I can’t reveal everything I’m working on at the moment, but there’s definitely new revelations coming before the end of the week, specifically relating to Moyane and the Guptas… The evidence is damning.— Pauli van Wyk, Scorpio at Daily Maverick
Jonas Makwakwa has resigned.
He was the Chief Officer for Business and Individual Tax at the South African Revenue Service (Sars).
Makwakwa has been embroiled in fraud and corruption allegations since 2016 but was controversially cleared of wrongdoing in an internal hearing last year.
The Hawks are investigating allegations of fraud and money laundering related to R600 000 paid into Makwakwa’s bank account, as identified by the Financial Intelligence Centre.
Last week, he was accused of improperly influencing the appointment of debt collector New Integrated Credit Solutions (NICS).
Due to the resignation being effective immediately, it serves no purpose to proceed with the matter from the employment relations’ perspective.— Tom Moyane, Sars
Makwakwa cited personal reasons for his resignation.
