In a unanimous decision, the National Assembly has approved the report to remove Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) chairperson Rubben Mohlaloga from his position… Mohlaloga was sentenced to 20 years in prison on February 14 for fraud and money laundering in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crime Court.

Mohlaloga, who was appointed chairperson of Icasa in December 2017, was found guilty of the two charges in January 2018. After Portfolio Committee on Communications chair Hlengiwe Mkhize read out the report to members of Parliament, DA MP Marian Shinn took to the podium.

Shinn stated that since Mohlaloga had been “convicted of fraud and money laundering and in terms of the ICASA Act, he no longer qualifies to serve on the ICASA council”.
