Mischievous to link Zuma to SARS turmoil - The Presidency

Strong exception taken to the allegations made by WCape Premier Helen Zille (Dec 16)

Allegations in relation to SARS

16 December 2014

The Presidency takes strong exception to the allegations made by Premier Helen Zille of the Western Cape linking the President to the suspension of some staff members in the South African Revenue Service, (SARS).

We have noted attempts in some newspapers as well to drag the President into the same matter.

The President has nothing to do with any of the allegations levelled against the staff members of SARS and linking him to this matter is pure mischief.
