UPND demands resignation of ZRA commissioner for corruption, nepotism

Kingsley Chanda

We have listened to the phone conversation between the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda and a PF official Chanda Nyela.

The whole chilling conversation smells the ugly stench of tribalism, nepotism and deep rooted corruption which is the hallmark of what PF is known for.

With such conversations going round in corridors of the PF government offices, it once more confirms the deep rooted corruption, tax evasion and grand theft as revealed by the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) reports, and the numerous Auditor General’s reports.

In a normal country,
Mr. Kingsley Chanda would by now be packing and be dismissed for condoning a conversation that encourages tax evasion and nepotism in such a sensitive and strategic government office.

How can the whole lot of the Commissioner General Mr. Chanda have so much hatred against fellow citizens for merely exercising their democratic right of belonging the UPND yet they are also paying taxes, though it’s being looted by PF criminals?

We have insisted that there is wide spread segregation of citizens in this country by the PF regime on mere suspicion of belonging to the UPND when it comes to accessing government services and opportunities in many sectors of our economy.

We as UPND reject such classifications and divisions of our citizens and look forward to reuniting the broken Zambian family into one entity once again.

We reiterate that every citizen deserves equal opportunities regardless of their political affiliations as we are in a democracy with divergent views.

Of course we do not expect law enforcement agencies to move in on Mr. Chanda and ZRA as the PF regime has completely destroyed all the government institutions with their stinking corruption and needs a complete overhaul under the new leadership of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND.
