Family’s pain as uni-bound teen Promise Nkenda dies in Canning Town stabbing murder | ITV News

Promise Nkenda’s grieving sister said her brother always stayed out of trouble and had just been accepted to go to university.

But at 17 his life ended in what police described as a “sustained attack” in east London’s Canning Town on Valentine’s Day as he became the third teenager to be stabbed to death in the capital in 2018.

Sister Maludi Nkenda told ITV London’s Ria Chatterjee: “I never thought I would experience this until it’s actually hit my doorstep.”

And she called on the government to do “more than more” to tackle knife violence.
