SARS CUSTOMS Complaints - GOODS DELAYED FOR RELEASE FOR ALMOST 2 MONTHS

I IMPORTED GARAGE DOOR MOTROS AND HARDWARES LAST YEAR NOVEMBER 2017 AND AUGUST 2018, SAME ITEMS, THE FIRST SHIPMENT WAS FREED WITHOUT DUTIES AND THE CURRENT ONE WAS CHARGED, I TOLD CUSTOMS OFFICIALS THAT MY FIRST SHIPMENT WAS FREE WHY CHARGE THE CURRENT ONE? I WAS TOLD TO PROVE MY CLAIM, WHICH I DID, I WAS THEN ASKED TO PROVIDE A LETTER FROM THE SUPPLIER INDICATION THE TERRIF CODE FOR THE GOODS AND I DID SO AGAIN, A SPECIFICATION OF THE GOODS WAS ALSO SUBMITTED, BUT ALL OF THESE WERE NOT ACCEPTED AND IT TOOK A MONTH TO RESOLVE THE TERRIF CODE MATTER WHILE THE STORAGE CHARGES WERE PILING UP AT JUST OVER R900-00 PER DAY, I WAS MADE TO PAY ABOUT R16K ULTIMATELY, WHEN THE CONTAINER WAS RELEASED, IT WAS ALREADY AT THE STATE WAREHOUSE, I WAS THEN TOLD TO SUBMIT A DA68, WHILE BUSY WITH THAT, A DA 70 APPLICATION WAS REQUIRED FROM ME IN ORDER TO PAY FOR THE PENALTY DUE TO LATE CLEARANCE, TODAY THE 20-09-2018, I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY SHIPMENT AND THE STORAGE IS RUNNING AT ABOUT R50K, THE GOODS THAT SUPPOSED TO EARN ME AN INCOME ARE LAYING AT CUSTOMS WAREHOUSE AND YET I AM EXPECTED TO PAY MASSIVE AMOUNT, THIS WHOLE THING WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD TO THE STATE CONFISCATING MY GOODS, ALL THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE CUSTOMS HAS NO SENSE OF URGENCY, I AM IN A DELIMMA AS HOW AM I GOING TO PAY FOR THE STORAGE, WHATEVER I HAVE PAYED TOWARDS STORAGE FEES, HAS BEEN BORROWED, I FEEL HELPLESS AND ROBBED BY THE STATE/CUSTOMS.
