Chaos as vendors scramble for food and clothes.
Chaos has today erupted along Kikuubo lane as energetic traders and other members of the public scrambled to grab clothes and food that a street preacher brought to donate to street children.
David Kaita of Spirit Awakening Ministries says as a street a preacher, he wanted to share this year’s Christmas with the needy and people who are less privileged. He was shocked to discover that the people who the kids were targeting for food donations would in turn target him for the donations he was taking to the same kids.
Many people resorted to grabbing the clothes from the preacher’s assistants, and this made it quite difficult for the organizers to distribute the clothes fairly to the intended beneficiaries of whom mothers and children were the priority.
Kaita adds that they have otherwise distributed clothes to over 200 people in Kampala including street children and other less privileged groups.
