In other news about law enforcement, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a kind police officer who hosted a special birthday party for the baby he rescued. Many people have the notion that most police officers can only help when there is a bribe, but that is not the case with Gabriel Akwaru.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Akwaru, who is stationed at Manjiri Police Post in Togoni, has been a blessing to a baby who was dumped in a pit latrine on September 9, 2019, and her family.
A year after rescuing the baby, the kind cop decided to commemorate the day with a special birthday party for the little missy. Speaking to Briefly.co.za's sister publication TUKO.co.ke, Akwaru said the party went down on Sunday, September 13, since he was tied up on Wednesday, September 9.
