Mopani should be punished for tax evasion - Mukanga
Yamfwa Mukanga, who is member of parliament for Kantanshi Constituency in Mufulira district, was commenting on the pilot audit on Mopani Copper Mines, which revealed glaring inconsistencies in production and revenue figures the mine submits to the Zambia Revenue Authority for tax administration, figures which the report indicated might not be trustworthy.
Mukanga said no government official must protect Mopani Copper Mines for violating the law by evading tax.
"I want to see the law taking its course. Let the law visit Mopani and we see what is going to happen. I believe they are not just evading tax, I believe that there are people in government benefiting from this," Mukanga said. "I am disappointed that the government has been crying every day and yet it is letting Mopani go scot-free. I want to go to Mopani and talk to management."
Mukanga said the decision by the government, through ZRA, to protect Mopani and underpaying the mining firm's evasion of taxes raised suspicion.
There is someone getting money from this evasion of tax," Mukanga said. He said Mopani was not undertaking any corporate social responsibility.
"For Mopani to be evading tax, I am very disappointed because Mufulira, where the mine is, is in a deplorable state; the roads are so bad," he said. "If they Mopani were evading tax but were ploughing into the community they operate from, maybe people could be saying it channels money into the community but look at how bad Mufulira is. It's terrible. Mopani is not ploughing back into the community."
Mukanga demanded that the government reintroduce windfall tax to ensure that all Zambians benefit from the minerals.
He said the copper, which is currently trading at over US$10, 000 per tonne, was not benefiting the people.
He said Zambians and investors must share the gains from the minerals equally. "This government is not providing enough tax regime. I am condemning the investors for failing to even pay what is due to Zambians," Mukanga said.
And Mukanga demanded the removal of Mwansa Mbulakulima from Copperbelt as provincial minister after he said the region would not receive development if it continued to vote for the opposition.
"Rupiah Banda was supposed to have removed Mbulakulima from here," said Mukanga.
KANTANSHI member of ..., 22 Oct 2009 [cached]
KANTANSHI member of Parliament, Yamfwa Mukanga (PF) has urged Government to waive duty on imported safety clothing for workers.
Mr Mukanga said this will ensure that employers have no excuse for failing to provide safety attire for workers, especially in the mining industry.
He said this in Parliament on Tuesday when contributing to debate on the 2010 budget presented to Parliament by the Minister of Finance and National Planning, Situmbeko Musokotwane.
And Mr Mukanga said he has nothing against Chinese investors but that he has a problem with their attitude towards Zambian workers.
"I personally do not hate the Chinese because they were created by God and are bringing investment to this country.
"What I do not like is their attitude towards our workers, and in this case, I think the Government should consider introducing a waiver on imported safety clothing as this will ensure that all our workers get safety attire," Mr Mukanga said.
Zambia National Broadcasting Cooperation, 5 Sept 2006 [cached]
PF out-going Kantanshi Member of Parliament, Yamfwa Mukanga said this during a public forum organized by Mufulira Press Club at Joggers Night Club.
He said once PF assumes power, it would also advocate for equal pay for equal work amongst local and expatriate personnel working in the mines.
The outgoing parliamentarian who is seeking re-election for the Kantanshi seat said the PF if elected into office would ensure local firms are given contracts for mining works.
Mr. Mukanga said it was appalling that currently Mining giants are engaging foreign conglomerates for workers which could otherwise be done by locals.
He said Zambia had too many qualified graduates and it did not make sense to bring in plumbers and other artisans to work in the country.

And opposition Kantanshi Member of Parliament, Yamfwa Mukanga, who was present during the meeting hailed the traders for protesting saying it was a good gesture as it indicated that they were not happy with the peace of legislation.
Mr Mukanga, however, warned of the risk of imprisonment for traders who would not comply with provisions of the Statutory Instrument.
Kantanshi Patriotic Front (PF) Member, ..., 17 April 2007 [cached]
Kantanshi Patriotic Front (PF) Member, Yamfwa Mukanga said the mines are likely to lose colossal sums of money as a result of the energy deficit.
This he said would also have a negative and direct effect on Zambia's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
The PF Member also challenged stakeholders in the mining sector to seriously ponder on the effects of the energy shortage.
Mr. Mukanga, appealed to mining firms to exploit and look at possibilities of using other alternative sources of energy.
