Maposa handed the equipment to Moyana after the show and was allegedly paid for it.

The equipment was ferried to Redcliff where Moyana is currently based. On Monday morning, club supervisor Lawrence Mupuwi discovered that some equipment was missing and quizzed his security personnel, who fingered Maposa.

When Maposa was interrogated, he allegedly confessed to selling the equipment to Moyana. The matter was then reported to the police, leading to Maposa’s arrest.

Both Moyana and Maposa are set to appear at the Gweru Magistrates’ Court facing theft charges.

Method in which Zimra calculates Duty for imported private vehicles

The duty to be paid on importation of motor vehicles into Zimbabwe is based on the Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) value plus other incidental charges and expenses incurred in the purchase of the vehicle and its subsequent transportation up to the first point of entry into Zimbabwe.

This CIF value and the other charges constitute what is known as the Value for Duty Purposes (VDP). Such other charges include, inter alia, and where applicable:
• Port handling charges, e.g. at Durban Port, Walvis Bay, Beira, Dar es Salaam;
• Storage charges; and
• Any other special handling fees, if not already included in the CIF Value.

The charges that are levied include Customs duty, Surtax and Value Added Tax (VAT). Surtax is only charged on passenger type motor vehicles that are more than five (5) years old at the time of importation. Please note that both Customs duty and Surtax (where applicable) are calculated on the Value for Duty Purposes (VDP). VAT is calculated on the total of VDP plus the calculated Customs duty payable. This value is known as the Value for Tax Purposes (VTP).

**NB: The rate of Customs duty on double cabs is 40% despite the payload. The rate of Customs duty for a Sedan/Station wagon is 25% if the cylinder capacity does not exceed 1500cc. If the cylinder capacity is above 1500cc the rate of Customs duty is 40%.

A South African woman strips naked and caresses Nelson Mandela…

A woman caused a commotion when she undressed and car3ssed the statue of former president South africa Nelson Mandela in Sandton.

The Star newspaper reported that he woman was said to have walked around Nelson Mandela Square before undressing herself in full view of the public on Monday afternoon. The spectacle caused those working in nearby restaurants to get their orders wrong and one man was hit on the head by his wife for getting up for a closer look.

Social media was abuzz with people trying to find out who she was.

Some people were however not amused by the stunt.

Many called her actions distasteful and commented on whether her body was good enough to be shown in public.

Khotso Tladi, a chef at Baglios said: “She didn’t have a nice body, everything was saggy and she had hair. Afroman was better.”

Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square regional marketing manager Megan Meas told the paper that they were aware of the incident.

“This was an unauthorised incident conducted by a private citizen in her personal capacity on our property,” she said.

The woman was not charged and her whereabouts are unknown.

Sudanese Woman Condemned to Hang Flies to Italy: Report

A woman sentenced to death for marrying a Christian has flown to Italy, according to a report from the BBC.

Meriem Ibrahim, 27, was sentenced to be flogged and hanged to death in Sudan for marrying a Christian and converting from the Muslim faith to Christianity. Ibrahim’s story drew outrage from people across the globe as her story went viral on social media under the “#savemeriam” hashtag and world leaders condemned the harsh sentence.

Ibrahim and her family flew on an Italian government plane, accompanied by Italian minister Lapo Pistelli, the BBC reports. Pistelli posted a photo to Facebook showing the group with the caption, “With Miriam, Maya, Martin and Daniel, in a few minutes of Rome. Mission accomplished.”

The “1 percent” are richer than you thought

The rich keep getting richer, and that apparently holds true when it comes to estimates of their wealth.

While the top 1 percent of U.S. earners had been thought to control 30 percent of the country’s total wealth, it turns out that might be a lowball estimate, according to a new working paper from a European Central Bank senior economist.

There may be a problem with that 30 percent figure, given that wealthier households are less likely to respond to surveys about their assets than lower-income families, writes economist Philip Vermeulen. By using data from Forbes’ billionaires lists in a new analysis, he estimates that share of wealth controlled by America’s top 1 percent is between 35 percent and 37 percent.

“Our knowledge of the wealth distribution is less than perfect,” Vermeulen wrote. “Our results clearly indicate that survey wealthy estimates are very likely to underestimate wealth at the top.”

An accurate grasp of the wealth distribution is important for both economic research and policy makers, given that it helps calibrate macroeconomic models and guides fiscal policy, he added.

The paper, which reflects the view of the author and doesn’t represent the views of the ECB, found wealth estimates for the top 1 percent in other countries also undercounted their assets.

In the Netherlands, for instance, the top 1 percent of earners are estimated to control 26 percent of the country’s wealth, but Vermeulen’s analysis boosted that to 28 percent to 35 percent.

The gap between rich and poor has reached “spectacular” heights in the U.S., bestselling economist Thomas Piketty told CBS MoneyWatch last month. The thesis of his “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” holds that the rate of return on capital, such as real estate, is outpacing the rate of economic growth, leading to wealth inequalities that are likely to continue.

Amid growing concern over rising wealth inequality, the Obama administration is championing a hike to the minimum wage, seeking to raise it to $10.10 an hour. For his part, Piketty has proposed remedies such as a global tax on wealth. (Vermeulen doesn’t include recommendations in his paper.)

Previous research has found that America’s income inequality is on the rise. The top 1 percent of Americans now takes home one-fifth of all pre-tax income, or more than double their share in 1980, according to report earlier this year from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. That report found that the level of income inequality is much worse than in other countries.

The richest Americans hold a far greater share of the country’s wealth than the richest citizens in nine other countries, according to Vermeulen’s research. The next two countries where the richest residents hold the biggest share of the pie were Austria, with 33 percent to 36 percent, and Germany, with 32 percent to 33 percent of wealth share.
