Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader Walter Magaya has been summoned by the police for allegedly evading $22 million tax.
The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) is accusing Magaya of under-declaring his earnings. This comes after a lifestyle audit was done on him and his church dealings, after suspicion that he had been under-declaring his earnings. When contacted by The Herald, police spokesperson Commission Charity Charamba confirmed police were looking for Magaya. She could not give further information.
Zimra Commissioner-General Ms Faith Mazani’s assistant, John Chakasikwa, confirmed that they were after Magaya over the tax issue. He said the matter was being handled by the Criminal Investigations Division (Commercials Crime Division). Zimra recently issued a garnish order against Magaya’s church accounts held with a local bank. This followed Zimra’s raid at Magaya’s church at least twice last year, in a bid to audit his earnings and other business interests that include a hotel owned by the church, a tile manufacturing factory and a farming concern.
