Somali Parents Sending Their Kids Back to Africa to Escape London Knife Crime Epidemic

Hundreds of Somali teenagers are being sent back to East Africa by their parents in order to avoid becoming victims of London’s spiraling knife crime epidemic.

One mother told the BBC how her son was stabbed four times in just 17 days in London.

“They damaged his bladder, his kidneys, his liver. He’s got permanent damage,” she said, adding “He was safer there [in Somaliland] than he was here, 100 per cent more safe than in London.”

Another 21-year-old man called Yusuf told mentor Jamal Hassan he moved to Nairobi because he was seeing people get stabbed in London “every other day”.

Islington mayor Rakhia Ismail, a Somali immigrant, says that around 40 per cent of Somali families are sending their children back home.
