Wow. Mo has achieved so much, yet this could be his greatest achievement. Having the courage to come forward & discuss his past, he may change the lives of so many trafficked people.

Mo. You are such a blessed person alive. Even though you came to UK looking for your father, you found your real Father which is The Almighty Lord. Indeed he protected you and cared for you to be one of the best runners in the world. Hope you ll be able to help lots of people from all of the world to come out and tell their story. May God continue blessing you and your family. You are such a strong person to keep this for long time. Wishing you all the best!

My story is similar to his, many refugees can relate, many of us don’t talk about it. I am yet to talk about my story to people that aren’t close to me. He’s a brave and inspirational.

There’s more to this than meets the eye, I’m not sure I believe his ‘new’ story, if you start digging there are an awful lot of discrepancies in his story.

On 26 June 1960, British Somaliland declared independence as the State of Somaliland. Five days later, on 1 July 1960, the State of Somaliland voluntarily united with the Trust Territory of Somalia (the former Italian Somalia) to form the Somali Republic.The government of Somaliland, a self-declared sovereign state that is internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia, regards itself as the successor state to British Somaliland. In 1991, after a bloody civil war for independence in the northern part of Somali Democratic Republic, the area which formerly encompassed British Somaliland declared independence. In May 1991, the formation of the “Republic of Somaliland” was proclaimed, with the local government regarding it as the successor to the former British Somaliland as well as to the State of Somaliland. However, the Somaliland region’s self-declared independence remains unrecognised by any country.

Lol guys as Somalian Since the outbreak of war in our country, all the people who got the chance to move to foreign countries have helped their relatives who stayed in refugee camps or inside Somalia. People brought their friends or relatives as if they were family members. I mean, they lied about the immigration file. The same thing happened with this man. He was brought in by one of his relatives. He lied in this report, It is normal to ask senior family members to take care of young ones who may work for you unfairly, but in the end they are your family and they brought you illegally with your consent or the consent of your parents in Somalia. If he wasn’t famous, he would have been deported immediately after it was revealed that he came through a fraudulent immigration file

He reminds me of Tupac Shakur.

He should have spoken up before getting his knighthood and lying about his parentage.
Muhyadin Abdillahi
So your name is hussein and your son is called hussein too
John Doe
Oh I see, now his running career has finished its time to source a new income, interviews, maybe a book and hopefully leading to Sir Mo. I just know there’s going to be racial abuse mentioned somewhere. I can also see immigrants using this example as a means to get in a country illegally, ” I can run, why can’t I stay”. Before woke accuses me of being racist its not because I’m white, its because I’m cynical….why not highlight immigration problems when his famous and not when his seeking new employment.
Big Vadge
Yet no reaction or rioting or statue smashing about the Somali family that was going to use him as a slave here 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Is the documentary to paint him as a victim or to raise awareness on child trafficking?
Husseim Ali
as a somali, i cant swallow this story, it looks to me a half fake, most somalis come to the west illegally, that is true but taking small boy as a domestic servant, who does that, the harsh reality is that somali adult males are not known for their cooking or cleaning skills let alone a 9 years old child, iam 100% sure that who ever brought him to UK are blood relatives of him but somehow he suffered someform of child abuse.
Bushwhacked Dos.
So many holes In this story it’s laughable.
