READ: Moyane's full letter to Ramaphosa

Cape Town – "I am advised that your conduct invites urgent legal review and would obviously be overturned by the Courts," now suspended SA Revenue Service head Tom Moyane wrote to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday. 

Moyane wrote the letter to the president in an attempt to stop his suspension. The President announced Moyane's suspension to the press late on Monday evening. 

"The basis of your decision was solely based on your allegation that I have mishandled the Makwakwa matter and that I took an unreasonable amount of time acting against Mr. Makwakwa,' he wrote. 

Moyane wrote that news the president wanted him to step down over his handling of Makwakwa came as a surprise, as Parliament "is currently seized with the matter". 

"... it seems to me that you have developed your view without being in possession of all the necessary documents, such as all the relevant correspondence, investigation reports and outcomes of disciplinary proceedings against Makwakwa," he wrote. 

Mark Kingon, meanwhile, has been appointed to head SARS in an acting capacity.
