How should we treat beggars?
They say they have already removed at least 3,000 beggars in the last year but have now upped the commitment and banned giving alms to beggars as well. Violators will face two year imprisonment without the option of paying a fine. Do you give to beggars?
Senegal attempted a similar project last year but the number of beggars on the streets of Dakar remains high. Is this really the best way to deal with beggars? What else should be done?
