To many people, the thought of police is not necessarily a positive one. But the force has a few great individuals who go above and beyond the line of duty.

They help, protect, advise and mentor without expecting anything in return. If that is not kindness, then tell us what is.

An unnamed police officer has warmed his way into people’s hearts after he was seen helping a trader push his handcart in a busy highway.

The water vendor was pushing a cart that was probably three or four times his weight and the burden became a little too much to bear.

A kind cop who was in the vicinity rushed to the trader’s rescue and put his muscles to work as soon as possible. A bunch of cars were parked bumper-to-bumper as the traffic snarl-up ate its way through the road.

Motorists watched in amazement as one driver decided to take photos of the cop’s act of kindness. When the photos were posted on Twitter by user Ma3Route, Kenyans were proud of the sight that met their eyes.

They celebrated the kind officer for being his brother’s keeper and saluted the pure-hearted man in uniform.
