His family fled to Kenya where he learnt English,
Swahili and Arabic. Due to persistent crackdown
on Somali refugees, his family relocated to the
United States in 2006. He studies literature at St
Louis community college, CT .
In African Writing:
‘For about six months now,’ said Khalid to Fr. Woodrath, his British neighbour and missionary. ‘I have been contemplating a lot. The human race is in big trouble and I have come to find out exactly what needs to be rectified. The problem had been there all along. If only I had paid closer attention, I could already have done a lot to improve the current state of affairs.’
‘Tell me about it,’ said Fr. Woodrath.
Khalid took a little notebook from his breast pocket, raised it in the air and said firmly, ‘Here’s the cure, Father. The ultimate solution! The first lines of what could go down in history as the script that saved mankind and his habitat from ultimate destruction.’
