On 18 August 2021, the Zambia Whistleblower Facebook page published a story claiming that one of Zambia’s largest mobile network service providers Airtel Networks Zambia Plc has not been paying taxes to the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) for seven years, accumulating a tax debt of K580million. The Zambia Whistleblower article quoted civil rights activist Mr. Brebner Changala, who encouraged the ZRA to close Airtel for non-compliance with tax requirements. Mr Changala said this would also help ZRA to prove that the closure of the Post Newspapers was not political. The report further claimed that Airtel committed a criminal offence, and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) should take interest as they may have falsified some figures for seven years. The Zambia Whistleblower alludes that prior to their post, ZRA sent a demand notice of K580milion to Airtel for unpaid and Airtel has been asked to pay within five working days.
