The arresting of MRA Deputy Commissioner General Roza Mbilizi last Friday July 10th on trumped up charges of clearing imported bags of cement under President Mutharika’s TPIN, is another new and embarrassing low that MCP government has landed on.
President Chakwera’s mission to implicate innocent officers at the tax-collection body in order to pave for illegal appointment of a new deputy that is expected to start clearing goods and items by big companies that have been sponsoring MCP’s campaign in order to cover for their billions accumulated loans.
According to information in the public domain, President Chakwera already named a provisional replacement for Mbilizi in the name of Henry Ngutwa, who is currently Lawyer for MRA responsible for Revenue.
Lazarus Chakwera has also appointed John Bizwick, a son to John Tembo; and Agnes Katsonga, a relation to Mark Katsonga a Tonse financier, as Deputy Commissioner for Administration.
All this chain of questionable earmarked appointments is a foundation of a syndicate that Dr. Chakwera is laying down in order to successfully repay, through MRA, funds that Tonse Alliance owes to her financiers and at the same time allow Dr Lazarus Chakwera to import items of his liking, according to the provision of the law.
