A team cleaning the Ngong River in Embakasi South, Nairobi last evening recovered three bodies of infants.
This brings to 28 the number of bodies retrieved from rivers around the city by the Sonko Rescue Team (SRT) and the Comb Green Solutions groups cleaning the Ngong River and
Nairobi River respectively since Sonko launched the monthly cleanup exercise in July 2018.
The latest recovery was made in Korogocho area.
The 28 include 23 infants and five adults. Another body was last Thursday recovered from the same area.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko called on young mothers to seek help if they find raising babies an impossible challenge.
Sonko said there is always the option of giving up the babies to foster homes should push comes to shove.
