Axed Moyane refused to avail himself to the Nugent Commission
President Cyril Ramaphosa fired SARS commissioner Tom Moyane on Thursday, following the recommendation made by the SARS Commission chaired by retired Judge Robert Nugent.
Spokesperson for President Ramaphosa, Khusela Diko says Moyane failed to speak to substantive issues that Judge Nugent had raised.
Moyane also failed to avail himself to the Nugent Commission to answer to some of the allegations leveled against him.
The President felt it was proper to accept Judge Nugent recommendations and terminated Moyane's appointment with Sars with immediate effect.Khusela Diko, Spokesperson for President Cyril Ramaphosa
Should Moyane decide to exercise his rights and approach the courts, which he is well within his rights to do so, then the matter will be vehemently defended.Khusela Diko, Spokesperson for President Cyril Ramaphosa
Who will be the next Sars commissioner?
Diko says the President has noted the commission's recommendations with regards to the appointment of the new Sars commissioner that it should be done in an open and transparent process.
The President will be implementing all of these recommendations and he has committed himself in ensuring that the vacant position of Sars commissioner is filled as soon as possible.Khusela Diko, Spokesperson for President Cyril Ramaphosa
We are looking for civil servants who have earned their positions through merit and who are hardworking people.Khusela Diko, Spokesperson for President Cyril Ramaphosa
We need somebody with steady hands who is going to restore public confidence in the South African Revenue Services and that the higher purpose that Sars speaks about is returned and works for the betterment of the country as a whole.Khusela Diko, Spokesperson for President Cyril Ramaphosa
