streetThe county government of Nairobi will this week start the operation of removing street children from CBD following massive complains of robbery  from members of the public.

Addressing the media today City Inspectorate operation officer Peter Mbaya says criminals in the CBD have also taken advantage of the situation by posing as ‘chokoras’ and robbing people.

The operation is expected to kick-off tomorrow night and those caught will be taken to rescue centres in Makadara and Kariokor.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has however raised questions over the removal of street children in CBD by the Nairobi county government which he says has not been bearing fruits.

In an interview with  Ghetto Radio News this morning Sakaja noted that the county  government do not have a good plan and rehabilitation program to benefit street children.

He wants the county government to  co-ordinate with national government and ensure enough funds are allocated for rehabilitation, schooling and other needs a move he say will ensure life of street children changes.

Meanwhile the county government maintains that the removal exercise will begin today as some street children have become  security threat to members of the public.
