The Malawi Government has hit back at critics of its decision to arrest parents of street kids in the country.
The exercise was expected to start next month but did not go well with some civil society organisations who suggested that government should stop the process.
The organisations are lobbying that government should provide a tangible solution to the matter rather than arresting the beggars since poverty forces them to stay in the streets.
However, principal secretary in the ministry of gender, children and social welfare, Mary Shawa, says government will not reverse its decision since it is following the Child Care Protection and Justice Act.
