“MY parents have celebrated my every success. I wish my dad was here to celebrate my recent success. I know he is in heaven rejoicing.
“I thank you (the SAPS hierarchy) for investing in us, the ‘human capital’. A happy workforce is a committed workforce. All a police officer wants to hear is a thank you and gratitude for the work done. I believe in the saying: ‘The hands that serve are holier than the lips that pray’.
Also, ‘To whom much is given, much is required’. Before we are born, our lives are destined. We have a choice to become who we were created to be.
“One smile from a child or just a hug is so rewarding. There can be no greater joy for a police officer than to hear a child say words of appreciation… If I can solve one person’s problem, make one person happy, that could start a chain reaction. We all need hope.
“I wish to continue with projects such as Each one Reach one, the Paper Bag campaign; and To Act is to Care.”
