Home Affairs opening and closing hours for serving clients are from 8am to 4pm and while most would want to pack up and go… this South African went beyond the call of duty!
Scottburgh, South Africa – No one wants to go to Home Affairs, especially not on a Friday!
Home Affairs in South Africa have a pretty bad reputation and most social media posts are filled within frustration, standing in long queues or lack of service.
But just last week Marius Botha shared a post on Facebook that is going viral for all the right reasons.
Mrs Nosipho Mkhupheka works at the Scottburgh Home Affairs and while most of the country packed up for the weekend, Mkhupheka stayed at her desk – with a smile on her face – and helped over 40 South Africans get their Home Affairs admin done!
“I want to thank Mrs Nosipho Mkhupheka for her unselfish and exceptional service beyond the call of duty.
This wonderful lady works at the Department of Home Affairs in Scottburgh.
Today at 16:00 all her colleagues left their workstations and went home. Mrs Mkhupheka stayed and help the last 40 customers all on her own and with a smile on her face!!!
You are my hero. South Africa needs more people like you. Thank you. We salute you.”
Sometimes the smallest things, are the biggest things… and it’s simple stories like these that remind us that there are amazing people in our beautiful country that are willing to just be kind.
We hope the Department of Home Affairs recognises Mrs Nosipho Mkhupheka for her amazing level of service (and helping with their reputation).
