Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Sleeping Police

The security of any individual partly relies wit the police of his country. In Kibera the police never come in handy and is always the last sort resort incase of crime Well, perhaps this is a high time the government consider doing some reforms in the police department. In a place of two days, three people lost their lives in Laini Saba during raid by armed robbers. The police have never made arrests and there is no hope that they intend to do that any time son, its really disappointing to see this happen.
