Sub-lieutenant Masego Mosupye, a UCT chemical engineering alumnus and past subwarden of the Woolsack residence, was the South African Navy Guard Platoon Commander at the opening of parliament on Thursday, 9 February 2017, ahead of the State of the Nation address.

Mosupye is currently employed by the South African Navy as an engineering officer, dealing with corrosion on naval vessels. She is based at the Simon’s Town dockyard and teaches an engineering class with the Sea Cadets at Training Ship Woltemade on weekends.

Mosupye joined the Sea Cadets as an instructor early in 2012 while waiting to be considered for the University Reserve Training Project.

After completing her Military Training for Officers Part 1 (MTO1) at the South African Naval College in Gordon’s Bay, she was awarded the management trophy for her achievements on the course.
