Cape Town - Independent Communications Authority of South Africa chairperson Rubben Mohlaloga refused to comment on Tuesday after Parliament demanded his immediate removal from the telecoms regulator.
This was after the portfolio committee on communications took a decision that Mohlaloga must not stay on as chairperson of Icasa following a court judgment that found him guilty of fraud.
Mohlaloga was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment.
The case relates to the defrauding of the Land Bank a few years ago when one of his co-accused was former Land Bank chief executive Phil Mohlahlane, who received a lesser sentence.
Mohlaloga said on Tuesday “the matter was handled by my lawyers.” He did not elaborate.
