Revenue collection from cars at Mwami border falls


Aug 19, 2013, 9:59 AM

A ZAMBIA Revenue Authority examining officer at Mwami border post says revenue collection at the border for second-hand motor vehicles has in the last two years reduced because more vehicles were entering through Nakonde.

Speaking when Vice-President Dr Guy Scott and his entourage toured the border post on Sunday, Alex Chiwama said currently, the Mwami border was only collecting about K3.2 million on motor vehicle imports as compared to the K5 million it previously used to collect.


"We are given targets every month and we have been getting above the target. The only problem is that we depend more on used motor vehicles for our tax collection. But in the last two years, Nakonde border post has been getting the biggest share of vehicles entering the country," said Chiwama.


And Mwami border post immigration officer-in-charge James Chikoma said a number of Malawians were being trafficked to South Africa via Zambia.
Chikoma said the economic hardships that Malawi was faced with had led to an increase in cases of human trafficking.
"We are more proactive as immigration here on the Zambian side but that's not the case with our colleagues on the Malawian side," Chikoma said.
He also complained about the lack of infrastructure such as houses for immigration officers at the border post.


He said ZRA officers were better taken care of as compared to immigration officers.
In response, Vice-President Scott said the PF government had inherited a lot of problems and was trying to correct the situation.
"We are trying to work things out so that people are paid for what they do and not where they work," he said.
