“When bigger institutions like the district municipality tap prolific human resources from us, it is a clear indication that we are doing well in terms of staff empowerment and development.” These are the words of Musina Municipality Municipal Manager, Mr Nathi Tshiwanammbi. He was addressing workers who converged at the municipal office to bid farewell to two managers who have left Musina to join the Vhembe District Municipality.

Mpho Mudau, who served Musina Municipality as Local Economic Development Manager for the past four years, has been appointed Risk Manager at the district level. On the other hand, the Senior Manager in the Technical Department of Musina, Chuene Dinyake has taken up a position as Chief Technician of Project Management in Vhembe.

Tshiwanammbi said although the municipality still has a challenge of manpower, it would not be proper to stand on employees’ ways if they get greener pastures somewhere. “I always tell people that if opportunities come, they must grasp them with both hands. We know that there were a lot of people who applied for the positions in the district municipality but the fact that these two went through all the recruitment processes and succeed should be appreciated.”

He said he knew the two managers as dedicated individuals who are always ready to serve the community. “Your contributions in this municipality has laid a solid service delivery foundation and I have no doubt that you are going to represent us well at the district level. We all know that you have an open door policy and we will always keep in touch with you whenever we need something here. We wish you good luck in your new employment ventures.”

When responding, Mpho Mudau said he was sad and happy at the same time. “I am sad because Musina was my second home and I had a nice experience of working with good colleagues. I am happy because I’m climbing a career ladder which will build me to be a better person in life. I will always remember the good memories of my colleagues in Musina but I have to move on to learn new things in life.”

On the other hand, Chuene Dinyake said: “I thank the management of Musina for giving me the opportunity to realize my potential for the past five years. I have learnt a lot of things that will help me to take up my new position with ease. Indeed, there is time to meet and time to part.”
