The Plastic Packaging handyman

ESTER KAMATI

For a 63-year-old, Hangero is quite an energetic man who always ensures that his work is done to the best of his ability. He started working at Plastic Packaging as a learner technician in 1995 following training in the auto-electrical field. Throughout the years, Hangero has gained experience doing all types of repairs and currently he is the handyman at the Plastic Packaging factory.

Although he is mainly required to do repairs in the factory, Hangero also attends to any repairs that may need to be done at the administration building.

“I enjoy working at Plastic Packaging and the reason why I have been working for so many years is because I love the people and we are one big, happy family,” he said.

Although no two days are ever the same, Hangero says his day usually begins with collecting parts that may be needed for repairs from different suppliers in Windhoek and then overseeing any maintenance task that needs to be done.

Hangero was recently rewarded for 20 years’ loyal service to the company, which he is proud of. “I am looking forward to my 25-year reward,” he exclaimed.

He was born at Upington in South Africa, and currently resides in Okahandja, from where he commutes to Windhoek every day.

“It makes me proud to be able to provide for my family,” he says. He takes pride in the work that he does and the fact that he has a house to his name, in which his family can lead a happy life.

The father of three and grandfather of four children describes his family as his pride and joy and says he spends as much time with them as he can. In addition, he enjoys watching soccer and playing chess in his free time.
