Body Of Infant Has Been Retrieved At Nairobi River Korogocho Slums


Yet another body of an infant has been retrieved at Nairobi River  by Komb Green Solutions a youth group in Korogocho slums  cleaning the river, bringing the  total number of retrieved bodies to 17.

The body was fresh and was found floating on the river with umbilical cord still attached to it.

Komb Green Solutions chairman Fredrick Okinda  blamed the police for not taking necessary steps to bring perpetrators to book and that children who see bodies being retrieved are psychologically traumatised.

‘‘We have so many children playing at the renovated Korogocho People’s Park. Seeing the bodies being retrieved affects them psychologically ,” he said.

Meanwhile environment executive member Vesca Kangogo  has asked those who can not take care of their new-borns to stop giving birth.

‘‘We can not leave in this kind of society.. parents educate your children , it’s a matter that  has also attracted even foreign envoys. We have over 100 tourists who have so far toured our recreational parks,” Veska said.
