ICASA has appointed Paris Mashile as acting chairperson. This follows the departure of Rubben Mohlaloga.
Mohlaloga joined the ICASA Council in July 2013 and became acting chairperson in June 2016 – a role he performed until the end of his term.
ICASA said Mohlaloga led a number of strategic regulatory projects, including the process for licensing of IMT spectrum, the licensing of free-to-air television broadcasting services, and the review and updating of the National Radio Frequency Plan.
“We are particularly grateful that he leaves behind an organisation that has turned the corner in respect of its corporate performance, having stabilised the organisational performance level above 70% over the past two years. We are indeed indebted to his leadership and wisdom,” said Mashile.
