Deputy President David Mabuza has refused to be drawn into the spat between public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan and under fire public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane on Thursday, over the so-called SA Revenue Service (Sars) “rogue unit”.

The EFF has been calling for Gordhan to be removed from his position following a controversial report by Mkhwebane, which found that the minister had violated the constitution by establishing the Sars “rogue unit”.

Gordhan has approached the courts to challenge the report, and another earlier one on his approval of former Sars commissioner Ivan Pillay’s early retirement package.
