Oom Piet Kleu, a 94-year-old former provincial road traffic inspector, invited by Daniel Seevaraj, a former police member who also became a prominent senior Pietermaritzburg road traffic inspector, graced our presence at our last meeting of retired police officers at Chistlehurst Academics and Arts.
Oom Piet was born in Kranskop on 19 February 1927. He joined the Provincial Road Traffic Inspectorate in Pietermaritzburg and served for 32 years before his retirement.
We were privileged to have Seevaraj’s former colleague and friend in our midst. Members were overjoyed and gathered around him to hear him relate true stories of the past. Members wished him well and looked forward to seeing him at our future meetings. Our sincere appreciation to Daniel and Mellany Seevaraj for kindly providing the birthday cake.
Thank you Oom Piet for taking the time to spend with us.
