Just hours after Ureport highlighted the story of an officer who controls traffic at the Kenyatta Avenue/Koinange Street intersection, Kenyans online have continued to heap praises on him for his diligence.
Only identified as Ben, it seems his generous works have gone ahead of him as netizens highlighted several instances they interacted with him.
Described as a gentleman by many, the officer has been lauded for being professional and adopting a rational approach to various incidents on Kenyatta Avenue and Koinange Street.
Below we have sampled some of the incidents highlighted by Kenyans online.
Rose Kariuki: I can personally attest on this policeman. He is very dedicated calm, collected, virtuous and a real human being in uniform. Seen him many years. There is also another senior officer on Langata Road Mbagathi road Mutune who needs recognition for solving Langata road issues.
Kate Sixiouie Rankz I agree. This guy is a real gentleman. Whenever am am driving around GPO and see him I always see a dedicated man to his job. I once told him "Afisaa unafanya kazi nzuri sana". May God reward him richly.
Peter Onyango Omollo He once served justice to his colleagues. I was in a citi hoppa at Kenyatta avenue-Uhuru highway roundabout. Then a toyota fielder hit us from the sides. The occupants of fielder came out wielding police radios and immediately handcuffed hopa driver. This cop came, armed with a piece of chalk. He concluded the fielder was on the wrong. The officers couldn't believe their own disowning them.
Alice Sherry I declare and decree in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that this officer will never lack in his entire life together with his generation, in the mighty name of Jesus. May he live to experience the blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever Amen.
James Samuel When God has pointed you, even the blind will tell the colour of clothes you are puting on. May God bless him & his family for that good work noticed.
Nyatado Odhes In this league, you will find Inspector Mutune at the Tmall roundabout. The fellow gives it all. In a minute you will see him at the roundabout, then walking all the way towards Wilson airport, to ensure Langata road is unclogged, before sweating it again towards Madaraka, to pull traffic before ending up in Mai Mahiu, towards Moi Education center, come rain or shine, Mutune is the man for Traffic in Nairobi. Part of his Job is also to ensure Pedestrians crossing the road in droves from Kibera to Industrial area and back are safe and are not delayed at the very dangerous crossings. Hats off for Mutune.
Jude Jelimo Very good officer.. I remember he assisted me when matatu hit ma car n they harassed me.so kind he deserves promotion
Alex Gichomo One evening it was raining cats and dogs and he didn’t have an umbrella, I stopped and told him to get an umbrella from my Car’s boot. He was very happy.
Samuel Mukiti I support his promotion... I usually call him 'omwami'. The only objective and passionate traffic cop I have seen in Nairobi. He is solution oriented and not opportunistic. Always ready to excel in his job.I recommend also.
Kenneth Oyia One day he caught me on the wrong along moi avenue i tried to bribe him but to my suprise he refused to take the money n forgave me...sure this officer is one of a kind
Lenz Kolil I agree this guy is a real Gentleman. One day I saw him helping a physically challenged person cross the road. Not forgetting his big uniforms he has (oversive) but he does his work diligently.
Alex Kamande This officer is exemplary. On several occassions I even begged to buy tea but refused! Come rain, come sunshine, he's out helping motorists. All police should emulate this and Kenyans will have a different perception.
George Ajode I worked as a bus conductor with Stagecoach Kbs then, this officer was very good n fair when assessing accident scenarios, n did his job with all professionalism required.
