- Kisii County Police Commander Francis Kooli has been warming many hearts with various life-changing initiatives.
- On Tuesday, he donated wheelchairs to needy persons, a month after visiting school girl caught studying while herding cows.
In efforts to rebuild the strained relationship between police officers and the citizens, the Kisii Police Commander has embarked on a new project to donate wheelchairs to needy persons.
On Tuesday, Commander Francis Kooli gave five wheelchairs to five persons in Kiogoro within Kisii Central Sub County.
“Led by the county police chief, the “peace angels” gifted wheelchairs to five beneficiaries at Kiogoro within Kisii Central Sub County. The smiles on the faces of the recipients tells the whole story. Blessed are the hands that giveth,” National Police Service lauded him.
Kooli launched the initiative earlier this month.
“My office has decided to help donate the chairs after the organisation which caters for the disabled interests helped to identify the needy cases,” he said at the time.
More than 11 people living with disabilities were identified as potential beneficiaries of the program from Kiogoro, Sameta, Ogembo and Kenyenya areas.
Kisii Police Boss in the spotlight
In yet another heart warming gesture, the Kisii police boss made a visit last month to a Grade Five girl’s home in Transmara West Sub County.
This was after a photo of her studying while herding cows went viral. According to the National Police Service, he was touched by the girl’s thirst for knowledge, and decided to support her academic journey.
Kooli’s administration has also been engaging in other community service projects such as donating sanitary towels in secondary schools. More than 800 students have benefitted so far.
Before his transfer to Kisii, Kooli had been serving in Siaya County in the same capacity. He replaced Patrick Macharia who was moved to Nakuru. Now he is already building a good name for the force in Kisii.
