Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams has finally subjected herself to Parliament's authority in the appointment of the six councillors for the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) council.

This after she was hauled by ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule to a meeting of the ANC's subcommittee on communications on Saturday, where she was instructed to obey Parliament. 

On Friday, she gazetted five names to fill the six vacancies for the council. This after the National Assembly adopted the portfolio committee's report rejecting the candidate she wanted to appoint who was not in the committee's top six.
