Proud Recipients at Cape Winelands Long Service Awards
The Department of Transport and Public Works recognised dedicated staff members at the Cape Winelands regional Long Service Awards in Paarl on 24 February 2015.
Donald Grant, Minister of Transport and Public Works gave them certificates in recognition of completing 10, 30 and 40 years’ service with the department. Recipients largely work in the road maintenance, public works and traffic law enforcement fields.
Minister Grant said the Department is proud of recipients.
“They have served the Department with pride and dignity over the years. Many of them have contributed to road infrastructure and traffic law enforcement. This has made it safe for citizens they serve in the Western Cape. May they keep up the good work and continue to support each other in realising our desired goals,” said Minister Grant.
Recipients were proud of their achievements in the public service. Provincial Traffic Inspector Mbulelo Dyani at Swellendam Traffic Centre says celebrating 10 years in the service is an exhilarating feeling.
“The Department has given me many opportunities over the years for which I am greatly honoured. I look forward to many more years in traffic law enforcement and doing my bit,” he said. Dyani added that the training he received at Gene Louw Traffic College in Brackenfell was valuable towards his career.
Thirty (30) years of employment service is an extraordinary feat for a person in any industry. This achievement has overwhelmed Samuel Boonzaaier, who works in the Supply Chain Management component at the Paarl regional District Roads Engineer (DRE) office in Paarl.
“I’m pleased with my contribution to the Department over the years. These were filled with many joyful moments that I will always treasure,” he said.
Boonzaaier will be retiring in July this year and the regional office is indebted for his commitment and dedication.
The Cape Metropole regional Long Service Awards will take place in the conference facility at 4 Dorp Street in Cape Town on 10 March 2015.
