Dr. Agnes Mawela was born at Alexandra Township in Johannesburg. The family moved to Diefkloof in Soweto when she was 6 years old.

In the meantime she improved her studies where she obtained an Honors Degree from the University of South Africa (UNISA) in 1986, then in 1993 she obtained a Masters Degree at the same university.

With the dawn of democracy in South Africa Dr. Mawela moved to Polokwane, at the Capital City of Limpopo Province of where she headed the language services consisting of six official languages of the Province. She developed interest in Literature and started a vibrant program of promoting literature across all the five districts of Limpopo.
