Zambian Breweries has commends Zambia Revenue Authority for its fight against smuggling in of alcohol

General News Zambian Breweries has commends Zambia Revenue Authority for its fight...

Zambian Breweries has commended the Zambia Revenue Authority for its spirited fight against smuggling of alcohol into the country.

Company Country Director Jose Moran says the brewing company is proud of the revenue collector for championing the war against the illegal movement of alcohol and other goods.

Mr Moran said his Company is delighted that ZRA has taken the bold step of clamping down on this illegal activity.

He said this is not an easy fight, but it is a praiseworthy move.

Mr Moran stressed that smuggling is detrimental to Zambia’s economic development and called for an end to such illegal act.

He said smuggling is not only illegal, but robs the country of the much needed revenue for economic development.

In a Euro Monitor report of 2018, it was revealed that tax revenue losses through the Illicit alcohol market, in Zambia increased from US$50 million in 2014 to US $145 million in 2018, the largest contributing factor being smuggling.

Mr Moran noted that Zambian Breweries stood together with ZRA in condemning smuggling in Zambia.

“Together with ZRA, we strongly denounce smuggling alcohol in and out of our country. Our dream, as the country’s largest brewer, is to see a better world; a smuggling-free Zambia,” he emphasised.

The country director also urged the revenue collection authority to continue fighting the illegal activity for the betterment of the country.

“Our country depends on you for timely revenue collection. Please continue doing what you do best and we shall all win this war against smuggling,” he said.

In the last week of July, 2020, the ZRA fought running battles with suspected smugglers at COMESA market in Lusaka after it intercepted a truck carrying smuggled alcohol.

Earlier in the month, the authority destroyed various illegally imported goods valued at more than K1 million at Chirundu One-Stop-Border-Post.

  1. Uniform monga ya ma inmates. I’ve always said ZB seriously needs competition. Bavarian Beer brewed with Zambian ingredients would be a great start up.. wait till I find investors.

  2. Awe those uniforms! even security guards have better uniforms that that. Zambia Revenue Authority but no authority showing in those uniforms or the headquarters building in lusaka. You can see the authority in employee houses and vehicles but not the public assets.

  3. I have to say ZRA has been doing a very commendable job lately. I will have to let his excellency know about such. One thing I don’t play around with like most zambian, is anything beer related. As weekend is here and following pf success in by elections, this weekend I am having a very stiff drink. You have been warned haha

  4. I agree about the uniforms. They are abhorrent in my personal views. However it’s not what you wear that matters but more your ability to do the job right. Cheers I will drink to that.

  5. I agree about the uniforms. They are abhorrent in my personal views. However it’s not what you wear that matters but more your ability to do the job right. Cheers I will drink to that. Right now I am sipping on yamazaki 12 year old whiskey.
