Mthuli Ncube's 2% tax court challenge dismissed

Mthuli Ncube's 2% tax court challenge dismissed
Published: 22 October 2018 (173 Views)
A High Court judge has dismissed an application by Mfundo Mlilo a human rights activist challenging the legality of the 2 percent tax on money transfers which was recently imposed by Finance and Economic Development minister Mthuli Ncube.

Justice Felistus Chatukuta said the matter was not urgent and ruled that it should be placed on the ordinary roll.

The judge questioned why the application had been lodged almost two weeks after the tax was announced.

Mlilo who is director of the Combined Harare Residents' Association is challenging the lawfulness of the two percent per dollar tax gazetted by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube last Friday.

Mlilo is arguing that Zimbabwe's Constitution does not allow government to repeal sections of an Act of Parliament without being debated and passed by the National Assembly.


Mlilo says citizens should not pay for Government debt when they do not know what the money was used for.
