We profile a member of our team in every issue of our newsletter. This month’s spotlight is ANELISIWE MPAKA, our face of AfriServ, our RECEPTIONIST.
Tell us something about yourself in a few lines.
Thank you very much for giving me this golden opportunity. My name is Anelisiwe Mpaka and I am hard working, a go-getter, and an independent lady. I am absolutely passionate about working with people.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I have a few reasons to get out of bed in the morning; my very first reason would have to be my daughter, Oluhle; I am privileged to provide and care for her. My second and equally important reason is to pursue my own goals for achieving success, both personally and professionally. I always strive to do better and to be a better person, and add value to my community.
If you could change one thing that could make the world a better place, what would it be?
It would definitely have to be crime, and the high levels of it in KTC, which is part of the greater Nyanga Township, where I live. I have been exposed to too many violent crimes in my area. Crime is one element in our society I would definitely love to change.
What is your role at AfriServ?
I am the receptionist here at AfriServ. However, my role is not limited only to the role of receptionist (phone calls, boardroom bookings, stationery orders, and such); I also assist with weekly, bi-weekly, and fortnightly payroll for all our on-site staff.
What does working at AfriServ mean to you?
Working at AfriServ means another opportunity for me to be able to provide for my daughter, as well as a chance to learn and to grow as an individual. Moreover, it is an opportunity for me to pursue my dreams.

Rooftop garden construction is an international trend which is catching on rapidly in South Africa too. We have done a few in and around the Waterfront, and are currently working on the rooftop of The Onyx Apartments in the Cape Town CBD. We’ve hand-selected rocks from the Contermanskloof Quarry which will serve as features in the plant beds, and can’t wait to see the landscape design come to life at The Onyx!
A few of our other completed projects over the last month
Planting/implementation work of a pedestrian walkway between the EMS and Life Science buildings at the University of the Western Cape. This was previously a roadway, which has now been closed off to vehicular traffic.With the good rains we enjoyed over the last few months, residents are keen on reviving their gardens for the Summer season again. Here are two gardens we have been contracted to plant and maintain in Hermanus and Llundudno.If you require professional landscaping services, do get in touch with Tony Krammer on 021 418-4000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
