The South African Revenue Service’s (Sars) IT division does not have sufficient funds, according to its Chief Officer for IT, Mmamathe Makhekhe-Mokhuane.

Makhekhe-Mokhuane testified at the Nugent Commission of Inquiry on Wednesday.

Judge Robert Nugent's interim report appeals to President Cyril Ramaphosa to immediately sack disgraced Commissioner Tom Moyane.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Pieter du Toit, Assistant Editor of In-depth News at News24.

Du Toit discussed the following five highlights from the scathing Nugent report:

  • Fear and loathing at Sars

  • Judge Robert Nugent's appeal to immediately get rid of Tom Moyane

  • Growing frustration inside of Sars

  • The “rogue unit” that was nothing of the sort

  • IT crashes

For more detail listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Judge Nugent said Sars reeked of intrigue, fear, distrust and suspicion… Tom Moyane was a terrible boss according to this… Ever since he’s arrived on the scene Sars has been struggling…

Pieter du Toit, News24

There’s no way that Tom Moyane will stay at his post… he’s been a wrecking ball…

Pieter du Toit, News24

The reign of terror which Tom Moyane brought on the institution… there’s frustration amongst staffers… the commission struggled to get information because people were scared… Moyane was looking over everyone’s shoulder…

Pieter du Toit, News24

Judge Nugent says there’s absolutely no evidence [of a “rogue unit”]…

Pieter du Toit, News24

Ever since Tom Moyane arrived on the scene… the ongoing modernisation programme was pretty much halted…
