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.
