Members of Parliament’s finance committee are not satisfied with the way South African Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane has dealt with the matter of SARS head of business and individual tax Jonas Makwakwa. Makwakwa returned to work at SARS recently from a year of suspension as a result of a Financial Intelligence Centre report regarding suspicious deposits in his bank account. The report identified 75 unusual and suspicious cash deposits, totalling R1.2m, into his account between March 2010 and January 2016. Committee chairman Yunus Carrim said the way Moyane had managed the affair “left a lot to be desired”. Even if Makwakwa were innocent and Moyane had acted in good faith, “a person in your role should not be behaving like this”.
