The people who hold the power: Monametsi Moeti

2012-11-10 11:31

Moeti (43) will represent seven villages at the ANC’s Mangaung conference next month.

She’s the ward 27 councillor in the Mafikeng Local Municipality.

Moeti joined the ANC in 1993.

This mother of three believes it was the influence of President Jacob Zuma’s leadership and recognition of the rights of the rural poor that saved her community from provincial government-planned relocation.

“These days when we write to ANC structures they do acknowledge our letters and make efforts to assist,” she says. She still doesn’t know where she’s going to stay during the conference, but that doesn’t dampen her spirits.

“When you agree to be a delegate, you take that with all its beauties and challenges,” she says.
