JOHANNESBURG - The Constitutional Court will hear oral submissions from Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane and the South African Revenue Service.

Mkhwebane wants Sars to grant her access to confidential taxpayer information.

In March, the North Gauteng High court ruled against her, declaring that taxpayer information was confidential.

Mkhwebane wants access to former president Jacob Zuma’s tax records.

This as part of her investigations into claims that Zuma received payments from a politically connected businessman.

The former president wrote on his official twitter account saying he had nothing to hide and if the public protector wanted his Sars records, she should get it.
