 Nairobi MCAs Approve Eviction Street Families from CBD

The operation will see over 15,000 street families, beggars and those faking disabilities flushed out of the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD). According to the county lawmakers, the evictions of the aforementioned persons will restore sanity in the city. The MCAs said the affected street children would be taken to the KSh 126 million Ruai Street Children Rehabilitation Center, which the county government is putting up.
