ZRA boss Kingsley Chanda fired

ZRA boss Kingsley Chanda fired

Good Evening ZRA family

As you may be aware my contract has been terminated.

Let me take this early opportunity to thank you for the teamwork and the results we collectively achieved in the last 5 years of my contract. There is no doubt ZRA has been transformed and it’s contribution to the nation is evident.

Please note that the position of CG is a Presidential appointment and the decision by the new President is perfectly in order. I will personally thank him for the opportunity to work with him for a few days in my new contract.

My appeal to you is that please continue working with the same determination and commitment. Our country desperately needs revenues and ZRA is critical to the success of government. Please support the new Commissioner General and the new government.

I leave a very proud team-member and I pray you will not lower the bar despite my timely departure.

Lastly allow me to thank all the tax payers for the support during my tenure of office.

Kingsley Chanda

    The ultimate removal of Mr Kingsley Chanda as Commissioner General has ended weeks of speculations around his continuation in office.
    Without information to substantiate any wrong doing,I personally feel that Mr. Chanda together with his team have done a very good job in the 5 years he has been at the helm at Revenue House.
    ZRA has greatly been transformed especially with investment in IT. It’s not a long time ago when making tax returns at whatever level was such a stressful undertaking. Whenever the due date for VAT came, it was not uncommon to see queues form at Kabwe roundabout as early as 06h00.
    With his interventions, making returns, including payments for the same has become as simple as texting a friend. I can’t remember the last time I ever visited those offices and yet I am always fulfilling tax obligations both privately and cooperately. There’s further been a general proactive engagement with the members of the public on why paying taxes is important resulting in a general increase in tax compliance.
    From the compliance perspective, I believe that making systems so user friendly, as the case has been at ZRA, helps to remove opportunities for corrupt activities. One has to just look at what happens at the passport, nrc and the birth records offices.
    That said, I believe it’s within the president’s prerogative to appoint as well as terminate an appointment.
    Mr. Dingani Banda, the new Commissioner General, certainly has very big shoes to fill.
