Foreign consultants deliberately maimed Sars. They must pay, says SA consultant
Consultants have an ethical duty to their clients and society at large… in cases where things go wrong, there can be good cause for money to be paid back…Stephen Rothgiesser, Managing Director - The Change Consulting Group
Rebuilding the gutted South African Revenue Service (Sars) is a challenge, Commissioner Edward Kieswetter told Parliament on Tuesday.
He was updating the Standing Committee on Finance on the implementation of the Nugent Commission’s recommendations.
The pain and trauma of employees are real. When you look into their eyes and you listen to them, you can tell it’s not simply a report to them. This is their lived experience and the trauma they experienced during that period.Edward Kieswetter, Commissioner - South African Revenue Service
Kieswetter said his predecessor Tom Moyane and international consultancy Bain deliberately rendered Sars incapable of serving its mandate.
