CAPE TOWN – Fully restoring the reputation of the SA Revenue Service (Sars) in the eyes of the public will require the urgent appointment of a permanent commissioner of Sars.
This is according to the Alf Lees MP, The DA shadow deputy minister of finance, who said the identification of a new Sars Commissioner must be completely transparent and must be based solely on merit.
President Cyril Ramaphosa’s dismissal of embattled SA Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane was on Thursday confirmed by presidential spokesperson Khusile Diko in a brief telephone interview with Business Report.
This after Moyane had written to the president, asking him to reject a recommendation that he be fired, after Ramaphosa asked Moyane to officially provide reasons, by October 26, why he should not be fired.
Moyane had given the President until November 9 to respond to his letter.
