    My parents were in Mogadishu when the war happened and had to pretend to be from another tribe which the militia found hard to believe as they were extremely light(mooryans words not mine).

    My family eventually ended up in a Kenyan refugee camp in Nairobi, my parents had enough cash for a flight to Italy I believe via Dubai. In Italy they had to rip up theit old passpprt as not to get deported and buy a new one, they bought Bahamas passports that had been stolen, my dads name was Goodluck.

    From Italy they eventually ended up in Germany and then later Scandinavia.

    They heard benefits were better here in the UK so came over in 1999.
