Commissioner Mohlala-Mulaudzi's never ending employment saga

Here is the latest on Commissioner Mohlala-Mulaudzi's never ending employment saga. Her contract with the Department of Trade and Industry runs out on 25 August 2012 (or 3 September 2012, both these dates have been reported). She is asking that the renewal of her contract must be considered by someone else, not the DTI. The matter was postponed because neither Mohlala-Mulaudzi nor her advocate appeared in court.

NCC 0, Suppliers 3: Yet another compliance notice set aside by the NCT

Disturbing claims made by NCC Chief Commissioner against DTI

NCC Chief Commissioner Mamodupi Mohlala-Mulaudzi has made disturbing allegations of 'sabotage' against the Department of Trade and Industry. She claims that the NCC has been hamstrung by a series of investigations, financial controls and under-funding. The motivation for this 'sabotage' is a conflict of interest between the 'mandate' of the NCC and the DTI.
