The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) is confident that the re-introduction of Whistle Blower programmes will make the institution to be a corrupt-free tax administration.

This follows a recent virtual meeting between the MRA Commissioner General John Bizwick and officials of the World Customs Organization (WCO).

The virtual meeting which the WCO representatives had with Biziwick was to discuss the organization’s Anti-Corruption and Integrity Promotion (A-CIP) Programme for Customs.

According to the MRA Commissioner General, some of the initiatives to make MRA a corrupt free institution include; Tip-Offs Anonymous Scheme - for staff and providing sufficient resources to the Internal Affairs Division within their institution.

The WCO, through its website, explains that the virtual discussion with the MRA chief focused on entrenching all initiatives in the fight against corruption and promotion of integrity within the corporate strategy and on linking such initiatives, to performance indicators.

WCO has since pledged to work with MRA in a collective action against corruption.

MRA is facing growing condemnation for being one of the corrupt institutions, as governing party functionaries use it to plunder the public coffers.
