SARS Seeks To End Speculation On Gordhan's Future

by Robert Lee, Tax-News.com, London

11 June 2008


The South African Revenue Service on Monday sought to dampen speculation with regard to SARS Commissioner, Pravin Gordhan's career plans when his time with the tax authority comes to an end next November.

In a statement, SARS explained that:

"Various media reports have claimed that the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (SARS), Mr. Pravin Gordhan, will be appointed as the next national Commissioner of the South African Police Service."

"In other instances it was reported that Commissioner Gordhan may be appointed to other government departments or to lead an international organization."

"These reports were largely based on information from unidentified “sources” to the extent that it is not possible to challenge such speculation."

The statement concluded:

"When SARS was asked to comment on these claims the response has been consistent and unambiguous:

  • The contract of Commissioner Gordhan expires at the end of November 2009
  • He has not been approached by anyone to consider any other position in the public service
  • He has not expressed an interest to become the next national Commissioner of SAPS

SARS trusts this statement will put any further speculation to rest."
