Former London Supply Teacher Spends Summer Holidays As Deputy Prime Minister Of Somalia

by | 9th, September 2011

SOMALIA really is the land of opportunity. Mohamed Ibrahim, 64, a support teacher at the Newman Catholic College in Brent, north London, is now the deputy prime minister of Somalia.

He leaves behind a farewell email:

“I was unexpectedly called to my country during the summer holidays at a time when the country is facing a humanitarian crisis such as drought and famine. I will always have Newman Catholic College in my heart and won’t forget the wonderful colleagues.”

Richard Kolka, the institution’s headmaster, tells the Mail:

“Mohamed contacted me in August and said he wouldn’t be returning as a learning support teacher because he was now a deputy prime minister.”

He has tough job. Somalia is hit hard by war and starvation.

But, as we, Somalia offers opportunity. Remember Dahir Abdullahi Kadiye who oversaw the freeing of The Chandlers who has been kidnapped by pirates? He had owned a minicab cab firm in Marble Arch.

Somalia is a bit like the BBC – you can be an experts on anything if the caption says you are. Just as Guy Goma
