Communications Minister in stand-off with Parliament over ICASA appointments

Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams is facing an unprecedented stand-off with Parliament over the appointment of new Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) councillors.

According to a report by City Press, Parliament's portfolio committee on communications had provided a ranked list of candidates for the positions, and the National Assembly approved 10 names from this list on the day Ndabeni-Abrahams returned to work.

Read the article several times to see what the stand-off's about, but couldn't find any real info. The committee on communications has prepared a list of 10 names and she has to choose six from this 10 - what's the big deal? :unsure:

I agree

The headline implies she has appointed different people from those suggest, but the article indicates she hasn't chosen yet.

clickbait headline :mad::mad:
