This is in line with a finding of the Nugent commission of inquiry into the tax authority

Finance minister Tito Mboweni has come out in support of the SA Revenue Service having an “intrusive” investigating unit.

In a written reply to a parliamentary question by EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, Mboweni said he endorsed the submission made by the Treasury to the Nugent Commission in 2018, which stated that “enforcement powers that are also intrusive are necessary for any tax collection agency”. “I am sure the honourable member will also agree that Sars must have significant intrusive powers, not only to deal with taxpayers concealing information on income received, but also to counter illegitimate trades in commodities such as tobacco, liquor and counterfeit goods,” Mboweni said.

Parliament welcomes SIU raid over failed Giyani water projectParliament's water and sanitation committee on Monday welcomed a raid by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) on the Lepelle Northern Water Board offices in Polokwane. The state water implementing agency was not co-operating with the investigation, he said. 'Some of the senior officials even went to court in an attempt to stop the investigation.' No, not some. CEO Phineas Legodi went to court to try interdict SIU from investigating further. There have been newspapers and journalists hell bent on killing this story and running narrative for the CEO.
