MRA splashes prizes to 105 winners in ‘Lisiti Langa’ competition

Blantyre: At least 105 people have emerged winners of different prizes in the first draw of ‘Lisiti Langa’ promotion being run by Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA).

The promotion seeks to encourage consumers to demand an Electronic Fiscal Device (EFD) generated receipt whenever they buy taxable items from Valued Added Tax (VAT) registered shops.

Speaking after conducting the first draw on Friday in Blantyre, MRA Head of Corporate Affairs, Steven Kapoloma said it is pleasing to note that the promotion continues to receive overwhelming response as evidenced by the number of people participating in the competition across the country.

For the first week, we have seen 6800 entries in this draw and out of which 105 have won different prizes such as cash, bicycles, solar lamps, blankets, branded T/shirts, cell phones, airtime and other miscellaneous prizes. This is a landmark in as far as this draw is concerned.

As MRA, we will continue running this promotion as well as conducting weekly draws because we would like to create a culture within Malawian society of demanding an EFD receipt to prove that one has purchased a particular item and that the taxes that the person has paid have gone to government, in so doing increasing revenue collection by the authority, he said.

On VAT collected so far through the promotion Kapoloma said: We will do an analysis in the coming weeks to see how much MRA has collected within the ‘Lisiti Langa’ promotion campaign.

During the draw, six lucky winners walked away with K50, 000 each, whilst six people won bicycles each. Four became winners of cell phones and six other participants won blankets, among other prizes.

To qualify for weekly draws, one needs to demand an original EFD receipt from any taxable goods and dial *915*5# on Airtel or TNM to enter serial and receipt number then send.

The promotion runs from May 11 to July 27, 2018.

During the final draw slated for July 27, 2018, the grand prize will be K2, 000, 000 while second prize will K500, 000 and Television screen.

The last prize in the final draw will be K200, 000 and upright refrigerator.
