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.
