Has Tom Moyane surrendered over suspension row?

It seem that suspended Sars Commissioner Tom Moyane may have changed his mind about challenging his suspension.

On Sunday, Ramaphosa gave Moyane an opportunity to resign, and when he refused the President placed him on immediate suspension.

Moyane then wrote to Ramaphosa, threatening to approach the courts if the suspension is not revoked by 9:30pm on Sunday.
