A FORMER employee of the Department of Correctional Services, Nad Nayager (56), has resigned after 31 years service to focus on family business with his wife Nolitha and their three children.

Department of Correctional Services employees held a farewell party for Nayager last week.
Bonginkosi Mbotshwa, the communication officer of the Department of Correctional Services in Kokstad Management Area said Nayager was an inspiration to staff.
“He taught us many things about the department
and we will miss him.”

In an interview with Fever at his home in Kokstad, Nayager thanked the department and his colleagues for mentoring him.

“I was faced with many challenges in the department, but I overcame all and learnt many positive things. I was given an opportunity to go to Australia to learn about international Corrections and I was happy to get that opportunity of travelling outside the country.

“I have resigned from the department because I want to focus on family business and involve myself in community projects. I want to do things I love instead of sitting in the office for the rest of my life,” said Nayager.

While in the department he participated in Sukuma Sakhe operations representing the Department of Correctional Services.  
He thanked stakeholders in the security cluster including the SAPS, Road Traffic Inspectorate, GKM Protection Services, Department of Justice and other departments.

When not working, he jogs with his daughter Lee-Ann. He said he wants to help his former colleagues establish a golf club to keep employees fit and healthy.

Nayager was the senior manager in the Department of Correctional Services under Kokstad Management Area.He joined the department in 1986 in Durban and spent eight years there before moving to Umzinto as head of the correctional centre. He spent 10 years in Umzinto and then moved to Kokstad as head of correctional centre, where he remained for 18 months. He also worked for the department in Empangeni for more than two years. In 2007, he returned to Kokstad as senior manager in the Kokstad Management Area.
