Daily Mail - 1 September 2013
Pilot abused his position at British Airways to molest hundreds of girls at African orphanages while claiming he was doing charity work




British Airways pilot used his position to abuse hundreds of vulnerable children in African schools and orphanages, the Daily Mail can reveal.

First Officer Simon Wood, 54, claimed he was carrying out charity work for the airline while molesting scores of young girls during his stopovers in Africa.


Dressed in a bogus captain’s uniform, he would use the airline’s good name – and even BA branded toys and colouring books – to lure children out on day trips and to five-star hotels used by the airline, where he would abuse them.

British Airways is now facing a hugely damaging lawsuit brought by his victims, who say the company failed to protect them from his horrific abuse.

After abusing children for 15 years, the £100,000-a-year pilot was finally stopped when he was charged with separate child sex offences in the UK.

Days after appearing in a court in London last month charged with the offences, Wood threw himself under a train.


Prosecutor Peter Zinner said: ‘The prosecution say that Mr Wood was a deeply depraved and corrupt individual who had used his ability to fly to other parts of the world to commit sexual offences against children.’

Officials in Kenya have identified at least 15 children, all believed to be girls aged five to 11, that Wood abused – and say they fear there are hundreds more.

As British Airways launched an international investigation into the ‘shocking’ claims, questions were asked over why the pilot – who was arrested after indecently assaulting an eight-year-old girl in 2000 – was ever allowed to work near children.'

Prosecution sources said they feared the pilot could prove to have been among Britain’s most prolific sex offenders.

During his 16-year career with British Airways, Wood chose unpopular routes in and out of East Africa, using his stays there to prey on vulnerable children in the slums.

His first known contact with children in Africa came in 2001 when he began visiting an orphanage in the Karen area of Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.

At Easter 2002, he was among 20 crew members from two BA flights who volunteered to spend the holiday period with the Kenyan youngsters, showering the orphanage with presents, medicines and donations raised at home.

He told the UK news agency the Press Association, which covered the trip: ‘We play, sing, organise activities and generally entertain them. We become very close to the children.’

In fact Wood was using the prestige of his pilot’s uniform to gain access to children for the purposes of abusing them.

Much of the most recent abuse happened during stopovers in Uganda, his normal flying destination, from where he would cross the border to Kenya to target slum children and orphans.

Officials in Kenya say, he claimed he was a member of ‘BA’s community relations programme’ when approaching orphanages and schools.

If managers complained about his behaviour, Wood made official complaints to the police that the staff involved were stealing from the children’s homes, and at least two managers were arrested over his allegations.

Wood first came to the attention of police when he was accused of an indecent assault on an eight-year-old girl. He met the girl while volunteering for Diabetes UK, escorting young children on a trip to North Yorkshire in 2000.

Wood was arrested over the sex attack, but – in an echo of the Jimmy Savile scandal – the Crown Prosecution Service ruled there was insufficient evidence to charge him. He was allowed to keep his job at BA and, in an indictment of the vetting system, continued his charity work with children.


The mother of one young victim told the Mail her daughter was abused at a five-star hotel used by BA crew in Nairobi.

She said that after loaning her money Wood duped her into letting him take the five-year-old girl to the Nairobi Intercontinental.

‘I trusted him completely because he seemed so good and so kind. I trusted him with everything, even with my daughter,’ she said.

The girl, now 14, is struggling at school and has become tearful and withdrawn. She has threatened suicide to escape the shame and misery Wood inflicted.

When suspicions arose about Wood in Kenya, one local school contacted a British law firm, whose staff travelled to Kenya with a view to beginning legal action against both Wood and British Airways.

But when they realised the extent of Wood’s sexual offences against the children they passed the matter onto British police.

Following a tip-off, UK officers re-arrested him on July 18 in the BA staff car park at Heathrow over the 2000 assault.

When they searched his laptops, they found explicit images of African youngsters. During a police search of Wood’s car several school uniforms were found, Westminster Magistrates’ Court was told.


Prosecutor Mr Zinner said: ‘His computer was seized and evidence was obtained to show that he had visited various paedophile websites.’

Wood appeared at the court on August 16 charged with possessing indecent images and indecently assaulting an eight-year-old schoolgirl.

He was granted bail on the condition he surrender his passport but two days later he threw himself under a train near his home in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.


Prosecutors announced last Wednesday that as a result of his death, they were halting the case.

Jennifer Swiddon, representing Wood, said that her client intended to deny all offences against him prior to his death.

It was revealed in court that police suspected Wood had abused more than 100 African children. A well-placed legal source said it was now feared that Wood had targeted hundreds of girls during his BA career.

Before his death, Wood had transferred £64,000 to his legal representatives in Africa.

Detectives suspect he was planning to use it as ‘hush money’ to buy off his victims or to open an orphanage in Uganda where more youngsters could be targeted.

The families of Wood’s brothers Nicholas, 52, and Anthony, 51, said it was ‘a difficult time for the whole family’ and declined to comment.

Glenn Algar – Potters Bar
Detective jailed for sex grooming

A highly-decorated Flying Squad detective has been jailed for 18 months for trying to groom a schoolgirl for sex over the internet.

Det Con Glenn Algar, 45, from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, thought he was sending e-mails to the girl.

But he was sending the lurid messages to a colleague working under cover.

Algar had also admitted possessing child pornography. The Southwark Crown Court judge ordered him to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

Algar is now banned him from working with children for life.

The married father-of-two resigned before appearing in court on Thursday.

He had pleaded guilty to internet grooming offences and six counts of making and possessing indecent images, at a hearing in January.

Algar had been based in Finchley, north London.

“This is a highly decorated police officer who, after 26 years of service to the public, had found himself repeatedly commended by his senior officers,” prosecutor Peter Zinner told the court on Thursday.

Judge Christopher Hardy told Algar the images found in his possession justified a prison term.

EXCLUSIVE: OFFICER HUNTING PAEDO COPS WAS WEB PERVERT

A TOP cop groomed a girl of 12 for sex while working undercover to catch paedophiles in the police.

Flying Squad Detective Constable Glen Algar, 44, also downloaded and made 168 porn pictures of children.


He spent five months grooming a schoolgirl called Lucy in an internet chatroom and sent her indecent films and text messages.

But it was a trap set by suspicious colleagues and she was actually another police officer.

Algar, married with two children, yesterday admitted 17 charges of online abuse including inciting a child to have sex. He had 25 years police service including rooting out bent officers.

He had been hand-picked for a top secret squad to uncover suspected paedophiles in the police, Southwark crown court in South London heard.

A former colleague said: "It is a sad case of a good cop turned bad. We don't know if his work trying to unmask paedophiles in the police turned his mind, or whether he had those secret tendencies going back years.

"On the surface he gave all the appearances of a happy family man with healthy interests."

Algar, of Potters Bar, Herts, who has been in custody for his own safety since November, will be sentenced in March.

Friends.. has been able to assist the women of Ray of Hope by bringing their craft goods to the UK. We are only able to do this because of our very good friend Simon Wood who is a pilot with BA and who visits Kampala monthly. We provide Simon with clothes to take out to the project and he returns with the bags full of craft goods. Simon is based in north London and so we have to meet half way to make the exchange – two cars with boots open and the swapping of cases must look like very suspicious behaviour!

Daily Mail - 2 September 2013
Did paedophile BA pilot have an accomplice at the airline? Victims claim a network of associates helped predator cover up his crimes

Victims of a paedophile British Airways pilot claim that a colleague at the airline helped him to abuse vulnerable children in at least three countries in Africa.

They say Simon Wood was helped and protected by a network of associates, including a male airline colleague, another British man and a female manager at one of Nairobi’s orphanages.

The trio are not believed to have been directly involved in sexual abuse against children, but lawyers are probing claims they helped the 54-year-old, who killed himself last month, to access his victims and to cover up his crimes.

Up to 50 alleged victims of First Officer Wood are now considering legal action against BA over the paedophile pilot’s crimes, details of which were revealed in yesterday’s Daily Mail.

They say they were molested by the £100,000-a-year pilot during his stopovers and charity work in Kenya.

It is feared Wood – now suspected of abusing hundreds of orphans and slum children in Kenya – also targeted youngsters in Uganda and Tanzania.

The suggestion that Wood was aided by a colleague will be of enormous concern to BA.

Martyn Day, a partner at UK law firm Leigh Day, said it was in contact with 40 to 50 families who believed their young daughters were molested by Wood.

Twelve have so far given interviews to lawyers about their ordeal and some have named a second British Airways employee and another British man.

Mr Day said his firm was working with British police to investigate the claims, and was considering launching legal action on their behalf against Wood’s estate and BA.

He said: ‘One man we are looking at is a British Airways staff employee and there’s another who is British but not a BA employee.

‘There are allegations they were involved in some way in facilitating Wood’s activities, but not in the abuse itself.

‘There is a big question about British Airways and the extent to which they had a vicarious responsibility.’


Scotland Yard declined to comment on claims a second BA employee helped Wood.

Officials at the Tulia Kidzone orphanage in Nairobi say one of their managers was dismissed in January this year after she was found to have allowed Wood access to vulnerable children.

In return, it is claimed the BA pilot bought her a car, helped her to get a mortgage and enrolled her own child in a charity ‘sponsorship’ programme.

Accountants were called into the orphanage earlier this year and were said to have uncovered a ‘myriad of financial issues’ in Wood’s handling of charitable donations to the centre.

Managers said it was still unclear whether Wood used his own money to pay off his network of associates.

They contacted Leigh Day earlier this year to beg them to investigate, after official complaints about Wood in Kenya appeared to have stalled.

Wood, who claimed he was carrying out charity work for BA, was stopped only after he was charged over separate child sex offences in the UK last month.

The pilot threw himself under a train near his home in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, last month, just days after appearing in a court in London accused of the offences.

Wood first came to the attention of British police when he was accused of an indecent assault on an eight-year-old girl. He met her while volunteering for Diabetes UK at a summer camp in North Yorkshire in 2000.

Wood was investigated over the sex attack the following year, but the Crown Prosecution Service ruled there was insufficient evidence to charge him. He then stepped up his charity work overseas.

Wangui Mbatia, from the children’s rights group Organising For Kenya, revealed someone had sent an anonymous note to BA earlier this year, telling them Wood had molested children in Kenya.

Three BA officials visited a children’s centre in July to discuss the claims. ‘They wanted us to understand that BA wasn’t involved,’ she said.

‘BA came to tell us they had nothing to do with it but we think they had everything to do with it. Now BA are missing in action.

‘We told them a pilot had gone bad and they told us to be quiet. They should be here to help us.’
BA insists it has never tried to cover up the scandal.


Asked about claims a second BA employee might have helped Wood, the airline said last night: ‘We continue to give the Met our fullest cooperation on this investigation.’

In a statement, the CPS said there was originally ‘insufficient evidence’ to charge Wood over the sex attack in North Yorkshire.

But new evidence prompted them to authorise police to charge him over the allegation and child porn offences last month.

A Diabetes UK spokesman said they were continuing to support police inquiries, adding: ‘Our thoughts are with all those affected and we have offered our support to the family of the complainant.’

Wood’s mother Christine, 77, refused to comment at her home in Cumbria yesterday.

He went most often to Nairobi. Looks like he went to Vietnam, too.

KIDZONE
The Orphanage and the Schools Programme

The Kidzone Project in Nairobi includes an Orphanage for 20 girls within a school, and a Schools Programme. Sponsors in the UK pay for the education of these orphans and for others living in the slums. They now have 80 children, including those in the home, in full time education. Some go to day schools, the poorest go to boarding schools, as their homes are too deprived for them to benefit from day school.

At the end of March, Simon Wood, the UK fundraiser and BA pilot, and Eli Njeri, a Kenyan volunteer on the project, gave two presentations in Sedbergh. One to Settlebeck students and one to supporters.

They showed pictures of children living in the Nairobi slums. This is where the orphans in the Kidzone home come from, and the children in the Schools Programme who of course still live there. They spoke of a girl called XXXXX in the Schools Programme who was once turned away from a Sunday Club for bad behaviour. Now 14 and at boarding school she recently gained the highest marks in all Kenya for her end of year exams.

They spoke of the problems at the start of getting money for the home, which is at last properly funded with a full time Manager and Assistant as well as a Housemother. Without British Airways’ help both with fundraising and donations it could not have survived.

We always hear the bad things about British Airways but few know that through their staff they support 104 charitable projects worldwide. They employ a Community Relations Staff of 12 and set aside a budget of £2 million each year for this purpose, as well as carrying goods free of charge for their charities.

Simon and Eli were delighted with the support they received from Sedbergh. They left with £200 in donations, a new sponsor for a child’s education, and a pledge of support from Settlebeck High School who will make a collection and correspond with some of the children.

Those who read about Kidzone in the February edition of Lookaround may recall the story of Grandma Muliko’s hungry children who had not eaten since their school dinner the previous day. I am pleased to say that these children now all have sponsors and are getting a good education and good food at a boarding school in the country. They and their Grandma seem to me to sum up the whole tragedy of the AIDS pandemic.

Grandma Muliko

Grandma Muliko, where are your daughters?
My two lovely daughters have both died of AIDS.

Grandma Muliko, where are their children?
These are their children, eight lovely children.

Who will look after them, Grandma Muliko?
I must look after them, but I’m so poor.

How will you feed them, Grandma Muliko?
I do not know, I’ve no money to feed them.

When did you feed them, Grandma Muliko?
They ate a school dinner just yesterday.

But there’s no school today, Grandma Muliko?
Today they go hungry, these eight lovely children.

Grandma Muliko, why are you crying?
I’m afraid they are dying, dying of hunger.

If we find them a boarding school, Grandma Muliko, can you then feed them just when they’re home?
Yes, I can feed them just when they’re home.

But how many Grandma Mulikos are crying?
Because all their children are hungry, are dying?

Losing faith in charity

By Maore Ithula

Only about 3,000 of the more than 13,000 charitable organisations in Kenya face any kind of regulation. And even that is very weak. How can we be sure that the money we give to charity is spent on the needy?

Fake charities have been part of Kenya's landscape for many years. They were most visible two years ago when a feeding frenzy in Aids spending led to millions of shillings being lost. The National Aids Control Council, the body that coordinates the government's anti-Aids campaign, reported that they had financed four groups that turned out to be fraudulent. The four lost their financing and ten others were investigated. The government also suspended several dozen Aids charities for "not properly documenting their spending".

The debacle put a spotlight on the inability of the oversight bodies to keep an eye on the activities of charities in Kenya. There are at least 3,100 registered non-governmental organisations in Kenya, more than ten times the number in 1995. They handle more than Sh70 billion, raised from local and foreign donors, every year. A further 10,000 or so charitable organisations are registered at the Attorney General's Chambers under the Societies Act. These are not subject to the NGO council code of ethics and operate with little regulation.

Many play a crucial role in providing social and economic welfare services that the government cannot deliver. However, with oversight bodies unable to even verify the legitimacy of many of them, is there any way to monitor how efficient they are? Could waste rival fraud as the single largest obstacle to charity in Kenya? And if it did, is there any way to know?

The NGO Coordination Bureau -- a parastatal under the Office of the Vice President -- is charged with registering, monitoring and regulating the finance management of such organisations. However, the bureau operates under recommendations from the National Council of NGOs, a self-regulating body for the organisations.

Reports available from the Bureau indicate that the African Medical and Research Foundation (Amref) and Oxfam GB top the list of NGOs in Kenya with each controlling more than Sh1 billion every year. ActionAid (K) and Care International are ranked next, with each handling over Sh500 million every year. Credible organisations like these have little trouble convincing individual and corporate donors in Kenya or abroad to make donations to their charitable efforts. At the lower end of the scale, however, are less well-known bodies - children's homes, charitable trusts, disease-specific funds etc - whose approach to raising and spending funds is a lot less transparent.

There are also many societies that occasionally raise funds through various activities like walks, go-kart races, concerts, competitions and the like but are rarely accountable for them.

Only two months ago, the Nairobi Street Children Rehabilitation Centre in Kayole was caught in a nasty public row with one of its benefactors. The scandal involved the home's 22 children allegedly going hungry and suffering all manner of skin diseases for lack of proper care. This was despite sufficient donations from local and foreign benefactors.

Simon Wood, a British Airways pilot who was the main fundraiser for the centre told The Standard that he was convinced money donated to the project was being misused.

"I am certain that my efforts are in vain because the funds are going to line personal pockets instead of benefiting the poor children," he said.

The centre, which was also called Mama Lucy's Home, was run by its founder, Lucy Ndemo. Amazingly, she took it all as a simple business disagreement.

"I have been in this business for 14 years," she said when the allegations surfaced, "and these wazungu want to snatch it from me maliciously."

The scandal led to key donors withdrawing support for the project and some of the children being taken to other institutions. Wood took three of the older children to a neighbouring primary school amid protests from Ndemo who wanted the teenagers to remain in a nursery class in the home.

Learning at the home never went beyond nursery. Children seeking education outside the home said they went without breakfast and were victimised. Wood also said he had originally been told that the children were HIV/Aids orphans but later learnt otherwise.

A number of things he had raised funds for - the hiring of a teacher, clothing and other sanitary accessories, food etc - were not provided for the children. Children interviewed independently confirmed some of Wood's accusations.


Sometimes the failure to use funds for the purpose intended is accidental. Last year, for example, a group of Nairobi round-tablers organised a go-kart race to raise funds for charity. As the volunteers returned to their day jobs, nobody bothered to work out how much money had been raised and send it to the charity they had settled on. A year later, the money was still sitting in the organisation's bank account and the group was worrying about their credibility with corporate donors.

Henry Ochido, programme manager at the NGOs Coordination Bureau, says most of the trouble with stillborn NGOs is in HIV/Aids work. "In the recent past, the National Aids Control Council has been the milk cow. But with persistent media reports on corruption surrounding such projects, the council has become more meticulous in assessing the organisations they fund."

That is not to say that there haven't been fraudulent organisations in other areas of charity work. Several hundred have been suspended in the last few years for failing to account for funds.

"We demand annual returns from every NGO as required by the code of ethics developed by the National Council of NGOs," Ochido says. "All organisations that receive Sh1 million and above must submit audited accounts every year. The reports state how much money was received in the preceding year, giving a clear breakdown of how the funds were spent." Smaller NGOs fill a standard form -- known as 'Form 14' -- that provides a similar breakdown.

The Bureau also engages field inspectors who confirm the existence and state of projects listed in NGO reports, as well as experts who evaluate the projects to determine whether they are reflected accurately in these statements. As this team is quite small, they are only able to inspect a few NGOs each year. The Bureau then submits a report on every NGO to the National Council.

"In the report we indicate any areas that seem to flout the (code of ethics)," Ochido says. "We then demand a recommendation to strike off the errant organisation from the register. This is how it is done based on the assumption that NGOs are independent of government interference and that their managers are members of the society whose integrity is beyond dispute."

Last year, two large organisations were struck off the register for failing to account for donor cash. "They had not submitted their returns although records indicated receipt of substantial amounts of money," says Ochido.

Stephen Kirimi, the acting Chairman of the NGO council, says the rapid increase in NGO numbers has made things difficult for the council.

"The council has no powers to punish deviant members," he says. "Neither does the NGO Coordination Act allow us to conduct regular one-to-one inspections on members. We only rely on what the Bureau tells us. Most of the time we get reports of mismanagement of resources from disgruntled sources within the errant NGO." Kirimi says neither the council nor the Bureau has the power to prosecute errant managers whether or there is evidence against them or not. "The law only allows the donor to take managers of NGOs to a civil court. The harshest punishment that can be meted against an errant NGO is deregistration, period."

It is not surprising that the number of charitable organisations have outgrown the regulatory mechanisms. Several factors have contributed to this explosion: they include globalisation, the end of the Cold War and the introduction of IMF and World Bank-recommended structural adjustment programmes in developing countries. Escalating poverty and unemployment compound the matter further. There are no more unlimited foreign donor funds to support welfare services to the poor in developing countries. This has left a vacuum, which the civil society has rushed in to fill. "In Kenya, for instance, crucial services like education and health are mainly offered by NGOs in... marginal areas where infrastructure is alien," Ochido says. The key areas they are actively involved in are child welfare, HIV/Aids, education, gender equality, caring for the old and poverty eradication among others.

If a donor or any interested individual or organisation wanted access to a report on any NGO, they are required to write a signed request letter to the bureau and pay a non-refundable search fee of Sh2,000. "It is unfortunate that we cannot offer this service for free currently," says Ochido. "However the bureau is computerising its record system so that one can access this information from anywhere in the world."

When it comes to how efficiently NGOs use the funds given to them, the oversight bodies count on donors to rein in the charities. In most cases, Ochido says, those supporting a particular organisation give specific conditions on how their funds are to be spent.

"Most donors want a maximum of 15 per cent of their money to be spent on administrative expenses," he says. "This is a provision that must be met by the organisation and be reflected in their annual reports, failure to which action is taken." Individual charities also have specific requirements in their constitutions against which their annual reports are checked.

While frauds exist, there are a number of factors that keep them down to a minimum. Starting an NGO, for instance, is not as easy as one might imagine.

"The biggest challenge is getting donors to support the programme," Ochido says. "The NGO sector is currently very competitive. Just as an employer will demand work experience even from a fresh graduate, donors demand from every NGO proof of experience in the proposed area. They want to put their money where there already exists a community service activity. Therefore, it becomes an uphill task for a new NGO to secure any donations."

Foreign donors are also more likely to support an organisation registered with the NGO Coordination Bureau. Without input from the Bureau, Ochido says, it can take NGOs months to secure tax-exempt status or to arrange work permits for expatriates. Registering with the NGO Coordination Bureau costs Sh22,000 for international charity organisations and Sh11,000 for local bodies.

Thousands of charitable organisations choose to register under the Societies Act instead. It is these organisations that the Kenyan donor often deals with. So the next time you're out there walking for charity, running for charity or sending in your money, you might want to ask some tough questions. Because nobody else will.

Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting - December 16, 2009

Jordan Wilson, Pulitzer Student Fellow
I didn't expect too much cooperation from the government heading into this project. The main reason is because there's been a lot of scrutiny toward the government when it comes to the IDP situation. Most people in the camps, as well as some NGOs and non-profits, blame the government for not protecting the people in the IDP camps and also point out the government hasn't followed through on its promise to help IDPs in relocation.
...
Failed Promises
Lucy Ndemo knows it will be hard for her to keep the promise her government put in place. Ndemo is a [governmental] District Officer in Nakuru, a city that saw the most ethnically diverse population of IDPs in Kenya.

It's a promise that's caused much rift between internally displaced persons in Kenya and the government.
...
Thousands are still displaced, even though they don't receive as much non-profit support because of the fact they are no longer officially recognized as IDP camps.

Now, officials call these groups resettlement camps or mobile camps. In many politicians' eyes, IDPs relocation from government-aided camps – and the problems the move brought along – shouldn't be covered on the government's dime.

"These people have created them," Ndemo said of the relocation camps. "This is the first problem of its type. The level of fear is so high that people opted not to go back to their homes after (the camps closed)."

The government has a plan to offer registered IDPs 2.5 acres of land, Ndemo said. However, she admitted that may be a plan that never sees fruition. With so many people displaced, it would be difficult to even find that much vacant land in Kenya, let alone find someone willing to sell it for a decent price.

"One of the problems is this is a lot of land and (the IDPs) might have a bias of where they do not want to go," Ndemo said.

Also, because many displaced persons have purchased land, government officials view that as their private land.

"It's not the government's policy to help people come out of certain areas," Ndemo said. "The government is still in the process of (helping) There are constraints. People have to understand this is not a fast-moving process."

Guardian - 7 February 2009
The slum, the refuge and a woman they call mama

Lucy Kayiwa is on a mission: to rescue abandoned children in Kenya's biggest shanty town

On the walls of the refuge that Mama Lucy runs for abandoned children in Kibera, a slum on the fringes of Nairobi, hang drawings depicting scenes of extreme mob violence. In the middle, a man on all fours is being beaten by men with sticks; to the right, a man on his knees pleads for his life as he is about to be stabbed; tucked away on the bottom lefthand corner, a man runs from a crowd brandishing machetes; all around, buildings on fire. There are captions that read: "Burn him!" and "Is that a human?" and "Kill him, he is a Kikuyu!"

The author is a thin, quiet boy of 15 called Denver whose parents both died of Aids, and who is HIV positive himself. His pictures are his vision of the ethnic violence that erupted in Kibera in January last year after the electoral victory by the party of Kenya's dominant Kikuyu tribe.

Hundreds of homes were burnt and looted in Kibera; dozens went up in flames in the immediate vicinity of Mama Lucy's home, which was spared, as was the refuge just around the corner that she runs. Mama Lucy (everyone calls her that, but her proper name is Lucy Kayiwa) is Ugandan, which conferred on her a certain Swiss-style neutrality amid the general mayhem. Mama Lucy has lived 40 of her 64 years in Kibera, which means she at least escaped the far worse savagery inflicted on her native country by Idi Amin. In her personal life she has endured sorrow and hardship of a kind that in Africa is the daily bread of millions. In 1982 her husband, whom she adored, left her to set up a new family in Zimbabwe, leaving her in Kibera, probably Africa's largest shanty town, with four children aged between four and 11. They lived in two rooms: in one room she slept with her four children; in the other, the children did their homework. In 1984 a fifth child joined the household, a girl aged three that a cousin of Mama Lucy's was too poor to care for.

Since then, the children have kept on coming. That same year she decided to volunteer for the St Vincent de Paul Society, a Catholic organisation that in Kibera dedicated itself to care for orphans. ("I needed something to allow me to escape from the sadness I felt at my husband's departure," she said, as if she did not have enough with her own brood.) As a nursery school teacher at an affluent Kenya school for more than 20 years, she calculates that some 2,000 children went through her hands. Since her retirement four years ago she has started the rescue centre, which has 15 children under its roof, and she has founded a nursery school that also caters for deprived children, which in Kibera means very deprived indeed.

I met Mama Lucy at the rescue centre where Denver the artist lives. It is Beverly Hills compared to the precarious rusted shacks most people call home in Kibera. Built with brick and cement with lino (not mud) floors, it has three rooms with bunkbeds for the children, whose clothes are neatly folded in drawers. They have running water and an unimaginable luxury - an indoor toilet. "In their misfortune these children are fortunate," Mama Lucy explains.

She is a short, square-shaped grandmother whose complexion, like her energy, is that of a woman 30 years younger. Constantly busy in a no-nonsense sort of way, relentlessly attentive to all around her (she later invited my taxi driver into her home for lunch), pugnacious in her resolve to do good efficiently, she combined the driving purpose of a CEO with a heart of gold. The 15 children at the centre - all impeccably good mannered, lining up to shake hands with the guest - crowded around her, craving a word, a hug. Which they all received. She was firm and warm with them at the same time. She knew all their names, she embraced them, held their hands, wiped their noses and, eagle-eyed, reprimanded any who strayed. She was the model mother for the ages, Mother Africa made flesh.

Africa, or at least this crammed corner of it, has needed her. "Denver's parents died when he was eight and his elder sister was 12, whereupon they fell into the care of some young uncles, who were unemployed drunks," Mama Lucy recalled. "The girl came to me in 2005 when she was 15 or 16, an age when she was definitely in danger from the uncles." Denver may not have faced the prospect of sexual abuse, but the uncles used him in the home as a slave and beat him routinely. "He ran away and became a criminal street child at 12. The police found him and luckily he ended up here."

As she spoke, a cry of pain went up from a child playing in the leafy patio outside the home. She leapt from her chair and rushed out, interrupting herself in mid-sentence.

"That was Elizabeth. She's OK now," she said a few moments later, resuming her seat. "But what a sad story she has! Her father lost his job in a coffee plantation and her mother came to us, two years ago, unable to look after Elizabeth and her two other children. The mother was like a corpse walking. We gave her food and a little money and a few days later she looked much better, but two months later she died. Then the father, who was helpless and jobless, came to us and said: 'Please take them'. We discovered that Elizabeth, who was only one and a half then, was HIV positive. But she is eating well and in good health, for now."

And what of her own four children? "Oh, they are all very well. They've gone far, far away." The homework they did in that two-roomed home they used to live in has borne its fruits. (Today Mama Lucy lives in a solid house with four rooms and two floors, humble by European standards, but she is regarded as rich in Kibera, she says, with an apologetic smile.) Three of her children live and work in the United States; another is thriving in Holland, with his second wife.

Did she not think of going to live with one of them? "I have been over to see them all and they have all invited me to move in with them. But I cannot. I still have lots of energy left. I am never tired, and I feel I have a debt with Kibera. They let me in here, allowed me to make a life for me and my children and - I am Christian you see, a Catholic - I still feel I have a lot to give back." However, she must sometimes fall into the grip of despair, I suggested. "I do," she said, a little surprisingly, "and this violence we had last January was terribly depressing - what it said about some of the evil in the people here. My nice Kikuyu neighbours, who I tried to hide in my home, whose houses were looted and burnt... It was terrible and it makes you feel like running away too, but then I see the smile of one of these children who have suffered so much and I see how much they need me, and I know that, for now, I have to stay."
