The father of a seven-year-old girl who allegedly starved to death has called what happened “absolutely disgraceful”.
An independent inquiry has been launched into the death of Khyra Ishaq, of Handsworth, Birmingham.
Angela Gordon, 33, and Junaid Abuhamza, 29, have been charged with neglect in connection with her death.
Ishaq Abu Zaire vowed to find out what happened to his daughter. Birmingham City Council has said Khyra was not in its care at the time of her death.
Speaking for the first time about his daughter’s death, Mr Abu Zaire told the BBC: “I’m just as ignorant as everyone else as to what happened.
“But… you can put your house on it that we’re going to find out, one way or another, we are going to find out exactly what happened here.”
Khyra’s father had been out of the country until Saturday and he said he had not seen his children in more than a year. Continue Reading…
I have a question….
So, where were the rest of Khyra’s family? They are placing blame on Birmingham City Council’s door step, telling the world that they failed to protect her, that they should have done this and that, but WHERE WERE THEY???
I’m assuming that various family members lived nearby so did they not bother checking in on Khyra and her siblings, or did they opt to sit in their homes turning a blind eye instead?
Khyra’s biological father hadn’t seen his 7 year old daughter for more then a year. Upon hearing the tragic news that’s when he returned to these shores!
He has the nerve to stand there accusing the authorities of doing nothing, but what the hell was HE doing along with other members of the family, while little Khyra starved to death?
It is claimed he was out of the country, so were there regular phone calls etc, or is this just another case of an absentee father going a long with his daily life not worrying about the welfare of his kids, believing that others will/should take on that responsibility for him?
….I am so angry right now!
Rest In Peace Khyra
