Siyabonga Cwele👔 Visited a Home Affairs Employee Whose Name Went Viral🌍 After She Assisted Clients After 🕛Hours
"If the job is big or small, do it well."
This is the motto by which a Department of Home Affairs employee, who recently took social media by storm, lives.
Nosipho Mkhupheka, who works as a supervisor, assisted 40 people beyond her working hours at the department's offices in Scottburgh, KwaZulu-Natal on Friday.
Her efforts were so remarkable that they even attracted the attention of Minister of Home Affairs Siyabonga Cwele, who paid her a visit, taking her some chocolates and a bouquet of flowers.
"I start my work at 07:15 instead of 07:30 and I normally knock off an hour or two after 16:00. I only leave the office after seeing that majority of our clients are being attended to. I didn't think that working after hours on Friday would attract so much attention.
"I am grateful for the response and messages of encouragement I have received since then. I am not a person who loves social media but I was humbled when I was informed that I was trending," she said.
The 53-year-old mother of four told News24 that she took her job seriously didn't like to see people ill-treated at the offices she works at.
She has been working for the department for the past 30 years.
"It is a part of my life to assist people no matter who they are. I always ensure that I attend to people with a smile. I am a supervisor at work and I must lead by example.
"I can't stand and watch when clients are not attended to by my colleagues. I want people who visit our offices to leave satisfied, knowing that their problems have been attended to," she said.
