Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
In many parts of the world, police officers are revered and celebrated within their communities.
In Mzansi, that's not necessarily the case. Our country has a history of police brutality and currently, numerous cops have been caught accepting bribes, amongst other offences.
However, a kindhearted police sergeant has set the tone for benevolence, as the winter months approach under lockdown.
Sergeant Matome Rathupetsane recently celebrated his 40th birthday in unique fashion.
Instead of treating himself to a lavish gift, he decided to spend his resources to bless 80 deserving families with food parcels.
Rathupetsane donated 40 parcels to families in Alexandra and 40 families in Tzaneen.
Radio 702 reported on what inspired the good deed.
Rathupetsane said, "Because of COVID-19 I realized many people are hungry. I collected a list of forty people in Alexandra and I asked my friend to collect another forty people in my village in Tzaneen."
The news was also shared via Facebook by the Sekororo News group.

The kind act resonated with South Africans based on the strong response to the post.
Lydia Seja said,
"Oh yes challenge accepted, watch the space, may God bless you."
Hevydoll Heaven Mahlatse Maphaba added,
"Well done man. So inspiring."
Mogowe Sebela said,
"Good job Sergent."
It was reported that Springbok legend Bryan Habana recently distributed food parcels to impoverished communities in Cape Town.
The Rugby World Cup winner shared some inspirational messages and beautiful photos as he and his team assisted the families.
