“The first principle of taxation is the principle of equity. Therefore, if some people working in MTN or teachers in private or government [schools] are having their allowances taxed, it is not proper for some people, or for me, to use my position not to pay tax. All of us must pay taxes,” Mr Muhakanizi said.
