Several parts of northern Kenya have been experiencing heavy rainfall in recent days that has resulted in loss of lives and livestock.

One officer in Loglogo location, Marsabit County, has, however, become an instant sensation online after photos of his selfless act during the raging floods warmed the hearts of many.

In photos seen by Ureport, Kevin Otunga is seen helping livestock cross from one side of a stream to the other.

Armed with just his strong arms and bravery, Otunga carries livestock safely to the other side as herders watch in amazement.

Netizens labelled him ‘the real shujaa’ saying his seniors ought to reward such selfless acts in the police service.

Here are some of the reactions:

There are so many stories of soldiers on the ground doing more than is required of them. It’s good to appreciate them. Unfortunately they aren’t appreciated by their Seniors ???? — ???????? Turquoise ???? (@ssbo) October 21, 2019

Very true surely good soldiers go unappreciated, our duty as a citizen is to bring good soldiers to the limelight
