“The letters are allegedly signed by CT Shumba, C Mayo, CT Chingwanda and B Nyika. We urge you to confirm with Zimra managers or supervisors from your nearest Zimra office before serving any officials claiming to be coming from Zimra.” the notice adds.

The notice also stated that when carrying out audits duties and or visiting clients, premises, Zimra officers work in teams of at least two officers and they should be displaying name tags showing the first name and the surname of each officer, plus Zimra identity cards.
