Cape Town - South African Revenue Service (Sars) Commissioner Tom Moyane invited Jonas Makwakwa to be part of a parliamentary delegation in August, with the knowledge of the internal investigation as well as the allegations against him.

DA MP David Maynier on Wednesday asked Moyane why he allowed the now suspended Makwakwa to attend a meeting with Parliament’s Standing Committee on Finance, despite being aware of a report that suspicious cash payments had been made into the official’s bank account.
