Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda says the Authority is currently above target in raising revenue for the country.

Mr. Chanda says the Authority has from January to October 2019 beaten the government target of 44-point One-two billion kwacha by 1-point 2 billion.

The ZRA Chief was speaking when he led employees in the 12-kilometer jogging at the Multi Facility Economic Zone in Lusaka.

Meanwhile, Mr. Chanda has expressed sadness over the increased number of youths the country keeps losing due to different health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

He says there is need for the country to promote the Keep Fit campaign to Foster development in the Nation.

    • ZRA has now resorted to harassing the few SM businesses that are struggling to survive because some irresponsible people have run the coffers dry.

      Bring money at all cost. Treat all SM bussinessmen as accountants. Fine them heavily for making lay-men mistakes. And don’t give a rats ass about them not affording school fees.

      “A listening government indeed”


    • It’s getting Boring ZRA Has always beat it’s targets yet we keep running deficits these days especially under the PF a clear sign of fiscal indiscipline by Chagwa and co.


    • Something seriously wrong with ZRA targets. They’re so ridiculously low that they are nothing to bost about.
      This Chimp Chanda has been boasting about beating targets over the last 2 to 3 years. It is clear that they are meaningless targets that even Muliokela can exceed them.
      Let us talk about the kerfuffle that Chanda wanted to bring that ended disastrously with the sacking of Mwanakatwe! This idyot should have been sacked too except he is like a cat with 7 lives and he living on the last one.


  1. This simply means the targets set were way too low. If information serves me correct the parastatal companies are failing to own up on their tax obligations, the mines are operating at half capacity and many businesses are no longer operating, people have lost jobs, contractors have stalled due to lack of payment etc. So if you say you are above target it simply means you are getting taxes from the overburdened few still in operations.


  2. Give more incentive to tax payers
    And scrap the penalties and widen
    Your tax base.If you are happy with
    Your tax collection plough back some in form of benefit to tax compliant customers.


  3. Bet the collection includes a lot of VAT that is supposed to be refunded. Anyway, I guess the key word is collection not Nett position. I’m also sure parastatals are not included when deciding what the target is…
