Comrade Thabo Hendrik Eric "Macomrade" Peterson

Posted by mollys at 13:54 am, July 29th 2011.

Thabo Hendrik Eric Peterson was born on the 5th March 1964 in Rouxville. He was the only child and only son of the only two children parented by both Mr Stoffel and Mrs Mathabo Peterson, after primary school he went to Welkom where he completed his Senior Certificate at the Bronville Senior Secondary in the year 1988.

Between the years 1997 and 1999 Cde Peterson was the (Town Clerk) CEO of the Jaggersfontein Transitional Council (JTLC). Just after joining the Jaggersfontein traditional local council, he visited and undertook International Study Tours in a number of countries to gain International Experience in the field of Local government. This exposed him to a totally different system and environment than in South Africa. Subsequent to Jaggersfontein TLC, he joined the Free State Local Government Association (FRELOGA) as its CEO. After the process of amalgamation FRELOGA became SALGA FS and he occupied the position of Deputy CEO and Later Provincial Executive Officer (PEO) until he left SALGA in the year 2008.

He later joined Matjhabeng Local Municipality in the year 2008 as its municipal Manager a position he occupied until his last minute on this earth.

Not only was Comrade Peterson a visionary administrator, he was also an activist of note, having occupied position in various organisations and sectors in his lifetime. Among the organisations he joined and served in different capacities and levels were SANCO, SANGOCO, MEWUSA, NAFU and the ANC. Because of his acumen, he also served in different boards and communities, including PACOFS, Township Board, Phakisa and Free State regional Mining Development and Environmental Committees, including. He continued to serve in different sub-committees of the ANC in the Province until his last minutes.

Comrade Peterson will surely be missed as a humble cadre who always respected the organisation he committed his whole life to the ANC and his leadership; a fierce Fighter for principal and all round leader who led from the front. We are therefore justified in pronouncing him:

A cadre who valued organisational discipline and dedicated all his life to the achievement of our freedom, one who lived a complete life, which will inspire future generations.

Rest in peace comrade and pillar of strength
