Street beggars get backing

59

The Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) has asked government to reconsider its decision to arrest beggars in the country.

CHRR communications officer Fletcher Simwaka said that government should have assessed the families of the street beggars and provided them with support as most street beggars are on the streets because of high levels of poverty in the country.

Street beggars cause rows.

He added that his organisation is against government’s decision as the directive has come at a time when there is hunger in the country. He then called on government to think about people’s living standards.

However, government insists that it will still arrest beggars and everyone who give money to them.

Principal secretary in the ministry of gender, disability, children and social welfare Mary Shawa said the law states that there should be no beggars on the streets Malawi.

“By arresting street beggars we are following what the law is saying and people must not give money to beggars, if found they will be arrested,” said Shawa.

She added that some of the beggars were trained and given money to sustain themselves but they sold the things and went back to the streets.

According to Shawa, statistics show that out of 4400 street beggars on the streets, 4000 hail from good homes which means 400 are the ones who need support.

  2. Arresting beggars will be the total stupidity of the…at its highest level.Evil.even in the bible beggars were there looking for help.you are not forced to give…we give because we know that God doesn’t have visible hands to give to those in-needy…he uses our hands to reach out to poor.the bible says he who have 2shirts,and u c sm1 is naked,give one to him.we also give to the poor because we know that blessed is the hand that gives than the one that taketh…so,if you don’t have the word ‘giving to the poor’ in your word vocabulary,dont make everyone emulate your greedy and selfishness .dont arrest beggars they never chose to be poor.

  16. Honestly most of the people begging are fit to do something better than that. The problem is that we just oppose everything. Some of the kids look much better than I was when I was at their age but to worked hard. After all most of these kids turn to robbers at night. Send all of them back to school. For the disabled and elderly they must be supported to do their things.
