EFF calls on Ramaphosa to remove Pravin Gordhan from Cabinet

Pravin Gordhan

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to remove Minister Pravin Gordhan from his Cabinet after he admitted he motivated for the establishment of a South African Revenue Service (Sars) investigating unit.

During his testimony at the state capture commission on Monday, Gordhan acknowledged a unit was set up to investigate the illegal smuggling of cigarettes and illicit trade but maintained it was all above board.

The red berets want the public enterprises minister’s immediate removal accusing him of espionage and of turning Sars into a spy unit.

The EFF’s Vuyani Pambo said Gordhan’s actions represented a breach of the country’s democracy.
