WARRANT Officer Derrick Thembelani Minya took part in the 42km Mandela Race in Pietermaritzburg on 30 August 2014 and finished in just over four hours.

This year on the same date, he participated in the 21km Mandela Race in Pietermaritzburg and finished in a time of 2:2.

“Amanzimtoti SAPS management and members congratulate him for his achievements in completing and receiving medals for both races,” Captain Charlene van der Spuy reported.

“He has been a member of the SAPS Striders Athletic Club since 2012 and is attached to the visible policing component and has been part of the Amanzimtoti Police Station legal office since 2011. This serves as encouragement to other members to keep fit and participate in sport,” she said. - Supplied
