JOHANNESBURG – Former Bain partner, Atholl Williams, has presented statements from various employees who said that they were uncomfortable with the work they were doing at the South African Revenue Services ( Sars).
But current commissioner, Edward Kieswetter, said that the model was flawed and it destroyed Sars capacity, sidelined key senior executives and resulted in an R100 billion decline in tax revenues.
Williams read from one of the employee statements that said their concerns were dismissed.
“Our work there was effectively a sham. Something was simply not quite right. I tried to communicate this to management, the work that we were doing was unethical.”
