‘Protect me from yourself’ – SARS IT head’s bizarre TV interview goes viral

South Africa

An interview with SARS chief officer for digital and IT – Mmamathe Makhekhe-Mokhuane, conducted by SABC News, made rounds on social media after she seemed unable to answer questions about the tax collector’s IT and e-Filing infrastructure.

Makhekhe-Mokhuane failed to give coherent answers to questions about the enormous IT problems at SARS while being interviewed by Sakina Kamwendo on SABC’s Morning Live programme early on Wednesday morning.

The Nugent Commission into the South African Revenue Service (SARS) resumed public hearings on Monday. This week, the Nugent inquiry into SARS heard that the institution’s digital infrastructure was on the verge of collapse after then SARS commissioner Tom Moyane halted a modernisation programme four years ago.

Today, Intikhab Shaik was first to take the stand. He is the group executive of Business Solutions.

The inquiry, which began its work in June, was appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa after he suspended SARS boss Tom Moyane.
