Namport's alumni, Benny Farmer, Without teamwork it is impossible to reach one's goals.

The Namibian Port's Authority (Namport) rolled out the red carpet to honour all long serving employees at the Annual Long Service Awards Cere­mony.

A total number of 129 staff members from the Port of Walvis Bay received certificates and trophies at the glamourous event, with the main objective being to celebrate the efforts of colleagues who have contributed towards the productivity of the entity over a continuous period of years.

Speaking at the function, acting chief executive officer Kavin Harry said that the commitment and dedication displayed by the recipients has earned the entity the status of being an employer of choice.

As a ports authority, Namport remains committed to providing world class port services to all sea-borne trade, excellent customer services, sustainable growth and social responsibility with the ultimate aim of contributing to the Namibian dream of becoming a ­logistics hub for the Southern African Develop­ment Community.

Mr Russell Eyberg received the award in the most senior category, which is 45 years of service. He told his colleagues that commitment and a love for his job made him come back to his workstation year after year.

Encouraging the recipients was Namport alumni Mr Benny Farmer, who had dedicated 43 years of his life to the entity. The now retired farmer reminded the guests that “without teamwork it is impossible to reach one's goals”, and further urged everyone to continue working as a team at all times.

Long service awards and certificates are conferred to staff members who have been in the employment of the company for continuous years, in the categories 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years respectively.

Special appreciation went to eight employees who have served Nam­port at the Port of Walvis Bay continuously: Mr Shaheed Saban, Mr Richard­ Goliath, Mr Josef Nghiholiwe, Mr Ernest Strauss and Mrs Kathleen van Heerden (30 years), Mr Johannes “Wikus” Oberholster (35 years) and Mr Israel Oskar­ (40 years).

The Port of Lüderitz will have its long-­service awards function on 04 December when 16 staff members will be ­honoured.
