Street families preach peace ahead of elections

04 December 2012, 16:35 Wangui Joseph

Street families in Nakuru have vowed to preach peace amongst themselves and to the public during the electioneering period to avoid any violence.

“We street families hail from different ethnic groups but share one trait that we are all homeless. That unites us as one,” they said.

The families from various centres of the larger Nakuru County had assembled at Nakuru town on Tuesday to plan on how they will celebrate Christmas holiday.

They claimed that since they do not have families to celebrate the festive season with, it is upon them to take care of each other as a brother.

They pointed out that being on streets was not a choice but a misfortune.

“We hustle day-in and day-out to cater for our critical necessitates like food,” they lamented.

The group has planned to celebrate the D-day in style by sharing a meal all together since they have being neglected for long.

“We are collecting funds from each one of us to make this decision successful,” they said.

The families earn a living by collecting plastic and scrap metal pieces and selling them to dealers.
