2010-12-06 00:00

SHELLY Beach petrol pump attendant and cashier Sizwe Mbhele enjoys the South Coast. When he is not at work, he travels to Durban where he is studying administrative human resources management, something he hopes to make a career of. The Witness spoke to the friendly and knowledgeable Mbhele to canvas his opinion on a few issues.

What keeps you on the south coast?

Mbhele: The economic viability of the South Coast is good and the people are friendly to each other regardless of where they come from.

What do you do to keep healthy?

Mbhele: I drink a lot of water and I make sure that I am always on my feet at work. I also get the taxi to drop me off far from my house so that I can walk a little.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Mbhele: Securing a job in Durban within the municipality’s HR department.

What can our local municipality do to improve its service delivery?

Mbhele: I think they are doing well, but there are a lot of municipalities in poor positions; they are very short of skills and that needs to be addressed.

Where will you be for Christmas and New Year?

Mbhele: I will be working.

What is the biggest problem facing South Africa today?

Mbhele: Unemployment and HIV and Aids.

Where would you like to go to for a holiday?

Mbhele: I have never been out of KZN. I would like to go to Zimbabwe to see how things are there.

What do you look for in a partner?

Mbhele: I am not married, but I am prepared. I don’t mind about race, education or money. She must be respectful, listen and have a good personality.

What sports do you enjoy?

Mbhele: I am from the rural areas so we never had time for sport. Politics and religion, but not sport.
