Policewoman promoted for her dedication in a heavy downpour

A Gambian policewoman has been promoted after showing “diligence and dedication” by continuing to direct the traffic in heavy rain, Gambia’s police magazine reports.

In a photo that emerged at the weekend Corporal Kaddy Jarju can be seen doing her duties having waded through the middle of a huge puddle without any boots, and with her trousers rolled up to her knees.

She continued “to give signals to vehicles with unwavering passion”, the police magazine says.

Her efforts have now been recognised by the police chief, Alhagi Mamour Jobe, and she has been promoted to sergeant.
