Homeless of Nairobi released this statement on Facebook.

“On Thursday night, the boys at our home in Gachie, seeing a long weekend ahead, decided to go on a walkabout. They usually go to places such as Electric Avenue in Westlands where all the nightclubs rage throughout the nights. They wait outside and hope to make money from drunk partygoers. Old habits die hard, as they say. They tend to make a lot of money on some occasions as revelers, often in a good mood, part with cash. One time, one of the boys made seven thousand shillings in a night!

The fact that people give these kids money is detrimental in the long term. It keeps them on the streets longer. They buy drugs and glue with this money. We, as a society, must really think before giving a monetary hand out to these kids. Sometimes you feel guilty and want to give them money but we really hope you see that it’s perpetuating a dangerous lifestyle. If the boys don’t have things such as these to look forward to, they have no reason to run away from our homes.”

They however later confirmed that Morris and the other boys are now back to the home.
