ICASA’s Rubben Mohlaloga sentenced to 20 years in prison

BusinessDay reports that ICASA chair Rubben Mohlaloga has been sentenced to 20 years in jail for fraud and money-laundering, after a R6-million transaction involving Land Bank was found to be illegal.

The state alleged that he worked with then Land Bank CEO and ANC MP Philemon Mohlahlane and attorney Dinga Rammy Nkhwashu to transfer R6 million to Nkhwashu’s law firm in 2008.

R6 million gets you 20 years - so a large part of govt will be getting around 250 years behind bars ?

I don't understand how fraud and money laundering can get you a harsher sentence than murder and rape.

It's Africa, Wakanda rules..

Can someone please work out how long Zuma's going to sit once the law finally catches up to him?
