Last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that Kenya will be having a curfew as from Friday 7 pm to 5 am.

On the first day of the curfew, many Kenyans were caught on the wrong side of the law. Police officers clobbered some which resulted in a wide outcry for the better part of Saturday in social media over police brutality.

However, not all police officers were condemned over brutality, Baringo AP commandant Ibrahim Abachilla gently approached, sanitized and asked Kenyans caught outside in the curfew time not to be outside again after 7 pm.

In Nairobi’s Utawala area, during the rush after the curfew began, a woman with a child and some luggage alighted and began running forcing her to leave some of her luggage. Police were chasing people to go their homes.

On spotting the woman, police constable at Embakasi police station Amina Mutio ran towards her and calmed her down. Mutio then picked the luggage that she had left and safely directed the lady and her child to safety.

Amina Mutio who comes from Nguluni Machakos County in an exclusive interview on Phone with Mauvoo News said that she has always wanted to spread love to the public for years and change the thinking that police officers are inhuman and brutal.

Mutio reminded Kenyans to keep safe,wash their hands, minimize their movement and follow the Government directives including the daily 7pm to 5 am curfew so as to prevent the spread of the killer disease.

Her actions warmed the hearts of Many Kenyans who showered her with praises. Here is what some had to say.

Lawyer Cliff Ombeta said, “This good soul is Amina Mutio. We must applaud her. While her fellow officers clobbered people senseless, she took the higher road. She assisted. She helped. Retweet ifikie wadosi. Amina you are a real officer, a good person.”

Jotham Munene a pastor at CITAM said, “It’s time we celebrated a hero, Madam Amina Mutio from Embakasi police station – Share widely – Yesterday, as curfew started. What an example.”

Dr. Fredrick Mukabi said, “I celebrate this officer. At the darkest moment in the Kenyan police force, she stood out as a shining star and a ray of hope for Kenyans to get a humane force amidst us. Thank you and thank you Amina Mutio.”
