Dirty tricks to discredit me, says key witness against Zuma

Forensic auditor claims that despite KPMG apology there is good evidence that SARS rogue unit did exist.

A senior financial investigator lined up to be a key prosecution witness in the state’s forthcoming corruption trial against former President Jacob Zuma believes there is a political campaign under way to discredit him and get him off the case.

The rogue unit had a name: TCEI - Preliminary Investigations and Enquiries. Believe me this is not BS. They had or still have 2 tasks: Investigate any tax related fraud and covering up for anything their senior officials are involved in.
