Top black aide quits


BORIS JOHNSON’S most senior black adviser has resigned as the Government faced a backlash after a review said Britain is no longer a country where the “system is rigged against ethnic minorities”.

Downing Street said Samuel Kasumu will remain in post until May and he had planned his departure for several months.

His exit is not linked to the landmark report by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparitie­s, which has faced heavy criticism over its findings.
