ROGUE UNIT SAGA
Showdown looms between public protector and Pravin Gordhan
A major court showdown looms between public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane and Pravin Gordhan as the public enterprises minister prepares to challenge her report on the so-called SA Revenue Service’s (Sars’s) "rogue unit".
Mkhwebane called for criminal prosecution against Gordhan (https://www.businesslive.co.za/bd/national/2019-07-05-gordhan-fights-back-against-mkhwebanes-rogue-unit-findings/) on Friday when she released a report on her findings that Gordhan had helped to set up and run the unit to spy on politicians in violation of the constitution. Gordhan was the head of the tax collection agency at the time.
