CAPE TOWN – Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene has extended the term of acting South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Mark Kingon for a further 90 days.

“Section 7 of the SARS Act empowers the Minister of Finance to appoint an acting commissioner. The President, however, appoints a permanent Commissioner,” Treasury said in a statement.

Kingon was appointed acting commissioner following the suspension of Tom Moyane.
