Gordhan Threatens to Resign Over Tax Boss, Business Day Reports

Updated on

South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan threatened to resign if President Jacob Zuma doesn’t fire the head of the country’s tax authority, Business Day reported, citing unidentified people.

Gordhan issued the ultimatum to Zuma last weekend before his budget speech to parliament on Wednesday, because of a serious deterioration in his relationship with Tom Moyane, commissioner of the South African revenue service, the Johannesburg-based newspaper said.
