While licensed firearm holders swung into action to assist police units combating suspected Al-Shabaab militants at 14 Riverside complex on Tuesday, one elderly woman also saw a unique opportunity to lend a hand.

The unidentified woman, instead of joining the huge crowd that had milled in the area, instead prepared tea and buns for the officers at the scene.

A befitting breakfast for our men and women in uniform who had braved long hours in a successful push to neutralize the gunmen who stormed the premises on Tuesday at around 3 pm.

Photos of the woman, in her show of kindness and service to the nation, have moved hearts and have been shared widely with many commending her work.

A rose in an otherwise dark day.

Here are some off the reactions...
