Capt Mokjadi Jane Satekge was born on 16 September 1961. She joined the South African Police Service on 15 January 1990 where she was employed as an administrator at SAPS Sebokeng. Following that, she was transferred to SAPS Vereeniging in 1992, to SAPS Orange Farm in 1995 and SAPS Vanderbijlpark in 2001. On 23 March 2006, Capt Satekge was transferred to Sedibeng K9 Unit, through a promotional post with the rank of captain and working as the Head of Support HRM, which post she held until her retirement at the end of September 2021.
On 16 September 2021, Sedibeng K9 Unit celebrated Capt Satekge’s 60th birthday and held a farewell function honouring her for all the years that she dedicated to the SAPS.
The programme director, Const Jabulani J Mthombeni opened with a prayer and explained the purpose of the event. Capt Deoun Moodley extended a word of welcome to the guests and wished Capt Satekge a happy birthday and a peaceful retirement.
Lt-Col Nash Singh thanked Capt Satekge for her hospitality when Rapid Response Services visited Sedibeng K9 Unit for inspection.
The Unit Commander, Lt-Col Wonderboy Tsoari said in his speech that a farewell for a colleague is nothing else but a formal handing over of the colleague to her family. SAPS K9 Sedibeng Unit thanked her daughters, Mokgadi Ramphele accompanied by her siblings Makgatla Sode and Karabo Satekge for lending their mother to the SAPS. For 31 years, Capt Satekge worked relentlessly and always kept the peace among colleagues at Sedibeng K9 Unit. All her colleagues wished her well for her retirement and it was evident that indeed Sedibeng K9 Unit has lost an asset.
Capt Satekge was caught by surprise by Sedibeng K9 Unit as she did not suspect anything about the farewell and birthday celebration. She cried tears of joy as she thanked everyone who made the farewell and birthday celebration a success.
Congratulations Captain and have a peaceful retirement.
