SARSReuters reports that a commission of inquiry reviewing evidence on Tom Moyane, suspended head of the SA Revenue Service (Sars), issued an interim report on Tuesday urging President Cyril Ramaphosa to fire the head of the agency.  

It has been plagued by infighting over the last three years and is subject to ongoing government investigations.  Judge Robert Nugent, who is heading the inquiry into Moyane, said the suspended chief should be removed from office for the “reckless mismanagement of Sars” under his tenure.  “We consider it imperative that a new commissioner be appointed without delay to remove the uncertainty at Sars and enable it to be set on a firm course of recovery so as to arrest ongoing loss of revenue,” Nugent said in the report.  In March, Ramaphosa suspended Moyane, saying he had failed as Sars commissioner and had lost the confidence of taxpayers.  The president’s office said Ramaphosa was weighing up the contents of the interim report and its recommendations.  Moyane, who was appointed in 2014, has faced severe criticism after the agency missed revenue collection targets and faced allegations of corruption and mismanagement.
