The mum of a teenage boy stabbed to death in the street has organised an anti-knife crime march and said: “enough is enough.”
Peguy Kato, whose son Champion Ganda died after he and a friend were attacked in May 2013, plans to walk from Forest Gate to Stratford, along Romford Road, with around 150 protesters.
She said: “It’s so important to do this.
“Someone isn’t doing their job properly, either the police or the government.
“We need to do something.”
Peguy, who lives in Harold Hill, added: “I’ve got six boys, and I can’t sleep when they’re out.
“If my 18-year-old is at a party, I call him all the time to make sure he’s safe.”
Anyone who wants to join the march should meet at Forest Gate train station at 1pm on Saturday, May 27.
