Kalidass said, in a resignation letter addressed to President Jacob Zuma that she has decided to resign because of a clash with fellow board members over the possible appointment of former Land Bank CEO Alan Mukoki.
She said her fellow board members are hell-bent on pushing through the appointment of Mukoki even though he had a questionable past.
Mukoki has faced an investigation for fraud and corruption for alleged mismanagement of the Land Bank's finances. He currently works for the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci).
Kalidass said it was these allegations and the possible of conflict of interest that Mukoki's appointment may be create, that led her to resign.
