It goes without saying that most African politicians are used to giving out promises to the voters only to fail to deliver once they get into power.
Some of the promises include better health services, employment opportunities and infrastructure such as good roads. However, most of them do not deliver on their promises, disappointing those who voted for them.
It is because of such disappointments that some Kenyans recently decided to do some of the things they were promised by politicians on their own.
Nicholas Muchemi Kamau from Kaganda village in Murarandia, Murang'a county recently touched many hearts after taking it upon himself to help fellow area residents by single-handedly carving a road through a hill to enable people move from one point to the other without much hassle.
Legit.ng has learnt Muchemi embarked on the arduous task of 'creating' the road after a neighbour closed a foot-path that passed through his farm and which was being used by locals.
According to another resident identified as Philip Kinyungu Nyambura who was among the first people to post the man's pictures on social media, the philanthropic villager spent about a week to dig up one kilometer of the road through a hilly terrain.
Phillip added that Muchemi thought it wise to make the road after residents started complaining of using a longer route to get to their destination.
Legit.ng understands the man works as a watchman at Kaganda Primary School.
Meanwhile, a gala seller moved people to tears by his heart-melting actions when he spotted a group of prisoners in a van stuck in Lagos traffic.
According to an Instagram user, the prisoners were being transported in a Nigerian prison force van heading towards Ikoyi Prison.
As usual, the prisoners stretched out their hands through the tiny holes by the sides of the van and the gala seller began distributing his market to them.
When the van began moving, he dropped his basket by the side of the road, grabbed a handful of the snacks and ran after them to make sure everyone gets a share.
