Police celebrated for her acts of kindness towards a man who had been robbed in Nairobi

A Police Constable with the Kenya Police Service was on Wednesday, November 16, celebrated for her acts of kindness towards a man who had been robbed in Nairobi. 

Corporal Christine Mugambi was lauded for lending more than a listening ear to Charles Waweru who had visited the police headquarters to report loss of his luggage. 

Waweru had alighted a matatu in Nairobi after a trip in Kitui when he noticed he did not have his load and decided to report the issue at the police headquarters at Jogoo House in Nairobi. 

Lucky for him, he met Corporal Mugambi who did not just listen to his case but also lend him some cash which he was to use as fare to his final destination.

According to the National Police Service, Mugambi had dutifully reported at the National Police Headquarters to do what she loves the most; front office duties.

"It surprised her that in the service to the public on this day, one of the visitors would be touched by her kindness and professionalism," the statement from the police read adding that at about 5.30am she got an opportunity to assist the stranded Waweru. 

Waweru had lost all his belongings in the vehicle he was travelling in and sought help at the police only to find more than he had hoped for when Corporal Mugambi offered him a phone to call home and cash to use as fare home.

While celebrating the cop, the National Police Service highlighted her qualifications as well as achievements in the force over the years. 

"Corporal Christine Mugambi has been working at the National Police Service Headquarters- Main Reception Desk deployed under the SGB Unit of the Administration Police Service," the police statement read.

The celebrated police has previously worked on secondment at the National Cohesion and Integration Commission where she was also in charge of customer service.

Academically, Mugambi holds a Diploma in Secretarial Studies from Kiambu Institute of Science and Technology (KSSI) and has demonstrated passion for front office duties with experience spanning about 8 years.

In the statement, the police thanked Waweru for the positive feedback and applauded Mugambi for discharging her mandate professionally and in a manner that brings honor to the Service.
