It has recently been reported that Ms Trudi Makhaya, the Deputy Competition Commissioner, has resigned. There has been no indication yet on a replacement but it signals a continuation of the worrying trend of senior experienced Commission staff departing the authority.
For further information see the attached link. Her twitter and LinkedIn accounts remain unaffected by her resignation as of Feb. 11, as both still show her job title as Competition Commission executive. She is likewise still listed on the Commission’s web site as active. We previously reported on one of her opinion pieces here. She also recently published this piece in the Daily Maverick, entitled “The temptations of neo-volkskapitalisme“.
