‘Prayer keeps me going’ – cash-in-transit guard
It’s a dangerous job with a minimum pay, but a prayer each morning is what some cash-in-transit security officers say keeps them going.
A security officer, who asked to remain anonymous, told News24 on Thursday that he feared for his life following the increase in heists.
“I feel a bit safer wearing my bulletproof vest, and I observe the robbers at all times [sic]. The first thing I do in the morning is pray. That keeps me going.”
The guard works in the position of third man for one of the country’s cash delivery security companies.
