The traffic Police Officer who braved the rains in Lusaka yesterday to direct and control traffic under heavy rains has been promoted to Sergeant.
Charity Nanyangwe was promoted by Commissioner of Police in Charge of Administration Lombe Kamukoshi this morning.
The promotion comes barely under 24 hours when social media frenzy demanded for the promotion of Ms Nanyangwe for her commitment to duty.
She was spotted without a raincoat controlling traffic yesterday when it was raining in the capital city.
This was after a traffic jam at the Ben Bella-Lumumba Roads junction following the non-function of traffic lights.
Ms Nanyangwe was able to control heavy traffic alone despite the heavy sudden rain, despite not having the required rain safety gear and a raincoat.
