Malema owes R16m in tax - report

2012-09-23 13:13

Johannesburg - The SA Revenue Service (Sars) has obtained a R16m judgment against former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema for unpaid taxes, according to a report on Sunday.

The judgment was obtained in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on 11 September, City Press says. (Full report)

Malema did not oppose the application by Sars.

Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay confirmed the judgment against Malema for R16m was obtained.

He told the newspaper the amount included unpaid taxes, penalties and interest.

Lackay said he could not give any more details of Malema's tax affairs because a "taxpayer's confidentiality is a legal obligation imposed on Sars".

According to the report Sars was about to seize Malema's property and assets in Gauteng and Limpopo.

'Hell of a lot of money'

Alan Lewis, a tax law consultant and advocate, told City Press the judgment showed two things: Malema had a "hell of a lot of money" and he was in deep trouble.

Lewis, a former Sars employee, said the revenue service would most likely hand the judgment to a sheriff of the court, who would attach Malema's properties and assets.

Sars started looking into Malema's tax affairs last year after it was revealed that he was linked to companies which had obtained lucrative contracts from the Limpopo provincial government.

Millions of rands were channelled through Malema's Ratanang Family Trust, according to the report.

      BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! @Davy.crocket.5209

      thabang.bonang.7 - 2012-09-25 10:58

      @davy.crockett.5209, when President Zuma was asked at Parliament how He was planning to deal with Malema He said that they are working on something relating to Malema and the public will know soon. Now we all see what He meant. This would mean He is part of the conspirancy to bring Malema down.

      johand.dutoit - 2012-09-25 12:17

      davy.crockett.5209 & thabang.bonang.7 - What you guys are actually saying is that all the charges,brought against your hero,are trumped up charges?

  • neo.motsepe - 2012-09-23 13:20

    Thanks SARS, who's next to add up to Zuma's 2nd term boost?

      nikondaniel - 2012-09-23 13:21

      so wtf? u blame SARS?!?!?

      neo.motsepe - 2012-09-23 13:41

      I'm not defending a crime. The timing of all this, is just so convinient for Zuma. He[Zuma] is just pushing state organs to silence Malema. A crime is a crime, consequences should follow.

      Notrax123 - 2012-09-23 14:05

      @ Neo.motsepe, I must agree with you on this point. I am not a Malema fan but the timing is rather suspisious. There must be illegality in which Malema accrued his wealth - I believe at the expence of service delivery. What is shocking is that the state will protect these crimminals as long as they praise the state, as soon as they challenge the state then all their sins are revealed. How many more "fat cats" are there? being protected by the state.

      azande.futhi - 2012-09-23 14:23

      Ja nhe. There is definitely something creepy about the recent spate of prosecution attempts against Malema. Somebody is pouring the fuel from the top. A lot will end up in the fire, including the ones that are now pouring the fuel. I cant wait to see the outcome of this circus.

      thulasizwe.mthethwa - 2012-09-23 14:55

      Ya is so does smell rotten but THERE IS NO RIGHT TIME for unveiling the CRIME...2 years AGO would have been "He is being silenced for pushing the nationalization mandate" or "He is being silenced for his Kill the Boer song"....so the TIMING is ALWAYS going to be questionable. The only good thing about this is THAT FINALLY he has to answer about this.

      eugene.meyer1980 - 2012-09-23 17:44

      So Neo, maybe next time vote DA if you dont like Zuma.

      lsfreak - 2012-09-23 22:45

  • klasgoran.olsson - 2012-09-23 13:20

    Woow, and he has aspirations to become a leader in ANC again, and in the longer run he wants to be the president of the nation. Paying taxes is the way to contribute to the construction of a welfare state...To try to cheat with taxes goes the other way...By acting like this, if it is true, he show he is a bad rolemodel and don not deserve any leading position at all.

      klasgoran.olsson - 2012-09-23 14:29

      Well David. I don´t think we shall generelize this bad behaviour to all members in the ANC. I am sure there are many in lower positions with good values and intentions to work for a better society.

      Michael, its Juju. No matter when it happens, he would be stepping on someone's toes so there will ALWAYS be something that looks suspicious. But, if they have the evidence, then they have the evidence. A crime has been comitted and that means someone must pay the boatman. I do agree though, Malema is the tip of the ice berg. Sure there is tons more to discover :P

  • Desilusionada - 2012-09-23 13:25

    At 30% tax (assuming it is not VAT), that is +/- R50 million income? Ok so there are fines etc also. Point is, how does a R 20 000.00 pm incomer get in charge of, never mind being personally responsible for, 50 bar? Taking into account his brilliant achievements in woodwork, which makes him eminently well qualified. Now if that little fat KFC supporter can do that is such as a short time, then what do we need schoolbooks or schools for? He should go on the lecture circuit to spread the secrets of his economic freedom, and (if we can collect the tax), all poverty can be eradicated. Makes one shudder to think what the rest of the corrupt lot are up to........

      hans.dewaal.5 - 2012-09-24 16:53

      I agree, I can distinctly remember Malema denying in a news conference a year or so back that he has never even earned one million rand "I have never even seen one million with my naked eye" he said. So this makes him a liar as he must have seen his bank statements / balances / luxury car invoices showing how much he has earned or paid for his lavish lifestyle. He is a liar and a thief depriving the poor and un-educated of a better life by siphoning off large amounts of cash from fraudulent tenders and back hands. Imagine what he could have done with 50 000 000 to enrich the poor. Build a school, bought school books but no...lets buy blue label and another breitling watch and screw the people that idolises me and eating below the breadline every night. I hope he gets no mercy and serve jail time (heaven forbid if he also develops a terminal illness thereafter)

  • mxolisi.nala - 2012-09-23 13:27

    last time they said he owed R25m this time it's R16m. Sars simply help malema to escape prison.

      all the dislikes come from white people, no doubt. you people must learn african languages. you dislike something simply coz dnt understand what it says. shame on yal.

      zeepolar - 2012-09-23 14:41

      let me translate for you ignorant people: it means "there is trouble brewing for this young man. he will be left with nothing but his underwear wen they take all the he has. he is reaping all the fruits of being disrespectful. his friends are next. " now you should all be ashamed of yourselves. go study african languages.

      mike.boylen - 2012-09-23 15:15

      @Zeepolar. Far from being ignorant, I am fluent in French, German and Russian, and speak a fair amount of Italian. If I make a comment on a French language site I use French, and so on. This is an English site. There is also a News24 site available for isiZulu. To use an African language on an English site is the height of bad manners, and to abuse people for disliking it shows ignorance and contempt.

      magdaleen.smuts - 2012-09-23 15:22

      @Zeepolar. Thanks for filling us in. So sad you had to be so rude. YOu could have built a bridge but you prefer to sound like the "old school whites" telling every black person that he must speak afrikaans when talking to them. I always asked my fellow afrikaner if he can speak any african language belittleling them in the same way they belittled others. Do not stoop as low as those you dislike/hate for the obvious reason as it makes you no different.

      dimitripappas - 2012-09-23 15:23

      Zeepolar, I'm afraid you've got it wrong. African languages are only spoken in Africa -- namely, Zulu is only spoken in SOUTH Africa. It makes much more sense that your African friend learns English than we learn Zulu, because then your African friend will have learned a language that will be useful for him, that he can actually use to communicate with almost anywhere in the world. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Zulu, but by your logic every person in this country should be able to speak all 11 official languages? Well FYI that's IMPOSSIBLE. So instead we should all learn the primary language, and guess what, that's English. It's like me telling you to learn Afrikaans, seriously... But, thanks for the translation - that's more like it.

      emile.marais - 2012-09-24 02:20

      Zeepolar ignore these idiots. Thanks for the translation, much appreciated.

      johand.dutoit - 2012-09-25 12:26

      Zeepolar- Why do you call us ignorant for not knowing an african language? This is an English page & although some people write Afrikaans here most of the people can read & understand it! I don't read or comment on something in papers I cannot understand but it's not to say I am ignorant! I speak two languages & understand two others!

  • GullibleX - 2012-09-23 13:28

    Oh Puhleeeez !!! This dude is going to pay that 16million rand without blinking his eye and continue with his crap! How about a compulsory jail term + 16million rand fine. that sounds more like it!

      Notrax123 - 2012-09-23 14:12

      Correction: His masters are going to pay the 16 million.

      tobydt - 2012-09-23 15:00

      His masters cant pay the R52 mill that Thuli wants to take back from him.

      dimitripappas - 2012-09-23 15:27

      The same way that Zulu king got his R18 mansion (the part of the story that we haven't all heard yet), so too will Malema get R16mil assistance from the ANC

      merven.halo - 2012-09-25 07:21

  • annelene.munro - 2012-09-23 13:35

    Wednesday will be very interesting ... Malema might come up with the cash,(to owe SARS R16 million you must have had the income .. so some of it must be stashed away somewhere ...) or bargain with SARS, making an offer .. after all - he has a very very smart lawyer, so I do not imagine that Malema will go to jail at all

      Eric Mdudus Shaku - 2012-09-23 13:44

      With cash coming from where? Also that cash must taxed.

      annelene.munro - 2012-09-23 14:05

      Hi Eric, Sars has insight into all our financial income... you cannot hide anything these days .. if SARS billed Malema with a R16 million tax account .. they must have the relative information and proof that he received that amount of income to warrant paying such income tax .. if their information incorrect, this will obviously be proved on Wednesday .. as the saying goes .. you are innocent until proved guilty ...

  • siphom.mnguni - 2012-09-23 13:43

    Let me start this comment by categorically stating that I'm not Malema fan, neither, the FYL for their acerbic tongues and their crude language. By as a concerned citizen of the country I feel compelled to add my two cents comment at the timing used in this drama. First it was reported that there was an arrest warrant applied for by the SARS, but SARS denied that. Then it was0 reported that NPA confirmed that it was in fact the police who applied for it. Then I read the news that he has appointed \white top lawyer\. In my ignorant world I asked if it was important to mention the race of the lawyer. Lo and behold, it was further mentioned that she was a female and Greek. I asked myself as to what happened to arch-bishop Desmond Tutu's \Rainbow people of God\. As if that was not enough, now we are informed that he owes R16m in tax, interest and fines and that there is a jugment obtained against him. I'm no conspiracy theories fan, but this one makes me think!

      mxolisi.nala - 2012-09-23 13:56

      what you must know about news24 is they wanna make money out of Malema by giving news that whites wanna hear. if ever there is a white farmer who gets killed they report it, but they never report farmers who abuse black workers in their farms. they can be ignorant or arrogant,but we know whats going on in S.A. they can arrest malema but the youth won't be quiet about these issues.

      Conrad Janse van Rensburg - 2012-09-23 14:02

    Why is this judgement only being obtained now??? Why not months ago? It seems it would have been overlooked or just written off or allocated to us tax payers had he not caused such a lot of crap at Marikana! \r\n\r\nMany of the things that Julius has said have substance. However he needs to be brought to book. He is a little lion challenging the big lions. As in nature beware these little lions grow up.\r\n\r\nLet's hope he covers his own legal fees and that it is not left to the tax payer as with other Government criminals.

  • mike.clery - 2012-09-23 13:57

    This SARS judgement against him was on 11 September according to the article, and is *only* related to non-payment of tax owed. There are still the corruption, fraud and money-laundering issues outstanding. Also, SARS could still charge him with the criminal act of tax evasion. These investigations have been going on for some time, so even if the timing is suspicious, it's more likely that pressure's been applied to hurry up with the cases than anything else.

      @sunedity, look at how Malema manages to manipulate the illiterate poor masses into believing that he is innocent but silenced and targeted simply because he is fighting for them. You know dangerous masses especially illiterate can be. Civil wars can break out and the country might turn into turmoil. Us against them with total disregard of the facts put on the table about the corrupt tendencies of Malema. I’m checking the bigger yet disturbing picture.

Dude, you can not even put a descent English sentence together, so you are not educated, that means only one of two things: 1. You're a rich criminal or 2. You're a ANC tender buddy (which is basically the same as number 1)

    Why they only started investigating Malema only now.thisi is not about justice it's about ppl fighting using state resource

      tobydt - 2012-09-23 14:03

      The investigation started at least two years ago already. The SARS debt has been known for a few months.

      ntloko.yamazizi - 2012-09-23 14:09

      This was after he made it clear that he is not supporting sm leaders.

      sirthulani - 2012-09-23 14:29

      No don't worry about when they have started investigation,the dude is going and you will get used to the fact..gone and forgoten!!

      christopher.collings.9 - 2012-09-23 15:03

      Why not?

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-09-23 15:25

      Ntloko.not-a-bright-spark ~ They've been investigating the bloated tick for more than a year already or did you think they woke up yesterday and the thought to arrest him just popped into their heads?

      merven.halo - 2012-09-25 07:32

      @Irene, don't use such big words, ntloko is going to have to affirmative shop for a dictionary.

  • njannies - 2012-09-23 14:04

    Juju...tisk tisk, didn't you know... SARS doesn't discriminate!

      neo.motsepe - 2012-09-23 14:16

      Who is SARS..

      azande.futhi - 2012-09-23 14:36

      @neo, the guy that Malema failed to pay R16 Million. HAHAHAHAHAHA

      ntloko.yamazizi - 2012-09-23 14:41

      You wish SARS does not discriminate

      merven.halo - 2012-09-25 07:33

      @neo, you wouldn't know, when you guys do tender fraud you don't declare it to that green monster called SARS. Maybe you'll meet him one day.

  • douglas.reid.921 - 2012-09-23 14:05

    He is desperate to get political power so he can squash the charges against him. He is playing a big and risky game. He got away with everything till now cause he was untouchable with his connections. Now he purposely lost his political buddies and lost his indemnity in the process. Shows us one thing, he is a very silly little boy. Don't even think the white madam can save him now. Going to be the laughing stock of the country.

      bheki.hlabangani.7 - 2012-09-23 14:11

      It is time for him to it his poison,where does he got all his money

  • tobydt - 2012-09-23 14:05

    Hehe, who's going to buy up Juju's house when it goes up for auction?

      gretchen.oswald.3 - 2012-09-23 14:36

      Floyd Shivambo or Sindiso Magapa...........

      tobydt - 2012-09-23 14:50

      gretchen - Where will they get the cash without their sugar-daddy?

      gretchen.oswald.3 - 2012-09-23 15:31

      They will steal the money, just like sugar daddy did and probably taught them to do too.

  • nino.diana.12 - 2012-09-23 14:07

    Julius Malema, what have you done for your supporters ? Only blah,blah,blah ...... The money you owe SARS could have built YOUR SUPPORTERS 16000 new homes .... Yet you have done nothing for them except blah,blah,blah..... I hope one leader amongst them will see that your idiotic speeches tantamount that you are nothing but a fat empty vessel that promises new pastures .... And the funny thing is most of them believe you .... Time for one of your supporters to take you on one on one on a TV debate and ask where and how you became a multi- millionaire at your age..... All backhanders I suspect... We will soon find out ...... Hopefully

  • jeremy.forbes.1293 - 2012-09-23 14:11

    A deal will be made with Malema, in exchange for his silence he will come off lightly i.e. his tax liability reduced and he stays out of prison. The other thieves needed this in order to arrange his silence less he spills all the beans and brings to light their criminality.

  • Notrax123 - 2012-09-23 14:15

    SARS demanding their share of illegaly earned monies????? How noble of them.

  • nabeel.roberts.5 - 2012-09-23 14:16

    anthrax to all friends, family and associates!!!\r\nstarting cleaning up this country of the filth who are using our oxygen.

  • glen.e.huysamer - 2012-09-23 14:19

    So, when is ZARS going to start arresting all the rest of the ANC corrupt? Or is it just JuJU month this month? I am sure if ZARS is acting independently, without fear or favor, that at least half the ANC and their alliance partners should also be up for arrest warrants soon????? But we all know it is politically motivated, South Africa's citizens would just like to see this type of ZARS action taken across the entire political board, obviously they can't.........because they would probably, effectively shut down the ANC 'Ruling Party' all together.

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-24 22:37

      Who is that we yopu referring to. I dont support your theory so dont say we say I and dont make assumptions.

  • fdalana - 2012-09-23 14:19

    econimic freedom at its best.

  • Paul - 2012-09-23 14:19

    Will get off scott free if he desists in promoting the downfall of Zuma.

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-24 22:40

      Zuma does not need Malema.He has already won a second term while Malema will be languishing in jail. I notice you are trying to avoid this eventuality by consoling yourself.

  • tony.giloi - 2012-09-23 14:20

    If he can get away with tax up to now, how many other people also owe SARS money? I bet a lot of the super rich know how to hide money or do dodge moves.Also people working for themselves and asking for cash payments no trail.

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-24 22:42

      Why dont you report them to the authorities. You maybe rewarded. You will also be helping our country.

  • rui.d.barros.7 - 2012-09-23 14:21

    This cannot be!!!! Malema is an Economic Freedom Fighter President- he should be poor like the rest of us.

      khethu.ndlovu.3 - 2012-09-23 14:25

      No he should not be poor, was pw botha poor when he promoted white supremecy here?

      tobydt - 2012-09-23 14:35

      And out comes the apartheid card to try and justify corruption and fraud :P
