MBE landlord at war with tenants


16 December 2005

Andy Tristem

A SOCIAL reformer who was honoured by The Queen for championing refugee causes is at war with his tenants.

Ronnie Moodley, chief executive of Arhag Housing Association, won an MBE in 2003 for fighting racism in Britain for 25 years.

Arhag owns some 600 properties across 13 London boroughs, including 19 homes in Arlington Road in Camden Town, and made an operating surplus of £2million last year.


Mr Moodley stated: "In accepting the MBE I will continue to challenge institutionalised racism, serving my community in the spirit in which I have always done."

But tenants in Amilcar Cabral Court, Porteus Road, Paddington have been less than happy with the association he heads, forcing Arhag to pay compensation for failing to fix damp rooms, broken boilers, leaky pipes and faulty kitchens.

"In his MBE acceptance statement he dedicated the award to his friend Steve Biko, who he said had been "murdered by the racist South African regime". Steve Biko, he said, had taught him everything he knew and he continued to live according to his principles."

Did Steve Biko work for Inside Track?
