This isn’t the first time Mohlala-Mulaudzi has relapsed with a minister she works for, or employees and colleagues.

Icasa

While serving as an advisor to the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) from 2002 to 2007, the Mail & Guardian reported that 11 senior officials resigned and identified Mohlala-Mulaudzi, saying they were fed up with the council. interfering in operations and regularly violating Icasa’s policies and procedures.

Communications Department

He then left to become a pension fund judge before becoming chief executive of the communications department, where, according to the Mail & Guardian, five senior executives resigned after his appointment, citing his autocratic leadership in their exit talks.

Mohlala-Mulaudzi also suspended six others for alleged misconduct and corruption. One of them, Chief Human Resources Director Basani Baloyi, was reinstated by the Public Service Bargaining Council, but by the time she returned to work, her post had already been filled by a young official who was a leading hearing witnesses of his disciplinary discipline.

At the time, Mohlala-Mulaudzi said the suspensions were based on the outcome of a forensic audit that involved some executives in financial and other irregularities and that suspended others following complaints of operational inability and insubordination.

Baloyi later told the labor court that she was suspended for refusing to approve Mohlala’s salary claims and forced her to take a psychometric test.

Mail & Guardian also reported that various positions had been filled by the staff of the pension fund judge, but Mohlala-Mulaudzi later replied that they had been interviewed and recommended by an independent committee of which he was not a member.

In July 2010 Mohlala-Mulaudzi was dissolved from her contract with immediate effect according to a statement from the department which stated that the trust between the minister (Siphiwe Nyanda) and the general manager was irremediably broken.

It Web reported that Mohlala-Mulaudzi then submitted an urgent request to the labor court to revoke her dismissal as illegal and unfair and that the minister did not have the authority to fire her.

Eventually former President Jacob Zuma stepped in and it was decided that Mohlala-Mulaudzi would be reassigned to become the National Consumer Commissioner.

National Consumer Commission

Problems followed her there too and the Nehawu union complained in 2011 that staff were not satisfied with their working conditions, such as being forced to work long hours and Saturdays, insufficient workstations, no contracts performance, leave denied and bullied and threatened by here.

However, Mohlala later told Timeslive that an independent staff survey showed they were happy at work.

When he quarreled with his supervisors at the Department of Commerce and Industry, the minister, Dr. Rob Davies said when she announced that her contract will not be reviewed, that he didn’t know her from a bar of soap and that there was no formal interview when she was appointed, according to Finweek.

He took the department to the labor court a number of times to get his job back, but eventually gave up.

After he left the commission, all compliance notices he issued against businesses were either shelved by the National Consumer Court or withdrawn by his successor, Ebrahim Mohamed.

He told the portfolio committee in parliament that instead of acting as a national consumer protection body, Mohlala-Mulaudzi emphasized the resolution of complaints “while lacking corporate governance and the necessary procedures necessary for the functioning of an efficient public body. “.

She signed the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) enforcement guidelines herself, although it is part of the regulations and should only be signed by the minister.

In a case before the National Consumer Tribunal (NCT), the panel described the Commission’s efforts to defend compliance as a “circus”, noting that the Commission does not follow the correct procedures for issuing a compliance notice, it has issued defective compliance notices and issued not CPA sanctioned notices.

Mohlala-Mulaudzi then replied saying he did not understand ‘on what basis [are] they (the court) come up with these kinds of insinuations. ‘

SABC and EEAB

While practicing as a lawyer, Mohlala-Mulaudzi was appointed vice chairman of the board of the SABC and later chief executive of the Summer Agents Affairs Board (EAAB). It wasn’t easy at the SABC either, as Mohlala-Mulaudzi was paid to attend council meetings, although government policy dictates that civil servants are not allowed to receive payments for sitting on state councils.

At the EAAB she also clashed with staff and Nehawu and a report by an anonymous informant who was sent to the Minister of Human Settlements, Lindiwe Sisulu and the council accused her of allegedly appointing staff without following the proper recruitment process. and not telling the truth about the tablets sponsoring Vodacom for the EAAB youth program, according to Rapport.

In March last year, the High Court ordered the property supervisory authority to issue 2021 loyalty fund certificates to a group of 833 real estate agents who couldn’t work or get paid because they weren’t certified after the EAAB said in the January edition of a real estate magazine that had issued compliant FFCs for 2021 on time by December 31, 2020 and which all industry bodies had confirmed.
