Magoha called to rescue 14 year old boys lost in crime in Nairobi
A section of residents in Nairobi’s Mlango Kubwa area are appealing to the Ministry of Education to conduct a sensitization campaign to get back young boys and girls who dropped out of school after coronavirus pandemic back to school.
The residents claim that mothers in the area are losing their young sons to crime and other social vices.
Mary Atieno one of the residents say that young boys aged 14 and 15 years are getting shot by police officers after getting into crime deeply.
“Mlango Kubwa has become very dangerous, young boys are walking with weapons and are terrorising residents,” said Atieno.
“They are walking around with knives, some are even armed with pistols. We do not know what to do so we are requesting the Ministry of Education to please come in and do a sensitization campaign to get them back to school,” she stated.
On Sunday evening a 14 year old boy was shot dead by the police after he was caught stealing from a woman in Mlango Kubwa.
According to Atieno, they hope that if a sensitization programme is conducted the young boys will be saved from the lurking jaws of death.
