-Most likely this is meant to justify the illegal trade by state house
-How come ZRA says nothing about the people who were smuggling it
ZRA SAYS IT HAS BURST MUKULA SCAM WORTH 6.6 MILLION
For Immediate Release .
4th January 2017.
The Zambia Revenue Authority has intercepted a total of 22 Mukula trucks worth 6.6 Million Kwacha.
Among them 3 trucks were intercepted in South Africa at Beit Bridge and are being brought back into Lusaka.
The Elite ZRA Anti-Smuggling Squad has been working with various security wings of government to make sure the contraband is brought back to Zambia.
The Authority has memorandum of understanding with Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) and the South African Revenue Services (SARS).
The Authority wishes to thank all the security wings for the help rendered to ZRA during this sophisticated assignment.
As an Authority we wish to make it very clear that we shall not tolerate any smuggling into Zambia and out of Zambia. ZRA has since forfeited these trucks to the state with immediate effect and the Commissioner General will soon be donating this Mukula Consignment to the state through ZAFFICO.
