Early Life

In December 1947, Dikgang Moseneke was born in South Africa. He attended school in Pretoria and showed early activism by joining the Pan-Africanist Congress (PAC) at the young age of 14, which was an anti-apartheid organization.

Unfortunately, his activism led to his arrest and imprisonment at the age of 15 for anti-apartheid activities.

Remarkably, during his 10-year sentence on Robben Island alongside Nelson Mandela, Moseneke achieved academic success by earning a Bachelor of Arts in English and Political Science, a Bachelor of Iuris, and later a Bachelor of Laws all through the University of South Africa. 


Dikgang Moseneke’s educational accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary, particularly given the challenges he faced.

Despite being imprisoned on Robben Island for his anti-apartheid activism, Moseneke obtained two degrees from UNISA – a Bachelor of Arts in English and Political Science and a Bachelor of Juris in Political Science.

He later completed a Bachelor of Laws degree from the same university. This feat is even more impressive because UNISA is a distance learning institution, allowing Moseneke to continue his studies while incarcerated.


Moseneke is widely recognized for his extensive company law, bankruptcy, and indirect tax knowledge. In addition to his legal expertise, he was a key figure in the Black Lawyers’ Association and actively participated in the anti-apartheid movement.

Taking a hiatus from his legal career, Moseneke held top positions in several corporations, including serving as the chair of Telkom.

His significant contributions extended beyond the corporate world. He played a pivotal role in South Africa’s transition to democracy.

Notably, he drafted the interim constitution and served as the Deputy Chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission during the country’s first democratic elections.

Moseneke’s career in the legal field began in the 1970s as an attorney’s clerk and later as an attorney and partner at Maluleke, Seriti, and Moseneke.

He transitioned to becoming an advocate in the 1980s and continued his successful legal practice into the 1990s.

In addition to his legal work, Moseneke ventured into business and politics, serving as the Chairperson of Telkom and other corporations in the 1990s and Deputy Chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission in 1994.

His judicial career began in 2001 when he was appointed as a judge of the High Court, followed by his appointment to the Constitutional Court in 2002.

Moseneke became the Deputy Chief Justice of South Africa in 2005 and later served as Acting Chief Justice in 2013.

His impressive career milestones highlight his dedication to justice and leadership within South Africa’s legal system.
