IRSA Chairperson Pansy Tlakula reappointed to position
The Chairperson of the Information Regulator of South Africa (IRSA), Pansy Tlakula, has been reappointed to the position.
Tlakula and two other full-time regulators and a new part-time member have been appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa effectively from December 1.
Their appointment follows a successful parliamentary process after the term of some of the members came to an end.
Advocate Tlakula will serve as Chairperson of the Information Regulator of South Africa for a second term on a full-time basis. Advocates Lebogang Stroom-Nzama and Collins Weapond have also been re-appointed to serve as full-time members.
In a statement, the regulator says the three will be joined by former Executive Member of the Law Society Mfana Gwala who is a new appointee and part-time member.
It says Alison Tilley, who was appointed in December last year will also continue to serve as a part-time member.
The role of the Information Regulator of South Africa is to protect the personal information of citizens in terms of the Protection of Personal Information Act which came into effect in July this year.
