'The president won't buckle to any demands by Tom Moyane's legal team'

President Cyril Ramaphosa has effectively dared suspended Sars Commissioner Tom Moyane to take him to court.

Ramaphosa has also refused almost all of the tax boss’s demands about his upcoming disciplinary inquiry.

Ramaphosa has flatly refused to fund Moyane’s legal costs in fighting to keep his job on the basis that 'Sars has no policy authorising the legal funding of an employee in disciplinary inquiries'.

The president was very adamant that he will not buckle to any of the demands by Tom Moyane's legal team, reports EWN's Qaanitah Hunter.

And he did not respond well to the ultimatum given to him that he should respond favorably by yesterday.
