Johannesburg - The telecoms regulator, the Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa), has moved swiftly to plug the hole in its leadership by agreeing to appoint an acting chairperson next week.
This followed the decision of Parliament this week to support the report of the communications portfolio committee to axe chairperson Rubben Mohlaloga, who was appointed in 2017.
He was convicted of fraud last year.
Last month, the Pretoria Commercial Crimes Court sentenced him to 20years’ imprisonment.
This relates to the Land Bank scam which involved Mohlaloga, former chief executive of the bank Phil Mohlahlane, and attorney Dinga Rammy Nkhwashu.
