The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) on Thursday impounded four buses belonging to Mr. Benson Vitsitsi of P.O. Box 31256, Blantyre just four days after being introduced into Malawi.

The buses were inaugurated into the business industry last week and started operating on the roads of Malawi on Monday this week.

MRA Head of Corporate Affairs, Steven Kapoloma said the seizure is on suspicion that Mr. Vitsitsi presented false or falsified documents during clearance of the same contrary to the provisions of the Customs and Excise Act.

“Bank documents presented to MRA by Mr. Vitsitsi, purportedly being remittance documents to the supplier of the buses in China, are allegedly to have been false or falsified,” Kapoloma said.

Currently, the four buses are being kept at MRA’s offices in Lilongwe and Blantyre as the Authority conducts further verifications regarding the allegation.
