PHOTOS – Mike Sonko Takes Up Traffic Police Role, Urges Kenyans To Donate Water To Officers

February 3, 2014

On Friday, Nairobi senator Mike Sonko took up the role of a traffic police, in what he termed an investigative tour. Wearing a reflective police jacket, Sonko observed and participated in controlling traffic in busy city roads.
After his ‘tour’, the senator became familiar with the problems the officers face, among them lack of toilets and clean drinking water. He pleaded with Kenyans to give the officers water bottles once in a while.
This was his post on Facebook.
In these photos I’m not posting as another Waiganjo or an imposter but I’m discharging my constitutional duties on oversight over all state officers whereby I managed to do an investigate tour and feature on the flow of traffic on our busy¬†major roads leading to our estates, roundabouts and all the major highways in the city. Do you know some police officers are not corrupt especially those controlling the flow of city traffic on our roads? We must come up with a system that will guarantee the supply of mobile/ portable toilets, provision of heavy jackets to officers who are on the roads as early as 4am, provision of clean drinking mineral water and other essential needs to officers controlling traffick during sunny hours. I therefore urge all motorists to kindly cooperate in assisting our officers to ensure easy flow of traffick in our county. Carry even two bottles of clean mineral water from your house and donate to our officers controlling the city traffic. When your instructed to stop so that you pave way for another lane to flow, just obey and don’t hoot at these innocent officers as they undergo through hell from what I experienced. If you have an emergency and may be your stopped or stuck in the jam, just alight from your car and plead with them politely and they will understand and assist you accordingly.
