    Power woes hit TRA collection

    By DAILY NEWS Reporter, 19th January 2011 @ 22:00, Total Comments: 0, Hits: 66

    FREQUENT power black-outs have largely affected operations at the Tanzania Revenue
    Authority (TRA) Long Room in Dar es Salaam by delaying the processing of documents for cargo clearance.

    TRA Customs and Excise Commissioner Walid Juma admitted the delay in an interview with the ‘Daily News’ in the city on Wednesday but promised that the authority will ensure that all its offices get uninterrupted power supply to save the nation from making huge losses in terms of tax deficits.

    It is estimated that the country collects about 5bn/- tax on imports daily. Mr Juma said that the move followed the authority’s meeting with Tanesco officials.

    He said that relevant instructions have been issued to all TRA and Tanesco regional offices for the implementation of the decision.

    “The problem is now over. TANESCO’s Managing Director has directed all regional offices to make sure that TRA offices are supplied with electricity whether there is power rationing or
    not,” Mr Juma said.

    He admitted reports that there was power blackouts at the TRA Long Room for almost 36 hours that halted the process of logging documents for cargo clearance.

    Mr Juma said the generator at the Long Room had broken down, affecting clearance form revenue collection.

    Tanzania Shipping Agency (TASA) Chairman Emmanuel Mallya suggested that the Long Room should be well equipped to be operational all the time.

    “The multiple effects of Long Room going out of electricity are greater, in actual fact the place cannot afford to miss power because of rationing,” Mr Mallya said.

    The chairman said, for example, that at any given time there are about eight ships at Dar es Salaam Port loading or offloading goods at its 11 berths.

    He said the berth’s occupancy is 75 per cent a day. “If there is no power the documentation
    process stops, making cargo to pile up,” Mr Mallya told the ‘Daily News’.

    Huu mchezo mchafu wa kutanguliza masilahi binafsi unatishia hata uwezo wa serikali kutekeleza majukumu yake.....kwa sababu kama TRA makusanyo ni madogo inaamanisha uwezo wa serikali kutatua kero za wananchi nao ni finyu....................
