For the longest time, Kenyan traffic police have been associated with corruption, especially when it comes to taking bribes from motorists.

We have seen videos of such rogue police officers going viral on various social media platforms. These videos taint the whole police department, which in turn makes Kenyans lose faith in them.

However, there are other positive things that some of these police officers do that are commendable.

Recently, there’s a police officer who was captured on camera trying to fill potholes along Nyayo Stadium.


The short video, which has since gone viral, was first posted by one Twitter user Eric Mugo, shows a police officer trying to fill in a pothole.

“I filmed this traffic policeman today morning fixing a bad pothole along the Nyayo stadium slip road. I commended him, and he politely said, ‘Nasaidia tu kidogo bro gari zisiaribike’ Let’s, please circulate till it reaches the superiors. The true Utumishi kwa wote cop!” said Eric.

These are just recent scenarios of traffic police doing good. Instead of constantly criticizing them, how about we commend those who do good and encourage others to do the same. Do you think traffic officers doing commendable jobs are recognized enough?
