Metro officer who helped change a woman's tyre gets all the love
A Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officer is getting all the love on social media as people applaud him for going beyond the call of duty. This after pictures emerged of the officer changing a woman's car tyre.
According to Truth and Justice's Facebook page, the incident was witnessed by Kushie Pieterson on the M1, next to Woodmead Retail Park, on Wednesday.
On Twitter, the pictures have gone viral and caught the attention of police chief David Tembe, who said the city's officers aim to serve and protect with pride. Some tweeps have also shared stories of their positive encounters with the Johannesburg's police officers.
Here are some of the reactions:
I’ve been helped by a cop before. My spare was flat too, they went to the nearest petrol station to inflate it while I waited at the police station. They came back and changed my tyre while cracking jokes to ease my frustration ❤️— TheFriendlyTweep (@manana_kunene_) October 2, 2019
Without taking the shine off JMPD, something similar also happened to my Mom and i in Durban on the N2 by Higginson... Two Metros stopped to helped us when we had a car issue. They even drove behind us until we were safely out of harm's way. So yes its a beauty 2see— Nosihle_sihle (@Nosihlesihle6) October 3, 2019
