The menace of child beggars has taken over on the streets of Accra. They have become a nuisance to motorists and road users of which drastic measures must be put in place to get them off our streets.
The Member of Parliament for the Ningo Prampram Constituency, Samuel Nartey George has disclosed that he had to get down from his car and whip a child beggar who spat on his car because he refused to give her money.
Sam George made this revelation on 'Good Morning Ghana' on Metro TV when he was giving his submission on the devastating effects of child beggars on the streets of Accra.
According to him, it is nauseating to get to an intersection and you are swamp by these young children begging for alms.
"I was coming from Kanda heading towards Dworwolu and this kid comes knocking on my window for alms. I told this kid to go back. When the traffic light went green, the child spat on my car because I refused her money.
I went and packed my car at the roadside and took the whip in my car and walked back to where she was begging and gave her a nice lash at the buttocks." - he said
He added that the state and social protection must step in and take action to protect these children on the streets.
