It seems lady luck has smiled at Ben, a traffic officer based at the intersection of Koinange Street and Uhuru Highway.
Kenyans on social media led by Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdullahi have called for the promotion of the devoted cop who has been in the service for 10 years.
One after the other, netizens explained how the no-nonsense cop discharges his duties with diligence.
Apparently, officer Ben doesn’t only control traffic but also offers advice to motorists caught with minor mistakes.
Here are some of the moving comments on Twitter from a section of Kenyans who have had an experience with the officer.
“This policeman never takes bribes and is probably the most dedicated and hardworking policeman in Kenya…He works at the intersection of Koinange street and Uhuru Highway…Why hasn’t he been promoted in the last 10 years?” wrote Lawyer Ahmednassir.
“He is a gentleman, a man of substance. We celebrate you, Ben,” wrote Marto.
“Believable. Hata hana tumbo kubwa. Hope his honesty will be acknowledged, encouraged, celebrated and rewarded,” said Chirlie.
It’s Monda said, “Yes, he caught me in an unforgivable situation, but I was surprised he set me free.”
“This the only police officer that has never asked for a bribe regardless of the traffic offense….he would rather talk to you and explain the offense you have committed and request you politely to be careful next time and let you continue with your journey,” said Christos Manasseh.
