Colonel Chanda says the Zambia Revenue Authority ZRA officers were working although the link to the systems was still down.
He however ,advised the clearing agencies to remain calm than taking into the streets.
And chairman of Clearing agency in Nakonde Steven Chile she says they are we’re not in dispute to the scuba world but the problem is late clearance.
Mr Chileshe said his members are paying heavily due to late clearance as the Tanzania side have charge 20’dolars per day for each vehicle.
