Moyane fights for his job

The former South African Revenue Services (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane will press ahead with an urgent court application next week to be reinstated and interdict a successor from being appointed, despite the Constitutional Court dismissing his case.

President Cyril Ramaphosa recently fired Moyane as recommended in the Nugent commission’s interim report. Moyane had also approached the High Court to have the president's decision reversed until his Constitutional Court application was finalised. This follows the apex court to review and set aside the establishment of the Nugent Commission of Inquiry.

The high court is to consider, but we still need to talk about what is being considered. On the merits of the points they have, they might not be successful in court. The case before the high court is that Moyane does not want any further recommendations from the judge of the Nugent commission to be implemented by president Ramaphosa. He wants to bar the president from advertising the position of the SARS' commissioner.

When judge Nugent gave the recommendations to president Ramaphosa, in the interim report he said that the recommendations of Mr Moyane to be fired and the need for the president to appoint a new commissioner will not change.
