Lawyers of suspended SARS commissioner Tom Moyane are preparing for a legal battle against president Cyril Ramaphosa. This is after he failed to meet Wednesday’s deadline to submit an affidavit detailing disciplinary charges against Moyane.

Moyane has been suspended on the grounds of accusations of gross misconduct over his handling of an investigation into former senior SARS official Jonas Makwakwa.

President Ramaphosa’s lawyers undertook to submit his affidavit substantiating the allegations of misconduct against Moyane by June 8th but failed to meet the deadline.

Moyane’s lawyer Eric Mabuza says the president’s conduct is unacceptable.
