Succeed In SA
Just prior to independence in South Africa, the Patricia Roberts
Harris Public Affairs Program, in cooperation with Georgetown University
and the University of the Western Cape, conducted a training Program
for a group of non-white South Africans to become diplomats in that
countrys foreign service.
Among the most successful of USAID funded tertiary education projects,
according to agency evaluations, the program trained individuals
who are now scattered around the world as accomplished diplomats.
Derick Moyo, for example, has just arrived in Sao Paolo, Brazil,
as Consul General. He served previously in Toronto, Canada, and
was most recently deputy chief of logistics at the UN World Conference
Against Racism in Durban.
The new SA Counselor in Algiers is Deon Seals. Lebogang Sefolo,
who served until recently as Second Secretary at the SA mission
in Algiers, is in line for assignment in Maputo, where he may succeed
another of the program participants, Thanukwazi Nyadose (then Felix
Makhantini) as First Secretary.
Nyadose is now Counselor of the South African Mission in Buenos
Thami Brian Mfundisi was until recently SA Trade Representative
in Brussels. He is reported to be headed for an important business
position in the private sector.
In government, but not diplomacy, Hermoine Cronje has worked in
the South African Parliament. She recently was drafted by the National
Director of Prosecutions to assist in legal work related to the
seizure of assets belonging to criminals.
