Retired court president, Mosojane returns to court
Retired Tatitown Customary Court President and Voice columnist, Margaret Mosojane, has returned to work on a two- year- contact.
Although her come back was partly for personal reasons Mosojane, whose traditional wisdom has reconciled many broken families said it was also her love for solving family and gender issues that drove her back to court.
Speaking from the same caravan cubicle she had occupied for over 11 years before retirement the recipient of a presidential award for her achievements at the Department of Tribal Authority, revealed that for the one year that she was gone she terribly missed putting a smile on troubled people’s faces on a daily basis.
In fact Mosojane couldn’t entirely detach herself from her job to the extent that even during her short break she reserved Tuesdays and Thursdays for free counseling at home.
“I couldn’t resist counseling people because I have become conscious of the fact that there is a social gap which I somehow by the grace of God have managed to fill. And through the years my clients developed trust in me which makes it comfortable for them to divulge their intimate problems to me.”
Asked to comment on her presidential award she said: “That was great. Truly speaking I felt very honoured to receive such recognition from an office of such a high level.”
When will she retire then, for good? Letting out a laugh she says,”The challenges I have had in life have taught me that one should live this life one day at a time. I have also learnt that it is God who determines people’s destiny, so when that time comes I would know.”
She thanked the Tati-town customary staff for the warm welcome.
