Zambia’s foremost leader opposition Hakainde Hichilema and the minister of Information and Chief Government spokesperson Hon. Dora Siliya twitter exchanges revealed government opinion on Netflix tax.

A while ago government proposed taxing WhatsApp? The tax was to fall on the individual users of the application. After seemingly an outcry from the social media usages the proposal has gone silent.

Now concerning Netflix Tax how is the Zambian government going to do it? Will they tax the end-users? Will they tax the ISP or they will tax the actual Netflix.

Our people already pay tax through the data bundles they buy. There is no need to tax NETFLIX. Give our people a break. #Zambia

You want to tax us for using Netflix. That was what was reported. You are not taxing Netflix but Zambians! Stop with this nonsense! You already take over 40 percent of our paycheck. What more do you want?!

You haven’t even finished with your failed project to tax Whatsapp calls you are already thinking of Taxing Netflix. And who tells you Netflix uses your infrastructure? Gosh. You might as well tax this same Twitter you are using.

@Dora_Siliya do you really think Zambia can go on a trade war with a country like the U.S? Or even Malawi? Let me ask a simple question, do you think your Government has the intellectual ability to go on a trade war with Shoprite.

What I am trying to say is you keep hitting your head against a glass wall. Taxing us won’t make you a better minister/government if you don’t look within & accept that the county’s problems are because of your governance. You still have time to fix your mess from that angle.
