Rajbansi believes the legislation, under which existing operators will be forced to close in the next three months, will benefit large consortiums ---including one in which Mhlungu has an interest ---bidding for the province’s five casino licences.

“The draconian measures tabled by Mhlungu’s department lay the rules in favour of the big boys,” said Rajbansi, who said he intends intoducing legislation which would prevent any minister involved in drafting gaming legislation from applying for a casino licence for three years after they resign.

Although Mhlungu resigned as director of Khulani Holdings--- which he started in 1978--- when he took office in April 1994, he still owns 1 190 310 shares, at an estimated value of over R100 000.
