    Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams has removed Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) Chairperson and Councillor Rubben Mohlaloga from office.

    Mohlaloga was convicted of fraud and money laundering on 15 January 2018. He was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on 14 February 2019.

    The Minister’s decision follows a resolution by the National Assembly resolution and it’s in accordance with section 8(3)(b) of the ICASA Act, No. 13 of 2002 (ICASA Act).

    On Wednesday, the National Assembly (NA) resolved, in terms of section 8(2)(a) of the ICASA Act to remove Mohlaloga from office with immediate effect.

    Last Friday, the Minister suspended Mohlaloga pending the conclusion of the National Assembly process to remove him from office following a resolution of the Portfolio Committee on Communications on the matter.

    In terms of section 6(1)(j) of the ICASA Act, a Councillor who is convicted of, amongst others, fraud; is disqualified from holding office.

    The ICASA Council will, as empowered by section 5 (2)(b) of the Act, elect an Acting Chairperson. Further, the process to appoint a new Chairperson will soon commence.

    2. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
      PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
      But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous
      websites for about a year and am worried about switching to
      another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
      Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
