Treasury Appoints Mark Kingon As South African Revenue Service Acting Commissioner

He has been with Sars since its establishment and worked his way through the ranks to become the group executive: "relationship management within business and individual taxes", Treasury said.

We wish to thank Mr Kingon for availing himself to serve SARS and the country in this capacity. Hours before his suspension the revenue service lambasted media, saying they were out to ruin the tax collector's reputation, referring to reports which alleged that suspended Moyane, illegally authorised a VAT payment of R70 million to a taxpayer.

Ramaphosa apparently did not take kindly to the threat, announcing Moyane's suspension with immediate effect late on Monday, pending the outcome of a disciplinary process.

The statement by the Presidency added that the suspension had been necessitated by developments in the institution that had led to deterioration in the public confidence.

"It is indisputable that your conduct is unlawful and unconstitutional in that you have made a decision to dismiss or suspend me without affording me an opportunity to be heard", Moyane writes in his letter to Ramaphosa.

Ramaphosa, in the letter, speaks about Moyane's role in failing to ensure the integrity of Sars.

Ramaphosa cited Moyane's poor handling of the Jonas Makwakwa scandal as well as the payment of Value-Added Tax refunds for his decision. Makwakwa, who cited "personal reason" for resigning, is now being investigated by the Hawks for his role in alleged money laundering and corruption.

Moyane, at the helm of the revenue service from 27 September 2014, was considered too close for comfort to the former president Jacob Zuma.

"I therefore have no choice, in the public interest, but to refuse to make the undertaking you ask of me in your letter of March 19".
