow problems (has the government paid the VAT refund in full to mining companies?) (Even most of the PAYE deducted from your pays sometimes does not go on time), ask ZRA, they will confirm that. What we seem to miss is the statement from the finance Manager, that almost all taxes have been paid. If you have ever dealt with ZRA officers with scores to settle, they will ignore even receipts issued by themselves. From previous reports, most of the amounts are from penalties on late payments and not the principle and these are generated automatically and their system is still in a messy since its upgrade, it needs manual recons.

    • But it is political! Kambwili stated publicly that he will close the Post. Edgar has stated publicly that he would close the Post. There are other companies that owe a lot more than the Post.
      The normal way to get overdue tax is to agree a payment plan with the defaulting company. This happens all the time. Why the rush to close down a Zambian company employing over 1,500 Zambian families?

Never a fan of Mmembe after I realised who he really is but shutting down the Newspaper isn’t the solution. Why couldn’t they obtain the money they deposit in their bank accounts? This is definitely a political decision made by a frightened dictator.

    In the streets today vendors had a rude shock because many people were not buying the government controlled news. So they were running from vehicle to vehicle and people were just staring at them. Apart from the political staff on the first page which PF does not like, making them send ZRA in panic mood, the paper has quality international news and education materials.

  33. People are mistaken to think that this is a tax issue. It is a political rather than a tax problem. Even if the Post was to pay all the outstanding taxes to ZRA the paper will stil remain closed becoz it is considered a mouth piece for the opposition parties. The idea is to close out the opposition and hope that the Ruling PF wins the elections. ZRA cannot close a business without a court order. Its in ZRA’s interest to get the company to commit to a tax payment plan. If the Post is liquidated there is not much that ZRA can gain becoz the Post Assets are far less than the tax liability.

  34. People that are supporting the Post are all wicked, Tax is Tax; no two ways about it! In other countries Mmembe would have been in Court and Jail consequently, stop thinking like toddlers. The Government needs resources including finances from collection of Tax which Post Newspaper has not been complying to because of wanting to be treated differently. Fairness has been done by ZRA.

  35. First things first. Mmembe must pay his taxes then we can talk about press freedom. If Mmembe pays and then we see harrassment of the Post, I will be the first one to fight for the press freedom.
    If the Post has been overcharged they should still pay while their lawyers engage ZRA. Zambeef disputed a tax claim by ZRA but they paid and then went to court. It reported a few weeks ago that Zambeef won the case and ZRA has since refunded them K13million. Now that is a good corporate citizen, unlike the crooks at Post/Mmembe and his olleagues who still owe zambians K14billion DBZ money.

Cadres have become more powerful than state functionaries. Partly Fred should blame his friend Wynter Kabimba who employed cadres in all institution including RTSA and NAPSA.

Who doesn’t know that the Times of Zambia and Zambia Daily Mail ows ZRA colossal sums of money in unpaid taxes. Who is persueing TOZ or Daily Mail to settle unpaid taxes? Even the mines are in arrears in terms of taxes. Yes I may not like Membe but I can’t agree with application of selective justice. Whether you are PF, UPND, MMD, UNIP, FDD, RAINBOW, ZADECO or Muliokela, you should be treated the same. Remember even the mature democracies of this world at on time in history practiced segregation bur later on they discovered that it can never work.
