EC women gets Eastern Cape driving

10 Apr,2015WoF Women

Late last year the Eastern Cape appointed their second female driver in the province as part of the Working on Fire’s commitment to empower women in the programme.

Ntombentle Nqunda, 26, from the Ugie base joined Working on Fire as a fire fighter in February 2010. She completed her matric in 2009 and she realised that she needed to get a job to assist her family, she told WoFire News. Nqunda said that by the time she was recruited it was not easy but she tried her best to pass the fitness because she wanted a job. “Being a fire fighter was never easy, but I always motivated myself and I was excited when

I was eventually recruited. In 2014 November I was given an opportunity to be one of the drivers in the province and I was taken on a driving course which I passed very well”, Ntombentle said. She further added, “I am thankful to WoF for developing my skills and for having given me this opportunity as a woman to become a driver”.
