Icasa's Rubben Mohlaloga to appeal 20 year sentence for fraud, money-laundering

Independent Communications Authority of SA chairperson Rubben Mohlaloga is expected to appeal a 20-year sentence for fraud, money-laundering.

Mohlaloga, who was appointed as chairperson of Icasa in December 2017, was found guilty of defrauding the Land Bank of about R6m when he was the chairperson of Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Agriculture.

He was sentenced alongside former acting head of the Land Bank Philemon Mohlahlane and attorney Dinga Rammy Nkwashu.

Chairperson of the communications portfolio committee Prof. Hlengiwe Mkhize says this has cleared the way for Icasa to restore the integrity of the organisation.

There were diverse views. Some members of the committee felt action should be taken irrespective of the appeal but there were those saying lets allow the rule of law to take it's course. We really hope in the interim, Icasa will formerly inform us of what has happened and their decision.

Prof. Hlengiwe Mkhize, Chairperson - Communications portfolio committee

Basically management will have to write to us and say Councillors receive this, this is our position. It will be the CEO who will have to write.
