Celebrating 52 Years Service with the Group!

Share this page:

Alpheus Rakgable was only 18 years old when he started as Estate Driver at the Grenshoek Tea Estate in May 1967. The tea estate was part of Sapekoe Estates, now Eastern Produce Estates South Africa.


Alpheus received a 20-year service gift watch from Mr. Penwell, former Managing Director of Sapekoe Estates in 1987. 


When Sapekoe Estates closed down the tea operations in 2007, Alpheus was relocated to EPSA's Wales estates as Estate Driver. He continued to work at the Wales estates until his retirement at the end of July 2019, at the age of 70 years. 

An extremely loyal and trusted driver for 52 years, we wish him all best for his retirement!
