    • The dude has been dumped after being used by Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Don’t try this at home or at school because these guys (politicians) are politically trained to use and dump people. Ask Chiluba what he did to Sata after using the latter for the third term campaign

    • This should be no
      Excitement in illegality.

      The actual pressing is sitting at home in HH.

      If anything the the man is appointing in the form of rewards instead of ability.

      Thanks

    • Kasaka @1.6 and [email protected] To start with i’m well aware of uncle Chikwanda’s retirement, the point i was trying to put forward which i know you missed is the fact that Mr. Msiska was not working alone he was working with Hon. Chikwanda and one other person who i wish can be removed. From your reaction, i believe you will miss even this one.

    • Watch the drama unfold. ZRA will squeeze companies to pay all types of funny taxes so that Lungu and his minions can maintain their spending habits (first example is $15m spent on his inauguration!). Next, companies will close because they will not afford the taxes or to pass on the costs to customers. Unemployment will jump while bakaponya will be singing “just pay, boma ni boma”. Remember how the Post died? More will follow. Well done, Chakolwa and ZRA!

    • @Buck Teeth Lungu: Man, you really LOVE TO YAP. Nearly every thread that pops up you are on it spewing rubbish. Do you realize this year (2016) being an election year and inauguration being a Constitutionally mandated State/Govt invent the monies spent on this event were budgeted for earlier in the year?

      Whether your little god HH, Nawakwi, Sinkamba, extra, won these elections this expenditure was still going to happen. Even your LOSER, HH, wouldn’t have spent a single Ngwee of his own money either. Do you understand this simple fact!? Bwatu, bwatu, bwatu, like a POSSESSED SCHIZOPHRENIC MUPPET!

      Man, you really need to take a break from blogging so you can quietly NURSE your bruised EGO in private. Maybe then will have something sensible out of your orifice. Gosh!

  1. Am sure zra is agog.

    Here is the story. Patrick Chiumya picked Berlin from pep stores. He struggled in Direct Taxes and due to insecurity fired many. When LPM became boss, Xavier Chungu got Msiska to be CG and that was when the likes of Chriticles Mwansa, Harrison Banda and Commissioner Finance saw the back of zra. One of the victims was Kingsley Chanda then Deputy Commissioner Customs. LPM fired Msiska and recalled Mwansa to head zra. Then RB made Mwansa PS with view of future VP. RB tumbled in 2011. And then came in ABC who reappointed Berlin as CG taking over from Wisdom…lol. Now it’s done. Kingsley is back and perhaps one more!

  5. Useless organization harassing marketeers & Japanese-car buyers at borders but fail to tax the big copper mines. Copper goes out, the money doesn’t come back.

    Switzerland is one of the largest exporters of copper. Zambia is losing up to 67% of their export revenue as a result of misinvoicing. GDP should be twice the current if these mines were correctly taxed. Of Zambia’s total copper exports to China, underinvoicing amounted to $5.6 billion, or 61 per cent, representing 10 per cent
    of Zambia’s total copper exports over the 1995?2014 period. Copper exports to Switzerland are NOT recorded in Switzerland at all.

  6. The copper marked as exported to Switzerland yet it never arrives in Switzerland.

    Excluding Switzerland, Zambia recorded systematic export underinvoicing starting in 2005, with a cumulative $12 billion in export underinvoicing over the 1995?2014 period.

    $2 billion of copper is exported to ITALY which is underinvoiced compared to only $16
    million of exports reported in Zambia’s data.

    $3.9 billion was exported to S/Korea & underinvoiced yet only $358 million of declared as exports.

    Most of the copper exports to these countries are not recorded in Zambia’s official statistics.

    But a dull ZRA & GOVT officials starting with a corrupt PRESIDENT that have no capacity or will to negotiate a fair deal for the masses wallowing in abject poverty.

  7. Maloza you seem to have so much important information about our mining operations. What do you suggest should be done to correct the mess? The problem with most bloggers is that you only end at condemning without suggesting possible solutions to the problems

    • @ Mpundu E. Chishala
      Solution is mentioned in my post

      “But a dull ZRA & GOVT officials starting with a corrupt PRESIDENT that have no capacity or will to negotiate a fair deal for the masses wallowing in abject poverty”. ZRA does not have the capacity to give an accurate bill of how much tax is due to them”.

      Tax evation is a huge crime everywhere in the world. Even the founder of Glencore, Marc Rich, was wanted man for one of the biggest tax fraud cases in USA. It took Bill Clinton to pardon him after he made substantial donations to the Clinton Foundation.

      increases it’s operating costs between that allow it to minimize its stated profits and lower its tax bill. At the same time they sell their copper to their own subsidiaries in Switzerland at a low price…

    • @Mpundu. Do you think what Maloza is claiming is true. I tell you it is not.
      Clinton foundation was only formed way after Clinton left power to Bush in 2000. Only a siiting president could forgive Glecore boss not a departed presdent.
      Secondly, where is he getting those export figures. From the figures he has presented, it means that Zambia between 1994 to 2014 lost USD23bi. For Country with a GDP27bi, this means 85% of GDP was stolen. This not true. Maybe it wrong interpreattion of data.

  8. @15 Chile, agreed. They must follow the freak wherever he has hidden the revenues of the Past news. Someone revive the Zambia Airways, National Airports and DBZ loans too. The freak must account for hus nkongoles. I see that the Past news is dying a painful death. At the rate of current production and sales of the Past I wonder whether the freak can even afford fuel for his car. And if the Past died? Well, I for one would not drop a tear, serves the freak right!

HH is clever conning even the clever diaspora bloggers that votes were stolen. When, where and how? And were your agents sleeping? I have never understood. HH and his people claimed to be everywhere Inc State house but failed to stop people stealing their votes. Ukulambwaza

    • Do you even understand your new Constitution? This is the problem with UPND cadres. Whether ECL left office today (by what means), the VP (Inonge M. Wina) automatically takes over the reigns of power. You still have to wait for 2021 for a shot at the Presidency. Ati NEW ELECTIONS SOON, ubufontini!

      The years of praying for someone’s death (like you did for M.C. Sata) so you can take another stab at the Presidency before the appointed time are long gone. You cried for a new Constitution and the new Constitution has delivered. READ IT, STUDY IT, and UNDERSTAND its implications, you dunderheads!

  11. Can someone knowledgeable please explain to me how the Vice President Bo Inonge will be the head of Government business in the house (Parliament); Has the President nominated her as an MP? Meaning he has nominated 9 rather than 8 MPs? Or she doesn’t need to be an MP to sit in Parliament? Or she is the 157th MP who happens to be unelected and unnominated? Thanks, confused moma

    • I believe the article said “President Lungu has appointed the Vice-President as Leader of Government Business pursuant to Article 74 (1) of the Constitution of Zambia.” So its by the powers vested in him as President.

ON THE OTHER HAND, UPND HAVE EVERY REASON TO CRY & INSTEAD OF MOCKING THEM, LET US UNDERSTAND & SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM. THEY WERE DENIED JUSTICE (PETER IN THE BIBLE AT ONE TIME SAID TO THE BEGGAR, SILVER NOR GOD, I DO NOT HAVE, BUT IN THE NAME OF JESUS, STAND UP & WALK)- IF WE CAN NOT GIVE JUSTICE COZ WE ‘DO NOT HAVE IT ANYWAY” THEN LET US GIVE THEM WHAT WE HAVE.

  16. There are many water melon farms in this government who are there to frustrate development.President Lungu should quickly kolopa the water melons at PS and Directorship levels first for things to move or else Upnd influence will jeopardize govt operations.The problem we have is that shu shus are not giving correct information.

    Procrastination will sabotage the well intended programs and projects.Most of these guys were funding the opposition and they are bitter that Lungu is back.

  17. Its unfair to throw mud at Kingsley Chanda before he even settles in his new office. There was nothing wrong for Chanda to run a clearing firm and consultancy firm to help businessmen of whatever color and shape to claim their refunds from ZRA because he knew how the system works. Did you expect him to sell salaula or dry fish at Soweto Market or timber at Buseko Market? He was in private life and needed to survive like any other person with an instinct to jump on any business opportunity. Lets not bring in petty jealous and start weighing down the man with PHD’s from day one. Even Berlin did his best according to the best of his abilities and when there is change of leadership, this trickles down from the top most floor to the foundation. The cancer that most us the elite suffer from is…

Let us give him a benefit of doubt, at least he has the understanding of the operations of ZRA, he has managed to keep his company- Clearing agent afloat. Why can’t you take that as a positive and be assured that he is the best man for the job, let us remove this hurting mentality
