Despite Fresh Kid’s parents repeatedly coming out to deny receiving any money from government, Youth and children affairs Minister, Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi made a shocking revelation that the fancy standards of living Patrick Ssenyonjo aka Fresh Kid is enjoying are a result of her tireless efforts.
Nakiwala says despite the criticism she got while battling with Fresh Kid’s management and family to return him to school, she had to keep her head up because the cause was worth it.
“I am happy that the boy is at school,” Nakiwala said as she also revealed that next in line are the street children.
“Now our focus is on getting street children off the streets,” she said.
The minister disclosed that government has put in place different reception homes to accommodate them. She further said that the street children are going to be taken back to school, others will be engaged in sports through the federations that are under National Council of Sports.
She warned all those giving any kind of assistances to the street children that they will be arrested.
