JOHANNESBURG - Parliament's communications committee on Friday said it noted the sentencing of Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) board chairman Rubben Mohlaloga to 20 years in prison for defrauding the Land Bank back in 2012.
Committee chairwoman Hlengiwe Mkhize said a meeting with Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams is scheduled to take place in the next two weeks.
“The Icasa Act of 2014 is clear on what constitute disqualification to persons serving on the Icasa Council. Accordingly, the committee will play its oversight role on Icasa in line with the legislation in order to restore stability and ethical leadership at the entity. The committee will in the next two weeks meet with the Minister of Communications,Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, to be updated on the state of the department and its entities, including Icasa," Mkhize said in a statement.
