Kae Kurd Parents
Kae is a Kurdish. Kurds are an ethnic and religious group, most of whom live in Greater Kurdistan, an international region comprising parts of Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Syria.
He came to Britain at 6 months old as a refugee. His parents had been part of the Kurdish resistance movement against Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi government and were forced to flee as refugees.
“At my age, my father was running at tanks”, he told one interviewer.
As a result of the Anfal campaign against Kurds in Iraq, Kae’s parents fled to Iran, where he was born. Partly as a result of his father being injured in a poison gas attack in Iraq, his family was accepted as refugees and settled in Brixton, South London, where he still lives.
