Isaak Mukendi - Newlands Forest Car Guard

Isaak Mukendi - Newlands Forest Car Guard

Personal message

Isaak is back! 

Isaak Mukendi has been the Fire Station parking car guard at the Newlands Forest for many years. At the end of 2017 he became desperately ill and had to go to Pretoria to be cared for by his family and Church. His sons stepped in and covered his duties, not knowing if he would recover.

We all know Isaak with the big smile and friendly welcome.
Whilst we walkers enjoy the peace and beauty of the forest, he not only looks after our cars, (come rain or sunshine), but will keep any stray dog safe until the owner is located. He always has a dog lead to lend you and runs a very handy lost property department. You will find him reading or studying during the quiet times. Isaak is a great asset to the community.

Isaak was unable to work for eight months, which must have been a terrible worry for him. I am asking the Newlands community to contribute to this campaign to assist with his loss of earnings. Isaak would be very appreciative and would put any donations towards further educating his sons.

Welcome back Isaak, we missed you!
