- The police officer could be heard sharing some words of encouragement with the students before they went in for their exams
- The officer told the students God would not forget them because of the way they had warmly received him in the school
- The police officer who doubles as a man of God then led the students into words of prayer
Police officers understand that hard work, selfless service and leading by example are necessary for law enforcement.
It is not common to receive recognition for a job well done, though officers affect the lives of the citizens they serve on a daily basis.
One such officer was captured in a now-viral video shared by Kapseret Member of Parliament (MP) Oscar Sudi on Tuesday, March 30.
In the video, the officer could be seen giving some words of advice to a group of students just before they went in for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
Although Legit.ng could not independently identify the school's name and location, the police officer, who was addressing the students in Swahili, led them into prayer.
"You know how we are connected with you...the Bible says the blessings of God follow us whenever we set our foot. When God sees his vessel has been welcomed somewhere, he does not forsake them," he said
Proud Kenyans rushed to the comment section to leave praises for the unidentified officer saying he had proven that not every officer serving in the Kenya National Police Service was bad.
Here are some of the opinions Kenyans had for the man in uniform:
Maggie Nyamz opined:
"Just because men and women in uniformed forces do their jobs and are hated by many who demean them to be uneducated, vulgar and other negativities. These men and women are human too, yes they do make mistakes in their line of duty just like any other employees. They have kind hearts, love and have a conscience. They have families and loved ones. All in all, they are not aliens but human."
Elias Mutharimi Kangai called for the officer's promotion:
"Promotion is coming your way just for this reason in Jesus name, you will be called soon by people higher than you and be lifted also, amen."
Mau Ok wrote:
"Such officers are never recognised nor appreciated but God will bless and remember them."
Evelyn Chebet wrote:
'Indeed a very rare breed. Be blessed always as you continue blessing others and bring change to our police force."
