ZAMBIA Revenue Authority (ZRA) says it has lost about K400 million in revenue collection as a result of the Cyclone Idai that hit neighboring Malawi Mozambique and Zimbabwe. ZRA Commissioner-General Kingsley Chanda said the damage in infrastructure such as bridges that was caused by the cyclone had affected the flow of traffic such as trucks hence impacting negatively on their revenue collection. Mr Chanda has however indicated that measures are being put in place to correct the situation before the country losses more revenue. He said the loss is however a temporaly setback that will be addressed soon.

More than 1, 000 people were feared dead as Cyclone Idai made landfall on sustained winds of over 110 mph. Cyclone Idai touched down in Mozambique, causing devastation across the country, and continuing through neighbouring Malawi and Zimbabwe. Hundreds throughout all three countries are displaced and in need of food, water and shelter.
