- Ephraim will now be rewarded for his work ethic
Ephraim Sibeko, the luggage handler at Lanseria Airport who impressed South Africans recently with his dedication to his work, is set to be rewarded.
As Briefly.co.za reported, a traveller named Janine Brand filmed Ephraim at work and shared the video on social media, where it went viral.
South Africans applauded him for making sure the handle of each piece of luggage faced outwards. This made it easy for travellers to retrieve them.
Speaking to News24, Janine said she has travelled around the world but hasn't seen a single luggage handler who does this. She added:
I was just so amazed at his work ethic in doing that. No degree or form of education can teach you that.
Ephraim has been working at Lanseria Airport since 2012. His work ethic caught the eyes of his superiors early on.
Luckson Makhuvha, Bidvest Protea Coin's branch manager, said a reward for Ephraim's dedication is being discussed. He added:
He really went the extra mile. We have never seen this before. But after it all blew up, we decided that this is the kind of work ethic we want to instil in all the other guys as well.
This reward will also include a medal of recognition, Luckson said. In the meantime, Ephraim remains humble and goes about his business.
