Cabinet is considering coming up with a strong decision to completely have street children off the streets of Kampala and other other towns.

This has been revealed by the deputy director Uganda Media center Col Shaban Bantariza while briefing journalists about cabinet resolutions agreed upon by the executive officials yesterday.

He adds that these children are not only a problem to travelers on the streets but also have continuously given Uganda a bad image.

Bantariza meanwhile says home settlements shall be established for these children and others where possible be reunited with their families.
