Street families in Eastleigh were on the morning of Wednesday rounded up by Nairobi County askaris.

Those nabbed in the operation were taken to a waiting vehicle belonging to Nairobi County.

Eye witnesses who talked to NEP Journal account of a situation where by those unwilling were chased and taken by force.

It is not still clear whether the County government intends to take them to rehabilitation centers. Street children have of late increased in Nairobi’s Eastleigh owing to the population of Somalis that are generous in giving out.
