Very Sad, yet people still continue stealing Government money and the poor are becoming poorer day by day. Investigate why such young kids escaped from Chisomo children’s Home. Interrogate management of this Chisomo Home. Take the kids to another safe home and not Mpemba Boys home as doing so will only make them future hardcore criminals.
