Public protector now targets Sars and Edward Kieswetter
Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s office has received two complaints relating to recruitment processes at Sars, one involving Pravin Gordhan
In a fresh investigation, public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has her sights set on Sars and public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan yet again, but this time probing the appointment of Sars commissioner Edward Kieswetter.
Mkhwebane’s spokesperson Oupa Segalwe said the office has received two complaints relating to recruitment processes at the revenue collector. One regards people who have allegedly moved with Gordhan to all the departments he has been in charge of, but are still said to be receiving their salaries from Sars.
