Malawi police in the Northern region city of Mzuzu have conducted an exercise with the aim of removing street kids from the city’s streets.
Northern region police publicist Sub-Inspector Maurice Chapola said that there are a lot of street kids in the city and some of them are orphans while others are sent by their parents to beg in the streets.
“We have observed that with exposure, they easily indulge into criminal activities while others are defiled,” Chapola said.
He indicated that they have decided to conduct sensitization campaigns to civic educate parents.
Sub-Inspector Chipola also said they will arrest parents who encourage their children to beg in the streets.
