Nugent Commission of Inquiry

EWN reporter Barry Bateman says it is clear that Tom Moyane is up for a legal battle after he was axed by the President.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Thursday that he has heeded the recommendations of the Nugent Commission of Inquiry, which submitted its interim report at the end of September to axe Tom Moyane as the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (Sars).

EWN reporter Barry Bateman says Moyane is not going to take this decision lying down.

He said as much to the President when he submitted those submissions last week Friday where he urged the President to disregard the Nugent recommendations and its findings saying that any reasonable President who applies his mind would disregard these findings.

Barry Bateman, EWN reporter

He adds that the President applied his mind and certainly heeded those recommendations and has gone on to fire him.

He made the point that if you do not disregard them and you do go ahead with this, we reserve our right and among those was the threat of hauling the President off to court. And of course, don't forget that he has applied to the Constitutional Court to review the establishment of this commission.

Barry Bateman, EWN reporter

Moyane has made it clear that he is up for a legal battle and I think this has just added fuel to that fire and he definitely is going to take it further.
