Johannesburg — Pictures of a policeman standing on the edge of a submerged bridge helping traffic to flow again at Sultan Hamud have sparked a fountain of praise.
He stood at the edge with his feet underwater showing motorists where to cross safely.
According to KenyaDigest.com, floodwater blocked the Sultan Hamud bridge along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway, leaving motorists stranded.
Officers chose to be the road-edge markers to ease traffic build-up when the rain subsided.
Traffic was backed up on both sides of the road, and motorists were urged to use alternative routes.
Here's what Twitter users had to say:
We need more people like you. People who are out to serve. May God bless you and lift you

Is this volunteer or charity work because even if it was me in Kenya police uniform and a traffic cop I would even swim if that is what it takes to do my duty
