The key witness, noted by Pravil Gordhan, told the Sunday Times that he was never a member of the South African Tax Service (SARS) as a "fraudulent unit" in a public company report published by Publilc Protector Busiswe Mkhwebane.
In fact, Keletso Bizoski Manyike actually worked as a legal interpreter in the Department of Legal Administration and Policy at Sarsa and later in debt collection. Mkhwebane's report, in which he claims that Gordhan was the main supporter of Sars's "fraudulent unit", mentions Manyika as a former specialist Sars.
Manyike told Sunday Times he did not know that he was presented in the report, and that the public protector had to be confused because he was never involved in the unit.
Manyike told the publication that he filed a complaint with the Public Security Office in 2014 after being dismantled in Sars. He told the Sunday Times that as part of his complaint, he submitted a "dossier" for 2010, allegedly prepared by a disgraced former official Sars Michael Peega, who claimed that Sars was a "fraudulent unit".
Thuli Madonsella, who was then a public protector, told Manyook that she should contact the Commission for Reconciliation, Mediation and Arbitration, where she lost the case. Later he resigned from Sars and is currently unemployed.
Peega was fired from Sars after he was a rhino catcher, as City Press says. Peega and the late Leonard Radebe were presented in a confidential report in 2009 when they called for documentation Broken Arrow which was published in several iterations to assume that the disguised investigative unit on the commission was disgusting and that racism was expanded, Fin24 reports.
Peega was a member of the National Research Group Sars (NRG) and was on leave when he was arrested on the Christmas year 2008 as a suspect in the Rhinelander Rhinos union. Radebe was the main operational officer and resigned after he came to the world with ties to Dave King and Glenn Agliotti.
Sunday Times reported that Mkhwebane never contacted Manyike to discuss the documentation. He said that the only time he was called by the Public Guardian's office was to ask him if Peegine had contacts that he said he was not.
Mkhwebane found in his report that Gordhan was guilty of an irregularity and violated the provisions of the National Strategic Law on Intelligence, as well as the Constitution, to set up an intelligence unit on Sars in 2007, says News24.
Gordhan was SARS Commissioner between 2001 and 2009.
The public protector recommended a measure to be taken by President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the National Assembly Thandi Modise, State Security Minister Ayanda Dlodlo, National Public Prosecutor's Office Shamila Batohi and Police Commissioner Kehl Sithole.
The Sunday Times wrote that Mkhwebane copied the word for the word of the charges contained in Broken Arrow but attributes them to Manyike.
Gordhan filed documents in an urgent offer to prevent Mkhwebane's remedial measures.
