about the Mayor.
With a revered journey as a scholar, student, employee and a political figure, she marks a significant milestone and a victory for women as a leader. She is among the first of the few women in the province to ascend the positions of whip, Speaker and Executive Mayor in different Municipalities, Local and District level.
A proud Motswana, she was born in Ikageng Township, Tlokwe, North West (Formerly Western Transvaal) on 08 March 1956. She completed high school education in 1978 at Baitshoki High School, Itsoseng Township in the now defunct Bophuthatswana Bantustan regime. An avid devotee of education, she joined the workforce a year later to serve the community of Oudedorp at a local farm school in the Potchefstroom District as a private teacher until 1989.
Her thirst for knowledge ultimately lured her to study further with among qualifications in her possession including Municipal Management, Environmental Management, Division for Education Traffic Safety (NWU Potchefstroom Campus 1997).
Her political career took off in the late 1970’s as a member of Deputy Secretary of the African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL). She was also an active member of the federation of South African Women (FEDSAW) through organizing woman structures for myriad sectors against the apartheid administration in 1984.
Among roles she played in the tumultuous political era in the Western Transvaal until the present moment as Executive Mayor of the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality (Dr KKDM), she served as South African Communist Party (SACP) Tlokwe Ward 14 Branch Chairperson for 19 years (1988 – 2007); ANC Tlokwe Ward 14 Deputy Secretary (1992 - 1994); Board Member Malibongwe National (1996 – 1998) and ANC Provincial Executive Committee Member (2011 – 2014).
Alderman Mosiane – Segotso has served as council at Tlokwe City Council (Now NW 405) representing the ANC from 5 December 2000. Her positions take account of representative at Southern District Municipality (now Dr KKDM in 2000 – 2004), fulltime whip of Council (Tlokwe City Council 2004 – 2006 and 2006 – 2011), Speaker of Council (Tlokwe City Council 2011 - 2016). As an honour to serve as loyal member in local Government Council for more than 20years, she was conferred to Aldermanship Status, which made her a Member of Borough Council (Next in status to the Mayor).
Her participation in community empowerment, such as being a Board Member of the Potchefstroom Hospital, coupled with other committee deployments by the ANC to advance community involvement in public institution governance. All these credentials have earned her the capability to serve in local government with integrity and solid accountability to the entire district community.
