'It's strange that Tom Moyane wants the Sars inquiry called off'

Suspended Sars commissioner Tom Moyane appeared before the Nugent inquiry on Friday and believes the commission of inquiry into Sars in unfair.

Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar Ranjeni Mununsamy says there needs to be a line drawn when it comes to advocate Dali Mpofu and his political position at the EFF.

Mpofu is representing Moyane at the inquiry.

Many people found that it was strange that Dali Mpofu was not arguing to make the immediate counter-argument on behalf of Tom Moyane at the inquiry. He was saying that the inquiry should be called off which I think is rather strange.

Considering the avalanche of information that was shared by former and current employees of Sars last week, you would think it would be in the commissioner's interest to present his point of view and to present the evidence that he has.

It's quite strange that Tom Moyane's first preference is for the inquiry to be called off altogether.

Ranjeni Mununsamy, Associate Editor: Analysis - Tiso Blackstar

It's quite strange and we can't help but draw this conclusion... is that surely any political party in the country would want this inquiry to reach its conclusion and find out why Sars is inefficient and ineffective.
