PHOTOS: Man shocks Officials at Hima Cement as he Shows Up for Job Interview driving a Grader

KAMPALA, UGANDA: Paddy Kitandwe, a Ugandan male adult shocked officials at Hima Cement Factory when he showed up for a job interview at while driving a grader.

According to his Twitter account, Paddy had been out of work since the pandemic broke out and he decided to do as many available jobs as possible including working at a construction site.

As luck would have it, a call came through, inviting Kitandwe to an interview at Hima Cement Offices. He, however, was tending to his job at the construction site but all he had to do was ‘clean up’ a bit and head for Hima.

While he sorted the clothing part though, Kitandwe had one more thing to figure out – moving from the construction site to Hima Offices and a subtle decision was made, the grader!

Kitandwe ‘crush-landed’ but he was good to go.

“I got a job interview call from Hima Cement and I realised I would have been late if I first went home to change. So I grabbed my suit and papers and drove the grader from work and went for my interview with it,” Paddy said.
