Nairobi County Flushes Beggars Out of CBD

The crackdown comes hours after Nairobi County Executive Committee Member for Education, Youth and Gender Janet Ouko acknowledged that the city has recently experienced an influx in number of beggars. More than 30 beggars were netted in the operation and taken to Waithaka Rehabilitation Center in Dagoretti, while those from neighbouring countries like Tanzania will be deported.
