UPND GOVERNMENT CONFIRMS THAT ZRA COMMISSIONER GENERAL’S CONTRACT HAS BEEN RENEWED UPTO 2025
The ministry of Finance has confirmed Zambian Watchdog scoop that the contract for the Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda has been renewed.
The ministry of Finance however under Situmbeko Musokotwane is miserably trying to justify the rewarding of this PF thief by claiming that the renewal was ‘initiated’ by PF. This is utter rubbish. As originators of this revelation, We know exactly when the contract was renewed and who received bribes.
Why use vague terms such as ‘Initiated’? Is this not meant to misled the public? If it was initiated by PF, why not stop it now that you are in power? All the appointments of parastatal heads were done by PF so you mean you won’t act on them because they were initiated by PF?

ABOUT THE ZRA COMMISSIONER GENERAL
Being the Ministry under which the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) falls, it has become inevitable to clarify that the renewal of the running contract for the Commissioner General of the Zambia Revenue Authority Dr Kingsley Chanda WAS INITIATED by the previous administration and NOT the new dawn administration of the UPND Alliance.
Therefore the information circulating in the media that the contract renewal was initiated by the current administration is NOT TRUE as per above clarification.
Questions on this matter may be referred to the ZRA Board.The public is notified accordingly.
