KZN Frontline Hero: Sagie the long-distance truck driver

Sagie is a true Frontline Hero - he is a trucker from Durban to Johannesburg.


East Coast Drive is on a mission to recognise our frontline heroes in KZN, those people who are considered an essential service and are not able to safely tuck themselves away at home like the rest of us.

Listen to the podcast to hear more.

Sagie our Frontline Hero for Thursday was nominated by his wife.

She said: "I would like to acknowledge my husband, who is a trucker from Durban to Johannesburg. I cannot even imagine to tell you the million emotions that run through my mind every time he leaves on his trip."

East Coast Drive had a chat with Sagie and he was able to open up about his work and life - and how it has changed since lockdown. 

He also went on to tell us about how has the pandemic has affected his personal life and the physical relationship with those around him. 

Listen to the podcast to hear what Sagie had to say. 

Sagie, from the whole of South Africa, we thank you for the work you do to keep this country afloat and alive. You are a true Frontline Hero and thank you for taking the time to speak to us on East Coast Drive.

You’ll find them in the hospitals, on the front lines, in the grocery stores and even at your front door, delivering your essentials. They might not be wearing capes, but these Frontline Heroes are going above-and-beyond every single day of lockdown. 

That’s why PURA Soda & East Coast Radio are looking for you to tell us about your unsung heroes who are making a difference and helping people to live a little PURA during lockdown. 

Just email [email protected] and they could win a refreshing PURA Soda hamper.
