Veteran Crew Leader now employed at City of Tshwane

10 Mar,2016Profiles

41 years old Lucas Chisana, a veteran Crew Leader from the Mdala Team in Gauteng has recently exited the programme on a positive note.

He is now employed in the Department of Water and Sanitation at the City of Tshwane in Pretoria.

‘‘In 2014 I acquired my multi operator, TLB and driver license in an effort to upskill myself so I can be eligible for other jobs. At last it paid off,’’ said Chisana.

Lucas is one of the first Crew Leaders who started with the programme a decade ago based in Rust De Winter.

‘‘I don’t regret being part of the programme. I become quite emotional looking at the time I spend not up-skilling myself,’’ said Chisana during his last interview with WoFire News in 2014.

On the new job, he said he was happy to service his community. ‘‘I am aging and I need to have a better salary and benefits to care for my family,’’ said Lucas.
