He said: “It is an amazing privilege and honour to be appointed as mayor of Brent and to serve this great borough that I have called home since 2004.

“I gained inspiration from my late dad to get involved in local politics. In my mayoral year I hope to be able to work with all of Brent's rich and diverse communities. I look forward to raising money for my two amazing local charities for the year.”
