A viral video of Sports CS Ababu Namwamba getting his shoes cleand by an NYS officer has sparked mixed reactions among Kenyans.
The video was captured during the handover ceremony that was held at NYS on Monday, November 7, 2022.
A uniformed National Youth Service officer could be seen cleaning CS Namwamba’s shoes. The NYS officer has been identified as Dickson Loyerer.
The CS showed satisfaction with the uniformed officer's excellent show-shining abilities by placing his hands in his pockets while the NYS officer was squatting on the ground.
“And I hope Madam Director General allows a tip," Ababu said to NYS Director General Matilda Sakwa who was also present.
However, the NYS DG said that service was part of the discipline instilled during training and therefore the CS should not give a tip."No! No! We do not allow a tip.
It is part of their discipline," she said.
CS Namwamba was at the NYS headquarters in Nairobi, where he officially received the NYS docket, which was transferred from the Ministry of Public Service to the Ministry of Sports.
