Kenyan councillor in UK says Basildon residents get raw deal
AN IMMIGRANT councillor claims people born and bred in Basildon get a raw deal from the council when it comes to housing.
Labour councillor Daniel Munyambu said: “Local residents we represent should be a priority. I have witnessed, and honestly myself being an immigrant, have seen a young mother with two children in a one-bedroom house, who is expecting another child, and when she applied for a bigger house she was told to have more children.”
Mr Munyambu, who came to the UK from Kenya in 2007 and owns his own home, said he had also seen an immigrant with two children who the council had provided a two-bedroom property for.
He added: “The policy is not working for the better of the local residents.”
