Tributes are pouring in for the late Karabo Mabel Moseneke, mother of retired Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke. She died at her home in Block D in Mabopane at the weekend after suffering a mild stroke.

Justice Moseneke says the family is proud to have been blessed with such a strong and courageous mother who after the passing of their father 20 years ago continued to build and unite the family.

“Mme Karabo Moseneke was born on the 22nd August 1925 and she was therefore, 93 years … just about to turn 94 in August of this year. But painfully, she passed away peacefully in our midst, her children, at home on Sunday … the past Sunday. And this is after a short illness. She was remarkably a healthy person. That was the first time that Mme went to hospital ever. She had a slight stroke, which was resolved very quick and it is almost like she decided it was time she wanted to rest.”
