Damning audio of Tom Moyane instructing Sars official to fake illness emerges

A damning telephone conversation of suspended Sars commissioner Tom Moyane instructing an employee to fake an illness to avoid speaking to KPMG investigators has emerged.

In the audio, Moyane could be heard telling Helgard Lombard not to cooperate with the investigation and that he (Moyane) has got his back.

EWN reporter Barry Bateman says the KPMG investigation was part of the inquiry into the so-called Rogue Unit which Lombard was part of.

They (KPMG) wanted to have an interview with him to find out what information he had about this particular unit.
