Moyane was obligated to report the irregular deposits into Makwakwa’s account.

He is also facing internal disciplinary charges relating to the gross mishandling of the 2016 financial intelligence report, which flagged Makwakwa's dishonesty.

Moyane is the first head of SARS since 1994 to face disciplinary charges.
