  • A woman in Thika went out of her way to feed police officers manning the Thika-Murang'a roadblock near the Bluepost Delmonte area.

    In photos seen by Kenyans.co.ke, the lady who had the food packed in the boot of her vehicle approached the armed officer and extended the kind gesture.

    Speaking to reporters, she said that she was out to appreciate the police for their tireless efforts to ensure Kenyans are safe during the Covid-19 pandemic period.

    Her approach was rather unorthodox considering residents in the five counties  - Nairobi, Machakos, Kiambu, Nakuru and Kajiado could not cross over to Murang'a county or other neighbouring areas.

    Her actions elicited reactions online with many appreciating her kind actions towards the officers.

    "What an act of kindness. You only see such in the USA. Stay blessed lady," A user Mike Kinyanjua wrote.

    "This is nice. These guys are doing a lot of work," Eric Kimani opined.

    Such acts from Kenyans towards officers have been witnessed before. In April 2020, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i praised three women who have gone out of their way to feed enforcement officers.

    The three ladies had earlier explained that they had been volunteering to feed the officers at a roadblock. 

    "We passed by this place on Saturday and noted that these officers were very thirsty and didn't have any water. We gave them sodas.

    "When we passed by the area in the evening, they told us to bring them food and that is when we made the decision to be feeding them," Faith Mailu, a resident in Tala stated.

    In April 2020, the then-Coast Coast Region Police Commander Rashid Yakub also returned the favour proving that police officer have a loving humane side, despite an overwhelmingly negative public view of the police service.

    In a video that surfaced online in thesame month, the police boss was moved by a woman and her two children who had made the most pitiful effort to protect themselves against the Covid-19 virus.

    While everyone around them at the Likoni Channel crossing was wearing a protective mask in line with the government's guidelines, the three had only managed to repurpose plastic bottles into something resembling a mask. Touched by the plight of the three who stood out in the most unenviable way, the commander bought new facemasks for them and personally put them on their faces.
