Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) is set to auction different imported goods for which owners did not clear taxes. The goods include 14.47 tonnes of Holy Qurans belonging to Rwanda Muslims Association (RMC).

Stocked in MAGERWA warehouses, the RMC’s Qurans and 1,444 cartons of ‘grapevine fruits’ locally known as intende, will go to auction on 28th this month.

According to the announcement from RRA, the auction is set on 28th this month at Magerwa in Gikondo, Kigali city.

Both the Qurans and grapevine fruits were from foreign donors to RMC.

RMC was reportedly informed too late about the arrival of goods, making them fail to clear taxes on time.

IGIHE heard that RMC is unable to pay the required Rwf30 million as taxes to acquire the goods.

RMC officials did not want to comment on the issue by press time.

Among other goods to be auctioned are mattresses, generators and machines, glasses and water dispensers and more commodities stocked at Magerwa and Ballore Logistics warehouses.

According to RRA, failing to clear taxes for goods in public warehouses before six months results in auction to avoid accumulating taxes and to leave space for incoming goods
