SARS IT boss Mmamathe Makhekhe-Mokhuane has shot to fame in the last 24 hours because she made two very public blunders. Makhekhe-Mokhuane botched an early morning interview to become the latest viral sensation in the country.
But not everyone is impressed by or even amused by Makhekhe-Mokhuane’s blunders considering she is meant to be an IT expert who allegedly earns R3.06 million per year (more or less the same as the current presidential salary).
If this figure is to be believed it means Makhekhe-Mokhuane earns R278 000 per month or to make it plainly shocking R1738 per hour. This means she earns the minimum wage in just two hours!
Briefly.co.za gathered that the claim was made by Sindile Vabaza who conducted the early morning TV interview with Makhekhe-Mokhuane.
Citizen.co.za reported that Makhekhe-Mokhuane made her second blunder of the day when she testified before the Nugent Inquiry. Makhekhe-Mokhuane’s testimony was rambling incoherent and basically made no sense.
Judge Nugent who came out of retirement to establish what had gone wrong at SARS in recent years grew understandably irked with Makhekhe-Mokhuane’s testimony.
Shockingly Makhekhe-Mokhuane even gave the judge advice on how to run his inquiry.
“I’m not going to sit here and discuss whether or not I attended meetings. As and when I get assignments, I get them through the commissioner. This is beyond a waste of your time. You need to look at governance, rather than when I’m going to the bathroom. Please protect me,” she said.
Her antics have made her an internet sensation, but has raised questions about her suitability to hold the critical job which she does.
