Khafi is saying goodbye to her brother, Alexander Kareem, whom she lost on Monday, the 8th of June 2020.
Alexander was involved in a mistaken identity shooting in London, after leaving a convenience store at 12:40 am.
She shared the post on her Instagram with the caption: “I love you now and forever Alex. Rest well.
Speaking at the funeral, Khafi said the death of her brother should not be treated as another ‘black boy.’
To anybody who’s seen this (in the news) and is thinking this is just another black boy who’s been shot by violence, I want to tell you that is not the case. Alex’s life mattered, he had a future ahead of him, he’s not just another black boy. He had a family, he had friends, this is real. There are real lives that have been impacted, real people who are broken. There are so many people who have turned up today and we are here for justice.
I am begging whoever knows anything please find it in your heart to come forward. I feel bad that we’ve had to bury Alex and his killers are still not found, can he really rest in peace when his killers are roaming around?
