The public protector has subpoenaed Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan and former South African Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Oupa Magashula to answer questions related to a complaint over the establishment of the alleged “rogue unit” at the tax agency.

Gordhan was Sars commissioner between November 1999 and May 2009 and Magashula from 2009 to 2013. The Mail & Guardian understands that advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane has given Gordhan and Magashula seven days to reply to her questions to be submitted to her office by April 23.

It is understood the questions resemble the 27 questions sent to Gordhan in 2016 by the Hawks on the eve of the then finance minister’s budget speech.
