Briefly.co.za noticed that many people expressed their support for Mkhwebane on Twitter.
"It is crystal clear that @sarstax is being abused by these thugs to advance their own agenda. The EFF laid a criminal case against Pravin Gordhan including the fact that he has a bank account in Canada. Not even one move was made by SARS to request his revenue income stream."
"Very soon EFF is going to govern South Africa. I don't think South Africans will allow this nonsense to continue and they know very well it is only @EFFSouthAfrica that will take them out of this nonsense."
"SARS wants to unsettle and shaken her but it gonna work the opposite way, you don't do that to a person who has only shown signs of being solid, the PP has no fear and nothing to lose. She should leak more info about cr17 leaks more and more to expose them..."
"This is why EFF was so upset with PG he has his faults yebo but he is a product of the ANC so what do you expect. But if you want to catch somebody, go through their taxes."
"As expected but don't worry My sister @AdvBMkhwebane this too shall pass."
"Fight back from Thuma mina cabal. They did the same with CIC they will be embarrassed in court."
