    Ababu Namwamba’s shoe-cleaning video by an NYS officer outraged netizens.

    Published on

    Ababu Namwamba, Cabinet Secretary for Youth Affairs, Sports, and the Arts, received a variety of responses when a video surfaced showing a National Youth Service (NYS) officer polishing his shoes.

    On Monday, November 7th, the NYS officer was videotaped crouching with a piece of cloth in his hand, wiping the dirt off of Ababu’s shoes.

    The CS was also overheard pleading with NYS Director General Matilda Sakwa for permission to reward the officer with a gratuity for his helpful behavior.

    Matilda Sakwa declined the offer, citing that it was a part of their responsibilities.

    Ababu went on to thank the NYS officer after wiping his shoes.

    Some Kenyans, however, blasted the CS online, claiming that the action degraded the stature of NYS officers.
