Gangs in Huruma

Vision Youth Group

 

This is a story of one of our fallen friend who was killed by thugs a few days ago. Many youths in our area have turned to mugging people with knives and ending with killing them due to lack of jobs and education. So we, as the youth of Huruma, came together and decided that we form security group whereby we go for operations, that is we search for thugs.

We established a youth group called VISION YOUTH GROUP, situated in Huruma, Madoya village, which aim is to rehabilitate the thugs. We have seen some massive change. Some of our members were thugs themselves and now they have gotten used to the activities that the group runs, that is garbage collection, security, carwash, water vending, rabbit rearing, urban farming, poultry keeping and also acrobatics.

Our future plans is to get the upcoming youths, who engage in drug abuse which are often leading them to killing their neigbours, brothers and other family members, involved in the groups activities. As a group we face financial problems and lack of help from the police to get the thugs which carry small arms off the streets. Our group – Vision Youth Group – has made a great achievement in enabeling the residents to live peacefully without fear of being mugged. We also wish to tell our visitors not to be scared when coming to Huruma because we will provide you with security.
