ANC welcomes Magashula’s resignation

ANC Statement

The African National Congress welcomes the resignation of the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Services (SARS) Comrade Oupa Magashule announced yesterday, 12 July 2013. As an organisation, we respect his decision to relinquish his post in the face of controversy and place the people of South Africa and the reputation and integrity of SARS and government broadly ahead of his own deployment interests.

The ANC further commends the decisive action that had been taken by the Minister of Finance, Comrade Pravin Gordhan, to conduct an investigation when allegations of impropriety and misconduct were first levelled against the Commissioner. Such action was a clear demonstration of our commitment to rid our country of the scourge of corruption and spare no effort to ensure our people’s confidence is maintained in SARS and the government.
