  3. Sivalingum Ramaraju (Collin) says:

    I am 47 years of age and would like to be part of the team. I understand that the age group I am at flags a red signal. However I am knowledgeable and willing to be a office assistant or conduct clerical work to optimize productivity within the offices and thus assist the crime fighters more on the ground work.

    I am currently unemployed and healthy. I feel there are very little opportunities out there for my age group that have so much still o offer. I feel there is somewhat a lack of mature and wise people currently in the SAPS and therefor most of which are negatives being shown to surface now.
