LOTTERIES SOUTH AFRICA South Africans urged to have their say on who should be Lottery chair 2 months ago Samuel Post Views: 218 Parliament’s Trade and Industry Committee is calling for public comment on the eight shortlisted candidates for the position of National Lotteries Commission (NLC) board chairperson. The Committee says the list of nominees was referred to it by the National Assembly Speaker, Thandi Modise, after the Trade and Industry Minister Ebrahim Patel requested the committee to make a recommendation. The candidates are the Reverend Frank Chikane, Ashwin Trikamjee, Dr. Barney Pityana, Terry Tselane, Themba Dlamini, Gugulethu Xaba, Beryl Ferguson, and Muthuhadini Madzivhandila. Committee Chairperson, Duma Nkosi, says they will ensure an open and transparent process. He says the recommendation is expected to be finalised by next month. The term of the former National Lotteries chairperson ended in November. During Professor Alfred Nevhutanda’s tenure, the NLC was faced with allegations of corruption and maladministration. Top executives were accused of giving grants to close associates and friends. Last year in December, the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) raided the NLC offices in Pretoria.
