- Early this month, KCCA rescued 259 children who were sent to Koblin Skilling Centre in Napak District for rehabilitation.
- Days later, however, the hotspots, including Jinja Road traffic lights and Wandegeya witnessed an influx of child beggars.
The police are holding four people in connection with child trafficking. The suspects are accused of forcing the trafficked children to beg on the streets of Kampala City.
By press time, the suspects, who spent Thursday night at Central Police Station, were awaiting arraignment in court.
In the same operation, 218 street children were taken off the streets and sent to a shelter in Masulita, Wakiso District.
