Cellphone Tax to begin by May


Lusaka deputy mayor Chilando Chitangala says all mobile phone owners in Lusaka will be required to pay a fee towards garbage collection exercises through monthly deductions to improve health and sanitation.

This is probably the 10th tax the PF has inflicted on citizens this year alone.

Chitangala said the monthly deduction fee will be conducted through partnership with Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA).

“The Lusaka City Council is currently in consultation with ZICTA to ensure that every person in the city who owns a mobile phone makes a payment towards the collection of garbage once in a month. Through the partnership we will ensure that an effective structure is set up for conducive garbage collection,” she said.

What is the connection between a mobile phone and garbage ? When was this law passed by parliament ?
