Recordings that have come to light show that the Sars rogue unit narrative is false, says journalist Kyle Cowan.

These recordings are of a meeting in early 2015 just a couple of months after the Sunday Times first started publishing some of these stories about the so-called rogue unit.

Former Sars executives Johan van Loggerenberg, Ivan Pillay and Andries Janse van Rensburg, are due to appear at the Pretoria High Court on Monday for their involvement in the 'rogue' unit and face charges of bugging.

The commissioner of Sars at the time, Mr Tom Moyane, is told in no uncertain terms, by two men who were at the very heart of this so-called rogue unit, that we never bugged President Zuma's house, we never ran a brothel, we didn't buy intelligence equipment, we didn't bug people or follow them around, or dig in their dustbins for information. This is all nonsense.
