With the help of a Chinese contractor, the traffic cop was seen repairing a dangerous pothole along Riverside Road – next to the Australian High Commission.
It has since been established through a source that the policeman had previously worked on two other potholes before he was captured working on the dangerous pothole.
The video elicited different reactions from netizens – the majority of them mesmerized by the simple act of kindness.
â€œI hope his colleagues would be like him and not always teething. That when you see a policeman, you expect trouble. Keep it up!â€ a commentator observed.
Frequent road users noted that the potholes were an absolute nightmare for them when healing to work or heading home.
â€œThose potholes have been a nightmare for months,â€ a netizen shared her experience using the road. Potholes are known to cause tire and wheel damage once the vehicle hits them, with the extent of the damage being less severe or more severe.
â€œTruly mtumishi kwa wote @IG_NPS. Salute to him,â€ another netizen appreciated.
According to the National Task Force on Police Reforms of 2009, an excellent citizen-centred approach is called for to improve police agenciesâ€™ relationships with local communities.
Community-based policing is a citizen-centred move, as it encourages partnership between the traffic police and motorist using the route.
Thus enhance good working relationships with the community when instances of crime arise.
