Top officials, politicians and businessmen of South Africa’s ruling party are facing tax claims of more than R250 million on income earned from Bosasa, the services company at the centre of a widespread graft scandal, the Johannesburg Sunday Times reports.

The South Africa Revenue Service has concluded preliminary investigations that may lead to charges of under-declared income, overstated expenses and other misrepresentations against members of the African National Congress party, Sunday Times said. Those on the Sars list, the newspaper reported, include:

Dudu Myeni, the chairwoman of ousted President Jacob Zuma’s charitable foundation Minister of Environmental Affairs Nomvula Mokonyane Former National Prosecuting Authority prosecutors Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi ANC lawmaker Vincent Smith Former correctional services commissioner Zack Modise

Angelo Agrizzi, Bosasa’s chief operating officer from 1999 to 2016, told a judicial inquiry that’s probing graft during Zuma’s rule that the company paid R300 000 a month to the former leader’s charitable foundation in return for protection from prosecution.

This will take away about 10% of the resentment I feel when filling in tax returns.

If this is true.

Its going to be nice seeing these gangster getting their staff attached. Which is presently in full swig in KZN. The chances of these guys saving for dark day are almost zero.

Wow, SARS finally going after their own kin!!!!

This must an April 1st article because they have audited me for 6 years straight and I am a salaried person (aka no-escape-job).

1. Will you also ask all Bosasa employees to hand in a list of assets so a lifestyle audit can take place?
2. Will those who received money without declaring it be charged like all the ANC scum?

If none of these crooks are prosecuted you will know without doubt that the forseeable future will be an echo of the last decade. Watch carefully and take appropriate action.

Hang on, there is a mistake ! I don’t see the name of Jacob “Fringe Benefits” Zuma ??? Has he declared all his Bosasa “hampers” ??? Jacob, if you read this, please contact SARS ?

There are hundreds of names not on the list. Thousands even. Not even one Gupta.

LOL, more window dressing- not one of these Anc big wigs has spent a day in jail. the pigging out will continue
Oh ,and why have Guptas not been extradited ? their is an extradition agreement between ZAR and Dubai for over a year now.

Total BS. They will never be (genuinely) investigated.
