Moyane gives Ramaphosa until Friday to withdraw his notice of termination

Axed South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane has given President Cyril Ramaphosa until midday on Friday to withdraw his notice of termination.

The former Sars boss was let go following recommendations made by retired Judge Robert Nugent in an interim report.
