Kaizer Chiefs football manager and businessman Bobby Motaung has been slapped with a lawsuit by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) for a staggering R51m tax bill .
This comes after the businessman, son of Chiefs owner Kaizer Motaung, allegedly failed to pay his income tax for a number of years.
Motaung, however, told Sunday World that he had not received notice of Sars's court proceedings.
"If I owe Sars R51m, as you say, why am I being called by Sunday World and not Sars about this matter? I have not received the summons and therefore I have no comment," he said.
Sars spokesperson Sandile Memela said: "As you may be aware, Sars is not in a position to divulge specific information and details on the affairs of taxpayers.
"Sars is bound by chapter six of the Tax Administration Act, 2011, dealing with confidentiality of information, and more specifically, section 69 of the act, which provides for the secrecy of taxpayer information. This includes investigations into taxpayers or traders."
