Former Lewisham councillor Duwayne Brooks, has entered the contest to become the next mayor of London.
Brooks who was recently awarded an OBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) told ITV News he would stand up for London’s cabbies in their battle with minicab firms like Uber.
People come to London to ride in black taxis. It’s an experience and we are going to lose that experience if we allow organisations like Uber and others to destroy our black taxi heritage.
In April 1993 Duwayne witnessed the murder of his best friend Stephen Lawrence, at the hands of a group of white youths chanting racist abuse. The friends had been standing waiting for a bus in Eltham, south east London.
