Mur­der teen was a high flier

The Wharf - - Details -

A teenager shot dead in Strat­ford had been due to fly to LA this week to fin­ish his train­ing as a cadet flight sergeant.

Ab­dul Mayanja, 19, right, was gunned down in Well Street on Fri­day on his way to a friend’s bar­be­cue.

His fa­ther Kidza said his son had been “des­tined to fly in the RAF” af­ter start­ing his train­ing at 14 at 338 West Ham Squadron air cadets.

The busi­ness con­sul­tant, 58, said: “He was a bea­con of light to our fam­ily and com­mu­nity.”

A Go­FundMe page has been set up in his mem­ory.
