George Municipality proudly congratulates Benjamin Ndzipho an artisan plumber, for an outstanding 35 years of dedicated service. Mr Ndzipho commenced his journey with George Municipality on 22 February 1989, appointed at the Directorate of Civil Engineering Services in the Street and Stormwater Section.

Reflecting on the early days, Ndzipho recalls a time marked by rules and respect within the Municipality during the 1980s and 1990s. He played a significant role in various projects, including the Upgrading of Montagu Street in Blanco, covering the stretch from Blanco Post Office to Fancourt. His involvement also extended to the construction of Platner Boulevard, connecting Checkers in York Street to Barkhuizen Drive. During this period, the Loerie Park area was in its pristine state, with Benjamin actively participating in its clearing.

In the 1980s and 1990s, all road-building materials, kerbs, and concrete were sourced from the quarry above the Old Water Treatment Plant, located on 9th Avenue in Denneoord. Mr. Ndzipho transitioned from Streets and Stormwater to Water Distribution in 1995, where he continues to make valuable contributions.

Beyond his professional achievements, Benjamin Ndzipho is a humble golfer, boasting a handicap of 10 at the George Golf Club and a handicap of 5 at the Glenwood Golf Course.

The Director of the Civil Engineering Services Department, Mr. Jannie Koegelenberg, extends heartfelt congratulations to Benjamin Ndzipho on behalf of the Directorate for his remarkable achievement. “We appreciate and acknowledge his enduring commitment to service,” Koegelenberg said.
