Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) officers stationed at the Beitbridge border post have reportedly gone into panic mode following the release of a list of vehicles which are alleged to have been fraudulently imported into the country.
The News Day reports that there are ZIMRA officials who, together with some fraudulent shipping agents connive to rob the taxman so that owners retain some money which they would share.
The alleged panic came after ZIMRA released a statement urging owners of cars listed in a statement to visit ZIMRA offices for verification purposes. The statement which was followed by a list of the vehicle registration numbers, chassis numbers, vehicle type and its owner’s name read:
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
