On January 19, 2023, some social media platforms carried a post entitled, “ZAMBIA REVENUE AUTHORITY RECRUITMENT 2023/2024”. The post was disguised as an advert which further called on people to “Hurry Now And Apply For The Zambia Revenue Authority Job Recruitment 2023/2024 for new staffs”. The post directed people to clink on a given link for application guidelines. The link was also forwarded on Whatsapp platfotms.
iVerify Zambia has determined as False the post purpoted to be a recruitment advertisement from the Zambia Revenue Authority which was widely circulated on social media platforms. iVerify Zambia examined the link to the website and established that it was not a genuine Zambia Revenue Authority website page. iVerify also contacted ZRA through the Corporate and Communications Manager, Mr. Oliver Nzala who confirmed that the link was not from ZRA, adding that action would be taken through the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA). Further more, ZRA had posted on their official Facebook page a statement cautioning the public to ignore any social media posts claiming that ZRA is recruiting for 2023 and 2024, as the postings are FAKE. ZRA was rather currently reviewing applications made in 2022 which it would communicate to the successful candidates in due course, according to the ZRA Facebook post. Therefore, it is false that ZRA is recruiting staff for 2023 and 2024 as the advertisement is fake including the website linked to the advert.
