UK housing campaigner declines honour from Royal Family

UK housing campaigner Kwajo Tweneboa – who gained notoriety after he took on Europe’s biggest housing association, Clarion Housing Group, and won – has declined an MBE (a UK honour to recognise people’s amazing achievements and service to the country).

He highlights the terrible impact of the poor state of Housing in the UK, with the vulnerable and poorest most ignored. The tragic events of the Grenfell Tower disaster – where 72 innocent people tragically lost their lives six years ago – brought this reality into the public eye.

Since his victory over Clarion, Kwajo has championed the cause of others in his community living in squalid conditions, forcing landlords and housing associations to acknowledge their responsibilities and make urgent, necessary repairs.
