Folks, another update for you in the long running saga of the Djuma Tower.
Good news- the tower has been repaired and we have restored the radio link. Final testing is being completed but all looks good.
While we have been off air we have taken time to service both the Ganda and wait for it....yes the Jigga.
I know how many of you were keen that we brought the Jigga back into service so we have assembled some spare parts and we're close to having her back available.
To be honest we had assumed that the mast repair would take a little longer and had planned accordingly. So for example Marc has gone on early leave which means we are a bit short handed. With this in mind we will only be operating the PM drives for the next couple of days as we also need time to complete some of the outstanding vehicle servicing to bring us back to full operations.
First return drive will be PM tomorrow Saturday 27th.
Some more good news. I have been talking with Jacques this week to see if we can persuade him to join the team at Djuma. We have a verbal agreement and I hope to put pen to paper on a contract over the next few days.
Even more good news. I know that many of you were wondering what would become of Siphiwe once the Djuma water hole camera was handed over to the zoomies. Rest assured we don't want to loose Siphiwe, she will stay with the team working behind the scenes in a new admin role that she is keen to grow in to. This new role fits nicely with her own ambitions and is a direction that she wishes to go in, so its another win win.
