Antony, 14 years old, Rueben School: "It's important to go to school to achieve my future goal, and learn knowledge for my life. People do drop out, and others die if they are involved in crime or if they get sick. I know a boy who went to steal and was lynched, he was about 15 years old. Kids round here steal because they don't have parents, and so they have to steal to feed themselves.
Nairobi is very different from Mukuru. In Nairobi they have nice houses with concrete, but here it is iron sheets, it's not good. The government should try and help the children here by building concrete houses, so that when there are fires, children don't get burned. After the boy I know who was lynched was killed, his friends burnt the house down of the man who did it as revenge. If I was president, I would impose security so that people do not steal and are safe."
