NYS officer Dickson Loyerer promoted to corporal

Days after a video of National Youth Service (NYS) officer Dickson Loyerer cleaning Sports CS Ababu Namwamba's muddy shoes went viral, Loyerer has finally got employment.

An update from NYS official Twitter indicates that Loyerer has been   promoted to Corporal.

"When Princess Diana said “Carry out a random act of kindness,with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you"seemed to have had Dickson Loyerer in mind.

Through his act of kindness to@AbabuNamwambahe has been promoted to CPL," the update read. 

Ababu invited the young man to his office after the video went viral. It was not clear whether the move was genuine or whether it was an act of damage control.

 "Dickson Loyerer yesterday graciously volunteered to clean my muddy shoes after a tree planting session at @NYS_Ke HQ where he works. Today we shared a cup of tea in my office, where he gave me NYS tips on grooming, discipline and skills. I have requested Loyerer to join my staff."

Taking to Twitter to share photos of himself pouring a cup of tea for Dickson in his office the CS captioned it, "Dickson Loyerer yesterday graciously volunteered to clean my muddy shoes after a tree planting session at NYS HQ where he works.

Today we share a cup of tea in my office, where he gave me NYS tips on grooming, discipline, and skills."

CS Namwamba went on to add that due to the exemplary discipline that Dickson had displayed he was looking forward to working with him in his office. 

"I have requested Loyerer to join my staff," announced the newly appointed CS.

The act occurred during the handover of NYS from the Ministry of Youth Affairs, Sports and arts to the Ministry of Public Service ceremony.

As the CS was making his address, NYS Private Dickson Loyerer was seen wiping the CS's shoes, and when the CS attempted to stop him, he was told that it was part of the discipline that they are being taken through in their coursework.
