"The judgment as it right now stands, whenever left unchallenged, would sabotage the sacred rule of the classification of citizen data, which is the bedrock whereupon crafted by Sars and other worldwide income specialists is based.

"However, they don't actually give out a great deal of depiction. So one of the worries is how far does this go? The court ought to have been extremely certain that the motivation behind why there is a public premium [element] is [because] we are discussing public cash, however they didn't do that.

"Presently lamentably, Sars is in a position where they need to depend on the NPA to get this [matter] arraigned, yet they don't want to [sic] be uncovering citizens' profits to people in general so it seems as though they are safeguarding Zuma, yet they [are] sincerely attempting to shield the public by and large."

The book likewise uncovered that the moves up to Zuma's Nkandla property in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) comprised an incidental advantage, just as that the previous president got gifts from unlawful sources and a compensation from a security organization.
It further expresses that Zuma delegated Tom Moyane as the official of Sars to subvert the authorization ability of the income administration and to prevent it from arraigning him for the non-installment of charges.
