Hadisi told Peace Forum Channel during an interview recently that Kawangware tops in the number of of people being infected with AIDS through drugs injection followed by Malindi and Mombasa in the whole country.``Something urgent has to be done or else we will loose many youths here due to consumption of drugs and spread of the deadly AIDS disease``,said Hadisi.

``My organisation is going to partner with other Non Governmental Organisation and see how we can assist youths in this area to abstain from using drugs and instead focus on activities which are beneficial to you and development oriented ones,`` said Madonnah as she addressed the youths.

Kawangware is one of the suburbs in Nairobi which has highest rate of criminal activities and hosts a big number of ladies who stay as single mothers and derive their livelihood on working as sex workers which still is illegal in Kenya.
