A children’s home in Nairobi’s Kayole area has been shut down by authorities over an alleged physical and psychological abuse on children.
Wycliffe Anami a children’s officer in Kayole says they were alerted about the abuse that the children at the Children from Christian Christ Ambassador Children’s home were going through.
Amani told Ghetto Radio News that one of the children had been abandoned at the home’s fence and has been spending the night there.
Amani says the children in the home had bruises in their bodies, were eating stale food and living in a home without proper protection.
The owner of the children’s home is currently under police custody.
The other children have been transferred to other children’s homes within the area.
