One of the pictures, that could be termed a highlight of the event, also stumped the internet and is believed to be of Jokisch’s son who also helped the volunteers in the drive, wearing gloves, holding a broom and wearing a face mask.
The German diplomat’s participation in matters of public importance is reminiscent of former German Ambassador Martin Kobler’s tenure, who kept the Pakistani public engaged through his activities, ranging from dining at a roadside eatery to diverting the attention of authorities to burning issues of the day.
Martin Kobler retired from his position last month, with Pakistanis calling upon authorities to place his name on the ‘Exit Control List’ to keep him in the country, out of respect and honour.
It seems that Kobler’s replacement is following his footsteps, winning the hearts of the Pakistani public.
