I submitted my tax return for 2014/2015 tax years and they said I have to be audited until I bring an affidavit proving that I only worked for short periods during those tax years. I was unemployed so did 2 jobs of 4 months each. I went back the next day and submitted my affidavit. I got at sms saying I will only be refunded 31/01/2016 and the amount could change. Why would they audit me they can see I did not have any other work?

Unfortunately, SARS does tend to audit those who are due a refund. It sounds like you are due a refund because you worked for part of the year and paid tax based on the full year; you therefore overpaid tax. This is why they are asking you to verify that you only worked for part of the year.
