IFP Welcomes Decision by SARS Commissioner to Step Down

12 July 2013    

  

 

The Inkatha Freedom Party has welcomed the decision by South African Revenue Services(SARS) Commissioner, Mr Oupa Magashula to resign from office.

 

IFP spokesperson on finance, Mr Narend Singh said, "It is critical that the institutional integrity of SARS is maintained, and therefore the resignation of Commissioner Magashula must be welcomed. SARS can ill-afford scandal and controversy by any of its officials. The institution must remain beyond reproach as it deals with tax payers hard-earned incomes for the betterment of the country and not the unqualified enrichment of cronies of SARS officials."

 

The IFP commends the Minister of Finance on the swift action taken in this instance.
