Johannesburg – Suspended South African Revenue Service Commissioner Tom Moyane has continued making demands on President Cyril Ramaphosa in an attempt to alter the terms of his disciplinary inquiry.

The latest request from Moyane is for Judge Kate O’Regan to recuse herself from presiding over his inquiry for fear she might not be able to be unbiased and fair.

Moyane argues that because O’Regan is a board member of civil organisation Corruption Watch, she will not be able to give him a fair hearing as the organisation had been on a campaign to have him removed from Sars.

It Could be recalled that The former Constitutional Court justice is also the member of the advisory board at the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution.

The disgraced commissioner’s lawyers have written to both Ramaphosa and O’Regan and have given her until Friday to respond to their requests for her recusal.

He has threatened to approach the court if his requests were not met.

Eric Mabuza, Moyane’s lawyer, said his client had the right to a fair hearing and that there should not be any doubt that he would be treated otherwise.

President Yoweri Museveni has ordered the refunding of 1% percent mobile money tax paid by Ugandans.

In a statement issued on a social media platform , Museveni insists that the 1 per cent tax which he ordered to be reduced to 0.5 percent last week was passed in error and he signed the bill knowing it had an error.

The mobile money tax and social media tax which triggered massive outcry were effected at the start of 2018/19 financial year.

“I signed the law with the error because we could not delay the other measures. However, parliament, when it reconvenes, will be requested to correct it. The ones whose deductions had been made on the basis of 1% should have their money reimbursed,” said Museveni.

Apart from salary earners and those who use banks, Museveni said the earnings of many other Ugandans are not known. He revealed that each day, $52 million moves around in the form of mobile money that translates into $19 billion a year.

The sentences can be appealed.

An investigation found that doctors, medical workers and intermediaries were involved in multiple incidents of illicit organ transplants and harvesting of human organs.

The probe found that the defendants exploited poor Egyptians who sold their organs.

Egypt prohibits the sale of human organs under a 2010 law but some Egyptians, driven by poverty, offer to sell theirs to make ends meet.
