The South African Revenue Service says it is still struggling to recover millions of rand in legal costs from former commissioner Tom Moyane.

He was suspended in March 2018.

President Cyril Ramaphosa subsequently fired Moyane following the recommendation of Judge Robert Nugent in his report compiled after a commission of inquiry into SARS.

According to the report, immediate action was needed to forestall any further deterioration of the country’s tax administration system.

In a letter to Moyane, Ramaphosa said the report painted a deeply concerning picture of the current state of SARS and the reckless mismanagement which characterised Moyane’s tenure at SARS.

Earlier, Morning Live spoke to SARS Commissioner Edward Kieswetter on the current state of the revenue service.
