United Progressive People (UPP) President Saviour Chishimba insists that he has enough evidence to prove his alleged corruption at the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) regarding k140 million projects involving the Chinese contractors.
Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda said UPP leader Saviour Chishimba’s claims are unfounded and should be dismissed with the contempt they deserve.
Dr. Chishimba explained that the UPP categorically stated that the Chinese proposed to undertake the project at K84 million but the total donor funding allocated to the project was K140 million.
He also noted that the UPP had warned ZRA against choosing a firm known as Inspur, which he said it lamentably failed to deliver in Zimbabwe due to massive corruption and monopolization of the supply of Electronic Fiscal Devices (EFDs)
“We have enough evident on ZRA corruption and we are warning Kingsley Chanda against being a defend of corruption at ZRA” he said
And the UPP leader said ZRA Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda should desist from pronouncements that make ZRA look like it is now a political party in Zambia.
He said the UPP does not expect ZRA to denigrate the UPP leadership over a credible matter of national interest, adding that his party will not wait to be in Government to help solve problems Zambians are faced with.
“We want to advise ZRA Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda to desist from pronouncements that make ZRA look like it is now a political party in Zambia” Dr. Chishimba said
