The Zambia Revenue Authority has seized suspected base metals with traces of gold, palladium, nickel, manganese and precious stones weighing about 1.5 kilograms at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola.
The consignment was intercepted when ZRA Customs officers working with other security wings at the airport identified suspicious objects upon scanning the luggage of the passenger.
This prompted the officers to conduct a physical search in accordance with the law and it was discovered that there was consignment was concealed in the suitcase as medicine, tea-bags and a comb.
The officers further requested for customs declaration documents from the passenger but the accused failed to produce any mineral export permits thereby, contravening Section 48 of the Customs and Excise Act, of the Laws of Zambia.
Investigations have revealed that the arrested individual is the mastermind of this particular syndicate as it was further discovered that he also had some other precious stones in his custody.
This is according to a statement issued to the media by Zambia Revenue Authority Corporate Communications Manager Topsy Sikalinda.
What is its name that suspect? Just give it Corona virus and not waste time and money arguing in courts of law.

I think there’s a problem in the Immigration department of the Ministry of Home Affairs. People who should never be given authority to come into Zambia are being allowed. We are now paying the price.
