Tom Moyane faces 12 charges of alleged wrongdoing in violation of his responsibilities interrelated to his supervision of accusations against Jonas Makwakwa, making unlawful bonus payments, misleading Parliament and instructing a SARS official not to cooperate with an inquiry by audit firm KPMG.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has rejected a request. First and foremost, Cyril Ramaphosa had offered Tom Moyane six months’ salary instead of his resignation. This was later increased to a full year’s salary as part of the settlement agreement, but Tom Moyane rejected this offer and threatened legal action.

Cyril Ramaphosa has also rejected a demand that the government must pay for Moyane’s defence in the disciplinary inquiry. President Cyril Ramaphosa suspended Tom Moyane in March awaiting a disciplinary commission of inquiry headed by retired Judge Kate O’Regan.
