Johannesburg - Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies has appointed a new acting national consumer commissioner, the department said on Thursday.

Davies appointed Ebrahim Mohammed, the deputy national consumer commissioner, into the new role, according to a statement issued by the department.

The appointment will bypass outgoing commissioner Mamodupi Mohlala-Mulaudzi, who has battled to keep her position.

Davies had said previously that Mohlala-Mulaudzi's contract would not be renewed.

In the statement, Davies thanked Mohlala-Mulaudzi "for her contribution to the commission and wished her all the best in her future endeavours".

Mohlala-Mulaudzi joined the department's consumer commission in 2010 as part of a settlement brokered by the department of public service and administration.

The deal followed a breakdown in the relationship between Mohlala-Mulaudzi and former communications minister Siphiwe Nyanda.

Mohlala-Mulaudzi was fired from her position as director general in Nyanda's department.

She unsuccessfully approached the Johannesburg Labour Court earlier this month to win a renewal of her contract.
