Tsitsikamma reserve changes the lives of seven firefighters for the better

8 Jan,2016Working on Fire

Seven Tsitsikamma crew members in the Eastern Cape got appointed by SAN Parks Tsitsikama in December 2015.

These fire fighters are namely Bongani Futa, Nyama Mjongeni, Anele Ketelo, Thembakazi Mahlaba, Thombuxolo Liwani, Lukholo Zibaya and Mfezeko Dazana.

One of them, Bongani Futa, said he joined WoF in 2014 after staying at home for quite some time without a job after he left school in 2009. Futa said that seven of them passed the fitness test as well as the interviews at SAN Parks Tsitsikama.

“The experience I got at WoF as well as the fitness I got assisted me to get my new job,” said Futa with a smile.

He said that this job will help him financially to assist his 2 brothers in school and also to provide for the family. The Regional Manager of the Tsitsikamma base, Antoinette Jini, said that WoF is always glad to bring changes in the lives of young people as there will be other new fire fighters getting jobs while these ones have got greener pastures, however she was really happy for the young people who just got new jobs.
