thanks.

So sad indeed. One step across the road. Thumps down on the other side.

The sleeping guy was a Westlands Chokora

Adm, that programme was short lived as it was not sufficiently funded. The street families are slowly increasing again.

Late last year, I attended a meeting and was dismayed to hear the City Council's Director for Social Services say that since the new constitution, the Council can no longer remove the street families from the streets...bla...bla.... He blamed it on some Rights NGOs that were teaching the families that everyone has a right to be on the streets and helping them sue the Council when they are evicted. We all agree that everyone has a right to be on the streets, etc, but is this the way?

Shelters are expensive to maintain especially with the numbers of street families ever increasing. I do not know what the solution will be but for now, we can expect the number to swell and crime rate may begin to rise. Some sustainable solution is urgently needed urgently.

its sad to see nairobi to be reduced back to having beggers on the street on the street again.. Well thats a pure lie about the constitution unless if they give notice of evictions then they can be removed.... The solution is take them off the street and put them in centers etc i wonder how the Europeans do it????

There are homeless people in Europe (although not on a large scale like in developing economies), some even die on the streets in winter. With that being said they have shelters and emergency numbers that homeless people dial to be directed to emergency shelters.
I do not know how operational such a system would be in Kenya, it could simply attract more poor rural people to the streets.
Some street families in Kenya actually have homes in the rural areas. Maybe they could be helped in relocating back to the village, and trained on some skill, eg agriculture, carpentry etc.

Okay..... I agree with you that they need to be retaught at least some skill

I wonder exactly when they will finish everything as it looks like they have slowed down a bit and the construction is not moving fast enough like it used to.

Are you by any chance trying to compare traffic density of Thika road to Waiyaki way?

Thika road is more dense but traffic jams never end on waiyaki, uhuru and mombasa road stretch because of those roundabouts
