The commission, which investigates, controls and evaluates restrictive business practices and the abuse of dominant positions and mergers, has appointed Thomas Kgokolo as chief financial officer.
Liberty Mncube, who was a principal investigator in the Enforcement and Exemptions division of the commission, as chief economist and manager of the Policy and Research division.
Junior Khumalo takes over from Clint Oellermann as divisional manager of Enforcement and Exemptions. Oellermann moves to the commissioner’s office as manager for Strategy, Monitoring and Evaluations and Strategic Relations.
“The new appointees will provide the necessary leadership to their very important divisions. It is important that we have a very strong and stable senior management team and I have full confidence that this team will take the commission to higher levels,” said acting commissioner, Tembinkosi Bonakele.
“We are privileged as an institution that we are able to find most candidates internally and thereby ensure continuity. I am looking forward to working with the new members of our EXCO and wish them well in their new positions.”
Following investigations of collusion in the construction industry, the minister of Economic Development, Ebrahim Patel, announced last year that the commission would also be conducting an inquiry into the private healthcare sector.
