Dedicated essential worker motivated to succeed

May 28, 2020


“I'm driven by the fact that I don’t have a degree, so I need to prove to myself that I can do more and better than the next person who has a degree. Even if it means I have to work twice as hard. I will work ten times harder to achieve success.”

These are the words of Sizo Njova from Glen Austin in Midrand, a dedicated 32-year old Acting Operations Manager and one of the country’s essential workers.

Njova is responsible for ensuring that all operational processes run smoothly for Sixty60 Boxed, a new collaboration between Sixty60 and CFS which offers same-day delivery of groceries and household essentials to selected parts of the Western Cape and Gauteng.

“I’m hands-on with the team and their activities, so I get to work early to ensure we are prepared for the day. I only stop working once I'm sure everything that needs to be done is done - even if it means I work when I get home.”

The father of two children - aged 8 and 3 - says during these difficult times, one has to learn to adapt. “Besides complying with the lockdown regulations, we all need to change our habits to more healthy ones and learn to appreciate what we have so we can help those with less”.

The Shoprite Group salutes all its frontline employees - the thousands of individuals like Njova who are working tirelessly to ensure South Africans are provided with food and household essentials during this unprecedented time.
