President Cyril Ramaphosa has extended the term of office for the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (SARS), Mr Edward Kieswetter, to two years.

In March 2019, President Ramaphosa appointed Commissioner Kieswetter in terms of Section 6 of the South African Revenue Service Act, for a five-year term that started on 1 May 2019.

Mr Kieswetter will continue leading the execution of the current strategic direction of the revenue service while ensuring a smooth leadership transition.
