THE Ugu District Cluster of the SAPS were commended for their numerous years of service at a medal parade function at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre on Friday.

Members who served for 10, 20 and 30 years were given medals by Major-General Thembi Ndlovu and Brigadier Agnes Nxamagele.

In her keynote address, Nxamagele bid farewell to the Port Shepstone cluster as she has taken a position in Durban.

She said she was proud of the police officers who have served their communities and the country for such a long time.

“Well done to all of you who have reached this milestone.

“We appreciate the time you have sacrificed from your families.”

She paid tribute to fallen heroes and urged members not to get involved in corruption.

“It’s so sad when you see that some members have not received medals because they engaged in corruption.”

“You may get away with it the first few times, but eventually you get caught, so don’t engage in corruption.”

She also thanked all units within the cluster for always working together­.
