LISTEN: Sars was used to exonerate Jacob Zuma and his cronies - Jacque Pauw

The author of a new book that reveals damning claims surrounding Nklosazana Dlamini-Zuma's campaign, as well as a network of people who have apparently kept President Jacob Zuma out of prison, says his sources are credible.

In the _Presidents Keeper, _veteran journalist and author Jacques Pauw reveals explosive details.

Citing people he says are 'impecible' sources, Pauw states that President Zuma was paid R 1 million a month for a period in his first term as President, by a security company owned by Roy Moodley.

The book continues to detail how the President failed to submit tax returns in the first five years of his Presidency, and how his son Edward Zuma was paid monthly by suspected tobacco smugglers for his political influence.

Speaking on the Zuma's influence over the SA Revenue Service (Sars), Pauw says he has documents related to a meeting with then Sars acting commissioner Ivan Pillay urging the President to pay his taxes.

This is also contained in documents I have that the first term meeting between then Sars acting commissioner Ivan Pillay and Jacob Zuma himself, where the President was urged to please submit his tax returns and less than a year later the top structure of Sars was gone.

The new Sars being the regime of Tom Moyane, it is possible after Tom Moyane took power he helped Jacob Zuma to become tax compliant.

Jacques Pauw, author and journalist

Pauw says the crux of his book is on the destruction of law enforcement agencies.

I do make the statement in my book where the destruction of Sars is concerned it was certainly to exonerate Jacob Zuma and his cronies.

Jacques Pauw, author and journalist

Investigation after investigation of Zuma cronies at Sars fell apart after Moyane took power...Mazotte had a tax bill of R 600 million, that investigation went nowhere.

It’s also emerged that Adriano Mazzotti is a contributor to Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma's presidential campaign.

The Sunday Times is reporting that Mazzotti, a controversial cigarette manufacturer, presented Dlamini-Zuma with an array of election paraphernalia, including election caps and shirts.

Pauw says Mazzotti has funded political campaigns in the past.

He said yesterday that he has never given money fro any political campaign, well he admits in his affidavit that he has given money for political campaigns.

Jacques Pauw, author and journalist

The book also details links between President Zuma, tobacco manufacturer Yusuf Kajee, and convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti, and so much more.

The Presidency has denied the allegations and says Zuma has declared all income received to the relevant authorities.
