Uproar over high number of children hawkers in CBD
Nairobi County government is now on the spot over invasion of the Central Business District by under age children who are engaging in the hawking of sweets.
Nairobi City County Inspectorate and social services department says it has not been easy containing the children at rehabilitation centers and special schools.
According to head of Inspectorate Tito Kilonzi they have arresting them but few days they are back again on street a move that can only be explained by rehabilitation center officers.
‘‘We arrest these children daily, our duties ends at arresting them but its also shocking that there are those who still sneak from rehabilitation centers,’’ Kilonzo said.
Current statistics shows that Nairobi county government holds 306 children.
Recent attempts by the county to remove the beggars from CBD has also failed with those doing business by the disables still thriving in the city.
