Cape Town – The South African Revenue Service (Sars) paid KPMG over R23m for its highly-contested probe into its investigation unit which was founded when Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan was Sars commissioner.

The information was submitted on Tuesday by Gordhan on behalf of Sars, in response to a written Parliamentary question tabled by Economic Freedom Fighters MP Floyd Shivambu.
