A police officer who resides in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado County has offered to support orphans on his birthday instead of partying.
The cop Sammy Ondimu Ngare who is also a singer has become a darling to many for his humanitarian gestures which he documents on social media. This time round he will be receiving uniform and school fees for his MaxFactor Rescue Centre on Gataka road. He rescues children orphaned by HIV and those living with HIV.
Speaking on phone to this writer the cop said in the past two months he has rescued five children and is appealing for donations such as uniforms and school fees for those who will be joining secondary school this year.
The 39-year-old who is commonly known as Askari Binadamu was transferred from Nairobi County recently to a camp near Kenya Ethiopia border; he says he will still continue serving humanity from wherever he is.
On June 2017 the officer rallied Kenyans to raise Sh120, 000 for a 17-year-old girl who had been abandoned in Rongai’s Fatima hospital after giving birth.
In the recent past police in Rongai Police station have been criticized by the public for allegedly acting nonprofessionally , This week a High Court in Kajiado ordered six police officers from the station to pay a total of Sh 7.8 million to a lawyer and 19 people who were arrested and detained illegally in the station on 2016.
A police woman from the same station who owns a café in the town was also accused of allegedly arresting her employee for demanding her salary of two months.
In connection with the incident, Ondimu urged his fellow cops to stop breaking the law when they should be law enforcers. He said everyone will take his/her own cross if convicted.
The cop has been in the forefront in urging police to treat people the way they would like to be treated and the public to also do the same.
