Event: Oxford Peace Talks 2019
Location: The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, Mansfield College
“In the ghetto space, I was influenced by Somali colleague to join one of the terrorist groups. In Kampala, I fell back to the streets and the gang space where there was no hope or opportunity. When I met a police officer, he listened to me and treated me like a son, something I was longing for in my home because I didn’t have anyone to talk to. In 2014, I started my journey towards transformation and talked to inspire gangster to adopt a positive living. I and my friend started co-founded Ngabo Youth Friendly Service Centre as a space for ghetto people, for an alternative of their lives.”
Former gang member and Founder of Ngabo Youth Friendly Service Centre in Uganda, Sadat Zagah Zziwa, invites us to his personal stories from the ghetto to the positive living. For Sadat, it is only through genuine involvement with the people around you.
