[LISTEN] 'Zuma's affidavit in aid of Tom Moyane is a fascinating move'
Former President Jacob Zuma has reportedly given his support to former South Africa Revenue Service Commissioner Tom Moyane, saying the Nugent Commission of Inquiry went beyond its mandate.
Zuma is said to have filed an affidavit in Moyane’s Constitutional Court application to review the decision to establish the commission and set aside its recommendations.
President Cyril Ramaphosa fired Moyane two weeks ago as recommended by the Nugent commission of inquiry.
Journalist at Daily Maverick’s Investigative Team Scorpio Pauli Van Wyk shares her take on it.
From a legal point of view, it has nothing to do with Mr Zuma, he didn't sign the commission into effect so I am actually astounded that his lawyers can actually attempt to go this route.Pauli Van Wyk, Journalist at Daily Maverick’s Investigative Team Scorpio
Even if Zuma did have a legal point to make, it is a mute point because former judge Nugent, the chair of the commission made it very clear, the Nugent Commission's mandate is to investigate governance and administration issues at Sars. According to Nugent, Mr Moyane stands in the way of any reform at Sars, so Mr Ramaphosa took heed to what Nugent found... so for me, this is clear cut and simple. Mr Zuma had no business in filing that affidavit.Pauli Van Wyk, Journalist at Daily Maverick’s Investigative Team Scorpio
