South African revenue service to discipline ex-boss, Tom Moyane

South Africa’s revenue service said it will take disciplinary actions against Tom Moyane, its former boss for misconduct during his stay.

Tom Moyane who is a close associate of South Africa’s former President, Jacob Zuma.

Tom Moyane was removed in March by President Cyril Ramaphose after saying he had lost confidence in Moyane’s ability to lead the agency. The president took that step after Moyane refused to step down.

Days after Zuma ally Moyane was suspended, rating agency Moody’s affirmed South Africa’s investment-grade credit rating.

Moody’s said the changes at the South African Revenue Service and cabinet had set the economy on a positive path.
On Friday, the president’s office said Moyane would face the charges over his alleged misconduct in violation of his duties and responsibilities in terms of the revenue service Act.

“The disciplinary inquiry relates to alleged leadership and organisational failures,” the president’s office said.
