Le Roux Family Reference:
Zodwa worked for us from June 2012 to March 2023. In that time I have seen her work diligently and professionally. She never called in sick, and when she had personal things to attend to she always made sure that she worked the days she missed. She is a very lovely person. Hard-working.
She soon became part of the family. I don’t think I have seen anyone work as consistently as her over the last ten years. She doesn’t need any training, only basic instruction on what’s required from you personally. You will only need to tell her once and she will remember. She also keeps you up to date on what’s needed from a grocery/ cleaning supply point of view. She will make her own tea and lunch and never uses anything you’re short of. An absolute pleasure and an asset for any home!
She managed our family home of 20+ rooms and 6 bathrooms as well as the kids’ first 2-bedroom apartments with ease and with a smile. She took care of the youngest from age 13 to 23, Zodwa aided in the youngest’s growth and is and will always be a second mother to her.
She cleans places you didn’t even think of cleaning EVERY WEEK like behind the fridge and under the couches/ beds. Unfortunately, we moved to Durban and we miss her every day.
Titus Family Reference:
She has been in my employ for approximately two years, fulfilling the role of a comprehensive housekeeper. Her responsibilities encompass a spectrum of household tasks, including cleaning, laundry, ironing, and the care of my canine companion. Demonstrating a keen awareness of inventory levels, she proactively communicates when supplies are running low.
In addition to her housekeeping duties, she serves as a vigilant observer of the household infrastructure, promptly reporting any issues or required maintenance. During my relocation, she played an instrumental role in facilitating the packing of my belongings, ensuring a smooth transition to the new residence.
With a wealth of experience as a domestic worker spanning several years, she exhibits a profound understanding of her responsibilities, obviating the need for explicit instructions. Her familiarity with the intricacies of my residence surpasses my own, reflecting her meticulous attention to detail.
Her performance is marked by efficiency and a commendable work ethic, instilling confidence in her ability to execute tasks without the necessity of supervision. Notably trustworthy and punctual, she has consistently maintained the highest standards of integrity. The absence of any security concerns is a testament to her reliability.
Beyond her professional attributes, she possesses a delightful personality and is amenable to engaging in conversations or respectfully providing space, adapting seamlessly to the dynamics of the household. In essence, she has seamlessly integrated into the fabric of our family, embodying a harmonious blend of competence, trustworthiness, and congeniality.
