Two officers take care of their hood

Two Green Point safety officers have been commended for their dedication and service. The Green Point and Oranje-Kloof City Improvement District (GP/OKCID) has praised Zukile Melville Hakana for his period of service as he faces retirement. Hakana worked with the GP/OKCID from 2008 to the end of April this year. He was not absent a single day, or ever late, says Marc Truss, GP/OKCID CEO. “He is a quiet and friendly gentleman who was always seen smiling at passersby. Now that Hakana is in his sixties and facing retirement, we have secured a position with him within Securus, which provides our security team, to allow him to continue with a job that better suits his age and his health.”

Foot patrol security officer Siviwe Gobeni has been praised after making more than six arrests in three months. Truss says: “He goes above and beyond to protect people and their homes – he puts his life on the line and takes initiative. It’s very admirable.” One of the arrests was of a suspected house burglar in De Waterkant. “He’s admired for his exceptional reporting skills and team communication, with a shining reputation for being alert and quick to respond in crisis. He is one of our best assets,” adds GP/OKCID operations manager Percy Mokoena.
