ZIMRA has confiscateda 45-seater luxury coach donated to Caps United FC by former forward Nyasha Mushekwi.
Authorities are now investigating the duty paid for its entrance into this country.
This development happens few days after Nyasha flew in Zimbabwe to pay all required duty before the bus was cleared and delivered to the Caps United base.
ZIMRA decided to do a ‘review’ of the duty tax that they valued on the bus and signs show that they intend to increase the duty by a large figure.
Nyasha Mushekwi has since confirmed the sad development:
I just heard they (Zimra) are taking the bus, it’s quite disappointing, I don’t understand the situation because they were the ones who told me to pay the duty which I paid for the bus to be cleared to come home.
Now, I’m hearing they are saying the duty I paid wasn’t enough for a bus like the one I brought in and, maybe, they want me to pay more, I don’t really know.
What I can say is that the news is very disappointing, especially after you have done everything to try and help sport in your country, and – for me – it’s like saying in Zimbabwe one can’t do something good and it gets celebrated because this is our country and we are the ones who can make a difference.
It makes you think twice, when such things happen, and you end up asking yourself if this was worth it, at all, or I could have taken whatever money I invested into the project and use it for my personal needs where I would not have to go through all these problems.
