Pretoria – South African Revenue Services (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane says his relationship with Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has not been cordial but strained.

SARS called a media briefing on Friday to respond to reports in the Mail & Guardian of a series of 16 confidential letters between Gordhan and Moyane leading up to the Budget Speech delivered on Wednesday.

The letters reveal the state of the relationship between Moyane and Gordhan, and how Moyane turned to President Jacob Zuma for intervention on four separate occasions, Mail & Guardian reported.
