City Police holds engagement with Okahandja Park community


Hunger and a lack of parental care are said to have driven many children in Windhoek's Okahandja Informal Settlement to the streets.

But the end results aren't pleasing.

The City Police held an engagement with the community of Okahandja Park following the observation of too many children roaming around the streets.

Many of the children from Okahandja Park walk to the Grove Mall in Kleine Kuppe, Town Square in the CBD, and other areas.

There, according to the City Police, they snatch people's handbags and beg for food and money.
