About Candith Mashego-Dlamini

Ms Candith Kwati Mashego-Dlamini is the current International Relations Deputy Minister. She previously served as Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform.

She was born 1 January 1960 on the Kerk farm in Hazyview in the former Eastern Transvaal. After completing her standard 10 (now grade 12) at Mshadza High School, she worked as a temporary teacher at Mganduzweni High School from 1980-81. Passionate about education and self advancement, she enrolled for a financial secretariat diploma with Phonefficiency in Johannesburg while residing in Tembisa on the East Rand. Ms Mashego-Dlamini changed professions when she did a Secondary Teachers’ Diploma (STD) at the Elijah Mango College of Education - a college known for its political activity. She further pursued a BA degree after which she read for a B.Ed degree in Education Management and went on to attain a Diploma in Public Management. These qualifications were attained through the University of South Africa. She holds a string of certificates, including Environmental Management, Fidelity Fund, Basic Computer, Typing and Music.

Ms Mashego-Dlamini played an instrumental role in setting up a detainee parents support committee in the 1980s to thwart the impact of the arrests of many anti-apartheid activists. She participated in many structures including the National Education Union of SA, which spearheaded the formation of the South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU). In 1994, her political immersion in bread and butter issues of the oppressed saw her elevated to becoming MEC for Health, Welfare and Gender Affairs. In 1999, she was appointed MEC for Agriculture, Conservation and Environment, a position she held until she was given the responsibility to lead the Department of Public Works from 2004 to 2007.
