The instruction from Moyane to the official was to allegedly avoid speaking to KPMG investigators during 'rogue unit' inquiry.

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.

It appears the phone call was recorded by Helgard Lombard....The recording appears to be part of the allegations that are being put to Moyane in the affidavit filed by former finance minister Pravin Gordhan.

Barry Bateman, EWN reporter

It forms part of the evidence that will be put before Tom Moyane when he finally has his day in his disciplinary hearing inquiry.

The damning evidence could strengthen President Cyril Ramaphosa's case to remove Tom Moyane as Sars commissioner, says Bateman.

The recording is obtained by News24
