Nugent Commission of Inquiry into SARS

The Nugent Commission looks likely to see former Sars Commissioner, Tom Moyane, answer questions at the inquiry.

Analysts and tax specialists paint a bleak picture for the future of the South African Revenue Service, following what has been described as a disastrous tenure by former Sars Commissioner, Tom Moyane.

The Nugent Commission is looking at the running of Sars over the past four years.

Senior lecturer at the Wits School of Economics and Business Science, Lumkile Mondi, tells Breakfast Show host, Bongani Bingwa, that there are now calls for Parliament to appoint the future Sars commissioner.

Mondi said Moyane's "wrecking ball tenure" will be felt for the next 25 years.

Also joining the Breakfast Show was former Sars spokesman, Adrian Lackay and MD of One Road Consulting, Ernie Lai King. Both spoke of the losses of institutional knowledge and specialised tax skills that Sars has lost over the past four years under Moyane's leadership.

I the last quarter of 2014, going into 2015, people were beset by fear and uncertainty. There was an active campaign of disinformation, leaking of information to the Sunday Times to discredit and disband Sars.

None of us knew what was going on and asked Moyane to act... tax payers information was being made public. Six weeks after Moyane's appointment, there were suspensions of key individuals. We were shown no respect at all and Moyane would say, 'you don't instruct me what to do'.

Adrian Lackay, former Sars spokesperson and co-author of Rogue

King said Sars has been losing people very rapidly and that it takes a long time to build an effective Sars.

Listen here to Mondi, King and Lackay describe what transpired under Moyane's leadership...
