Covington, Kentucky

not Operation Murambatsvina

Covington became the focal point for Northern Kentucky’s homeless problem in April 2002, when city workers razed Ohio riverfront homeless camps.

The campers, most of whom were away at the time of the sweep, said they lost everything from kittens and family photos to work clothes. Covington officials said the makeshift camps were a health hazard and an eyesore.
