[LISTEN] Presidency says Moyane failed to substantiate why he should not be axed

President Cyril Ramaphosa has detailed the reasons for behind his decision to axe Tom Moyane as the commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (Sars).

Ramaphosa announced on Thursday that he has heeded the recommendations of the Nugent Commission of Inquiry, which submitted its interim report at the end of September.

Retired judge Robert Nugent and his assistants unanimously agreed that Moyane does not have the character of a person fit to lead Sars and he should be removed from office as a matter of urgency.

Presidency Spokesperson Khusela Diko says Moyane failed to give substantial reasons as to why the president should not apply the recommendations.

The president afforded Mr Moyane an opportunity to make submission in terms of why he should not implement the recommendations, primarily that Mr Moyane should have his services as commissioner of Sars terminated. Mr Moyane has made has submission, the president feels that he has failed to put substantive reasons on why these recommendations should not be heeded and accepted.

Moyane has also failed to answer to a lot of the allegations and evidence that has come up in the commission and has made no attempt to clear up what would have been seen as systematic failures at Sars.
