LISTEN: Jacques Pauw defends credibility of tax evasion claims in Zuma book

Author and investigative journalist Jacques Pauw maintains that evidence, research and multiple sources can corroborate alleged tax evasion by President Jacob Zuma.

Sources provided me with hard evidence in many cases. I have stacks of documents. I have lots of information; tape recordings, affidavits, official state security agency documentation.

Jacques Pauw, author and investigative journalist

Pauw has penned an explosive book, The President's Keepers, which claims Zuma received R1 million a month from a security company without declaring it to the SA Revenue Service (Sars), among other things.

The book alleges that Zuma did not submit tax returns for five years - from 2009 until 2014 - despite former Sars deputy commissioner, Ivan Pillay‚ begging him to.

The Presidency has denied all claims and others linked to Zuma’s alleged dealings and has threatened legal action.

Meanwhile, Pauw has labeled the Presidency's statement as "pathetic" and says that state institutions are now bearing the brunt of Zuma's corrupt actions.

Pauw says that the South African Police Service (Saps), State Security Agency, Hawks, NPA, Crime Intelligence and Sars have all suffered under Zuma's administration.
