The South African Police Service has shown appreciation to Simon Talamo Moila, a diligent member who has been serving the force for 28 years.
He started at the SAPS as a cleaner. He worked at the SAPS Tshwane Academy in Pretoria West. In 2004, Mr Moila took a transfer to the Soshanguve Police Station where he assumed his duties as docket store manager.
At the time of his promotion, Mr Moila had no matric qualification. He persevered and obtained his matric certificate at the Rietgat Police Station at the age of 40.
His passion for his work was recently given a thumbs-up by the Provincial Inspection team, which visited the station recently. The team was so impressed and amazed with Mr Moila’s meticulous and impeccable style of filing and archiving dockets, they even vowed to copy his best practice and duplicate it at other police stations.
He says that his 28 years in service have taken him from a nobody to a somebody. He encouraged the younger generation in the SAPS to toughen up and grab all the opportunities that come their way.
The SAPS honoured him on social media with the following message:
“Mr Simon Moila, your patriotic and selfless deeds are recognised and appreciated by the management of the SAPS."
Social media users also shared kind words for the man. Facebook user Molemisi Rabapane said:
"Keep up the good work brother."
While Bongani Madondo said:
"You are the man baba. So wish others can learn your style keep it up."
