SARS helps Mpisanes duck and dive - again

The Durban-based tender tycoons get a helping hand from the taxman.

Over the past eight years, Durban’s infamous bling couple Shauwn and S’bu Mpisane, have tried every conceivable trick to outwit the taxman – from bribing officials and hiding assets, to frivolous court actions – all to stall for time. And it would appear that SARS has been only too keen to help them along.

As previously reported in Noseweek, SARS has already tried to help the Mpisanes out of trouble by scrapping a criminal investigation and waiving massive tax debt through the swish of a pen in unofficial meetings.

The Mpisanes – who incidentally are divorcing – owe about R141m in taxes both personally and through their various companies.
