Vice President Inonge Wina.
Vice President Inonge Wina.

Vice President, Inonge Wina has urged Zambians to promote the interest of the nation instead of taking pleasure in scandalizing the country to the international community.

The Vice President also said that it was sad that even some Members of Parliament are claiming that there is no freedom of the press in the country.

Ms Wina said the establishment of private electronic and print media institutions is testimony that government is committed to promoting media freedom.

The Vice President said people should not use the closure of the one newspaper company, which failed to follow the law, to claim that there is no media freedom in the country.

Ms Wina was speaking in parliament on Friday , in response to a question from Kabompo Member of Parliament, Ambrose Lufuma, during the Vice President’s question time.

On 21 June 2016, the Zambia Revenue Authority closed The Post Newspaper Limited, demanding that the company pay a total of K68 million (US$6.1 million) disputed tax arrears immediately.

According to MISA Zambia, there is evidence to suggest that The Post is not the only media house that has tax problems in Zambia and this clearly shows that the closure of The Post is a political move that is beyond tax issues, as alleged.

    • As long as others in the same trade, who are guilty of the same offence, have not been prosecuted in demand of payment of equally long outstanding tax obligations, the close of the Post will forever remain attributed to suppression of press freedom.

    • The things that power does to simple minds…………Mama Inonge, who doesn’t know that this issue is not about taxes, because if it were, Daily Mail and others would be receiving the same treatment. Please stop insulting our intelligence and trying to blackmail us by using the name of Zambia to justify your wrongs.
      Take some responsibility and acknowledge the uneven or unbalanced application of the law by PF government. If you did this you would retain some semblance of integrity when the sh!t finally hits the fan. Lies have short legs and the truth will sooner or later catch up with you.

      what about Times of Zambia, Daily mail and other pro-PF media that have not paid taxes? Could you not have not got into some payment arrangement. Zambia and PF will be scandalized because of your lack of judgment.

    • Mrs Wina, how many entities must you destroy before Zambians can cry foul? I thought Zambia was a Christian nation whose Bible teaches that even the saving of one single soul would attract jubilation in Heaven? What about the parable of the one lost sheep in a hundred of them – what happened when it was recovered?

      Mrs Wina, Save Our Souls? Realy, how many persons must PF destroy before Zambians react?

      You know what, you are better not stealing to avoid trouble.

      The idea of saying:
      ‘why am i being prosecuted as if I am the only thief’,
      has not helped many people and I don’t think M’membe will be helped by that philosophy.

      You kill a person and then you say,
      ‘why am I jailed, the only one who kills?’

      So, let M’membe not evade tax and the say,
      ‘I am not the only evader’

      Look, in many countries especially the Western countries tax evasion is a criminal offence, and you both pay the dues and still go to jail for the crime.

      M’membe should be grateful that the system is only talking about recovery of money and not criminal prosecution.

    • In developed countries she will be in an old people;s home, she is too old and she is being used by Lungu. Every normal human being knows that the post closure is political because you can not close a company and expect it to pay tax arrears, The law i know tells me that you allow the company to operate but take control of their fiances, It like expecting to get milk from a dead cow.

    • How do shallow minds compare Times and Daily Mail to the Post. The 2 are GRZ papers that may owe money to itself. And the two papers do not have unpaid loans with DBZ, Invest Trust, National Airports and many other such as Napsa and suppliers in all over the world. One cannot collect PATE, NAPSA & VAT and pocket it. Only shallow minded people can support such a crook.

    • Poor at facts. Chagwa promised that he will make sure that the post will pay all the money it owed in taxes during the 2015 campaigns. That is why I voted for him. The Post had become like a parastatal company getting unnecessary tax relief but still failing to submit even what it collected on behalf of government. There was no secret that the Post was going to be followed after Mwanawasa and sata.

  5. It pains me so much to see old people who suppose yo be source of wisdom always lieing with a straight face. Bo Inonge must live for the truth now, politics must be behind at her age. There are so many companies owing ZRA in taxes. The simplest way the Post tax case must be handled is by drawing a payment plan. As it is now the recovery of these taxes in this style is more expensive than the benefits that shall be drawn.

      In a “western country” various RB’s; Mutati’s; Zulu’s and Lungu’s will be serving JAIL sentences for theft and corruption.
      Or did you want to say “…Zambia follow legal principles as our new Colonial power from the EAST, which jail or kidnap any opposing voice…”

      Please appropriation “Law of totalitarianism” to the rightful recipients without justifying criminality with not existing “legal precedent”.

      If you want to make comparison with “western democracies”, why not considering how many UK MP have been prosecuted and convicted for fake “Expense Claims” Vs. Zambian (PF) Ministers bluntly refusing to pay back STOLEN money as directed by Constitutional Court?

      Please, do some research before crapping in public.

  7. Well if there are those others, they cooperate with the law to come up with an amicable solution with the relevant authorities. Not the arrogance of the Post, sorry I mean former Post, which has been in debt forever, not willing to pay, and trying to buy presidents in a bid to evade tax. That is the big difference. Mention an organisation which has behaved (sorry, I mean misbehaved) like the former Post and has survived the law.

    If the Mwinelubemba was to write an article about hh, the highlights would probably state as a fact that the reason why his UPND lost the elections so painfully was purely because of his gullible and misguided association with a Post and a Mmembe that had lost so much trust and had become so discredited among the voters. Otherwise by Zambian standards the economy was in such a bad state that even a frog could have beaten PF. BUT instead,…

The Constitution failed because it failed to pass the 50 + 1 threshold of registered voters. Be objective when making comment.

      If they use referendum results Lungu will be far ahead of HH.

      Is that what you want, maybe you know better about HH’s results in some parts if Zambia.

      More than 60 percent voted for the bill and only less than 40 percent voted against. The only issue was on turn out not meeting the 50 percent + 1 of the eligible voters, which in the case of presidential elections does not apply.

      I see you post everywhere and always, yet it is hard for anyone to remember anything you say. Now I know why.

      I advise you to talk with facts, talk about what you know not just because someone us willing to listen.

    • Do not speak for things that you do not fully understand. Every large company is subject to a ZRA review. Usually, companies in the bracket of the Post do not get tax audits but a ‘witchhunt’ was constituted and they assessed penalties. These penalties were challenged by the Post with help of professionals, but ZRA (strong-armed) was adamant and did not listed to the Post which is rare because there are companies that owe K700m or more as a result of these audits but pay just a fraction maybe K8m after challenging. The Post was not given a fair due process and that is where PF victimized Mmembe. ZRA’s job is not to close companies but to collect revenues, that is PACRA’s job. Maybe your eyes are open now?

  9. Otherwise by Zambian standards the economy was in such a bad state that even a frog could have beaten PF. BUT instead, everything that Mmembe wrote in his Post and everything that HH did or said during the campaigns was a direct contradiction of what we knew and expected of them. You could see that HH was losing ground so fast everyday in important areas like the Copperbelt that if the elections were held just two weeks later he would probably have come out with 30% or less. Ask Elisha Matambo the CB Chairperson of the UPNDonkeys why he was so frustrated that he landed himself in Kamfinsa. He probably would reveal privately that ba HH messed himself up with campaign lies and association with the morally stinking Mmembe, and NOT rigging.

  10. Ask Elisha Matambo the CB Chairperson of the UPNDonkeys why he was so frustrated that he landed himself in Kamfinsa. He probably would reveal privately that ba HH messed himself up with campaign lies and association with the morally stinking Mmembe, and NOT rigging. Rigging was a story that had already been created by hh to cover his face in the event of a loss. The “evidence” that hh hoped to gather for his “petition” did not materialise either as Matambo and Mwaliteta impounded and searched ECZ truck after truck only to find lamps. And after delaying the delivery of certain materials himself, hh truns round and calks it evidence! Come on UPNDonkeys, give us a break!

One of the lawyers has corrected me that it was not the job of the lawyers to find evidence, HH was supposed to find and provide evidence which the kawyers could turn into a string legal presentation to Concourt. We all know know now that HH simply instructed his lawyers to launch a petition while his liuetenants searched for non existenf “evidence”. Meantime hh is so stupi.d that he expected the the Concourt to suspend the operations of the whole country until his “petition” was “heard”. The ultimate UPNDonkey indeed!

Stop putting daily and times in the same bed with post coz they are both up to date with zra currently.

  13. Fellow Zambians

    Despite of the political differences we have in Zambia. We lack the culture of learning and gaining from negative feedback.

    Negative feedback should not be the message of creating fights. At times let’s put the negative feedback on the open table and break the shell, thereafter let’s do qualitative and quantitative analysis of that given negative feedback. Some negative feedback might make us grow and improve tremendously.

    For example, a negative feedback/criticism might reach you through your enemy of politics. Sleep on it and analyze ot with a critical mind. Think of the message contents not the writer or publisher.

The Tax excuse they have on the post is just a pretext to silence the truth about their corrupt dealings! It is actually her government that has tarnished Zambia’s image internationally.

    Can she explain to us why our taxes are so high. I was shocked to learn how much taxes we are made to pay just to fly locally: the citizen fare now costs K1,500 from K1,300 from Lusaka to Solwezi. Four taxes are charged just to fly out of Lusaka. You have what they call JI tax = K95, H2 tax = K50, QJ tax = K30 and RM tax = K50. Total fare now from Lusaka to Solwezi one way = K1,725! Outrageous! This is fare for one way…

If the press was muzzled in Zambia would we have so many private electronic & other media? The test can’t be that public media is let off on tax without proof. The test is whether private media is allowed to operate. Some papers selling on the streets now are full of hate speech but haven’t been shut down. There is no need to scandalise our country for nothing. God Bless Zambia

  18. Inonge, you can deceive those Zambian that do not understand the mechanisms of ZRA income tax law. Indeed these assessments are done by ZRA and companies are allowed to engage professionals to respond and challenge the claims. Most of these assessments also ignore various tax incentives that companies are owed by the same ZRA. There are companies in Zambia that owe 10 times more that the Post did but they are allowed to challenge and then a settlement is reached with a payment plan. ZRA did not afford the Post a fair process and indeed, the case of the Post was unique and that is where Mmembe was victimized. But let me tell you how this will end. Indeed governments will change and the government will be sued by Mmembe, Mmembe will win and the tax payer will make him a rich man. Mark my…

    • What receipt when all you need is to be alive to know that M’membe has been defrauding institutions from DBZ, ZISC, NAC, and ZRA among many others.

      Even a child knows that fact. You have to lower yourself so low, below the level of a one-day old child even to manage to pretend that you don’t know.

      Even if one loves to pride themselves in ignorance, this one will be too much.

      The man needs to pay the tax and all other debts, and then claim he is being victimized – I will support him if government continues to follow him assuming there are no other understandable criminalities.

    • The manner in which the Post closure has been handled is NOT correct. I agree with you. IN the the next few years, with the change of government, Mmembe will sue the government of the Republic of Zambia and claim 100 billion kwacha for destroying his businesses. He will win the case. The taxpayer, unfortunately, will foot the bill.

And she thinks people are so stu pid that they should just take her word for it as if she is some kind of miracle salesperson of which kind Edgar seems to be surrounded with… Type “Amen” and reality will step aside!

  29. No Inonge Wina is a treacherous woman who has put Zambians in this situation by supporting Lungu. She can even sell the nephew for silver. Mama you are a disappointment to most female Zambians who are looking up to you. How come it is only PF Government who are suppressing the independent media those who point out your wrong doings especially corruption?

  30. What happened at the post is oppression of the worSt kind. Even a kid can see that there was political pressure on ZRA. The disputed tax could have been handled in a more civilized manner. The fear that is there is that in case PF loses elections, the post will bring out the truth and some people enjoying now will end up in jail. So the way out is to use all means possible to kill this newspaper company. However, this is not a solution to thieves in power. They will actually pay for their sins when the time is right.

She seems to have her own version of who the Zambians are and what the ‘Zambians’ want. I have serious doubts about her qualifications/competency for the job she holds.

  35. ZRA should never use Liquidation as a method of collecting tax.It must agree to a payment plan and enforce the Payment Agreement instead of closing the business with negative effects on jobs, tax, violation of a Right to information etc. The closure of the Post is politically motivated. Why is the Post targeted? Lungu and his mentor RB wanted the Post closed for political gain. Agogo Wina must know that if u murder somebody u are called a Murderer and if u murder many people u are a mass murderer. The govt has “murdered” the Post. The illegitimate Lungu govt has not only closed the Post to silence the Press it has closed several radio and TV Stations especially after the 2016 Elections were stolen by Lungu. Like all dictators Lungu has shown the traits of a dictator by muzzling the…

  36. This MUSHOTA…whether has scattered brain, always reacting the opposite direction even when the argument is clear… Aaah who ever it is has a problem even how to put his/her life support programs in order.
    Look at issues positively not just for the sake of blind support.
