Stepping in to the shoes of the veteran being a novice has never been a child’s play.
I would like to pass my sincere thanks to the board of the station and the management of the radio station for trusting me into the position of being a Finance and Admin manager. I understand clearly what it means and the accountability it carries. I therefore bind myself to the ethical practices and principles applicable to the profession.
I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to my predecessor Mr M D Nyawo (the late) for having laid sound departmental policy. I also appreciate the team he has worked with shortly before his resignation early this year 2006. It is an undisputed fact that their contribution to the organisation has been so inspiring and it brought the section of finance and admin to the level where it is today.
The department of Finance and admin looks into a variety of tasks amongst other tasks is to.
Performing the above tasks and other auxiliary tasks is quite fascinating, especially to know that, other than being behind the microphone on the studio, there are a lot of activities taking place behind the scenes that sustains the organisation.
Looking into the above schedule you will eventually see that without dedication and discipline you might fail to meet the demands. On the 29th of April 2006 we as a staff had a farewell party for B I Mavundla and K B Buthelezi; this is what Bheki told us in that party “…ngiyazile incazelo yokuthi kuyini ukusebenza ngomphathi wami uMnumzane Simon Ntsele, noma ngabe yini engingacabanga ukuyenza empilweni angeke ngisaba nankinga.”
These are the words of a diligent man Mr B I who confess to have gained a lifetime principle. I concur with him 100%, our leader is modelling and mentoring us to maximize our potential.
The financial year we are ending today, is characterised with lots events that are to our advantage and those that are not.
The transaction on back-up engine was a huge breakthrough since weather conditions normally disturbs our electricity.
To the existing assets, we were so unfortunate that our van has been involved in an accident, resulting it to be beyond repairs. Processes are underway with the insurance company as our case was clear to be a mere accident with no negligence attached.
The lack of transport has hindered our workings lately. Getting another transport facility is still a challenge.
Lastly I would like to thank the donors and our clients who at all costs identify themselves with us. We appreciate all those who transact things like sound system, public service announcements and other services we are offering.
At the end of the day, in our minds we have our listeners who consistently and side by side abide with us. Let us all shine where we are with Maputaland Community Radio Station.
