Minister of Finance Professor Mthuli Ncube has with immediate effect fired the entire board of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) that made rich pickings from fees and allowances last year after pocketing a combined $292 582.
In a statement this afternoon the Minister of Finance said the tax collector, ZIMRA will be run by the Treasury until new management is appointed.
The dismissals have been hailed as the begining of the much needed reforms inorder to manage government finances.
The Zimra board had 10 members who were appointed on June 26, 2015.
