A BLACK family were left in shock after their new home was spray painted with a derogatory message by racist thugs.

According to The Metro, The Kaseses had just moved into their new house on Leyfield Road in Milnrow, Rochdale, on Saturday and had celebrated with a small party and barbecue.

Their celebrations soon came to a end in the evening when they heard ‘spraying’ noise coming from outside. When they looked out of the window they said they could see two white men on bicycles making their way away from the property.

A disgusting message had been painted onto the window reading: ‘No blacs n*****s’.

The family called police and it is now being investigated as a hate crime.

Detectives have branded the incident ‘absolutely sickening’.

Lilian Kasese, 24, said: "I think this needs to be told. I have spoken to one or two black people in the area and they said they have experienced similar things. It needs to be told. We moved in that day. We were having a barbecue with some family. It was a normal day.


HORRIFIED: Joseph and Lilian Kasese

"My little brother heard some spraying going on. He went to check and said someone was outside. We looked out and we could see two white guys on bikes getting away."

"They couldn’t even spell properly. The community helped clean it up, we didn’t want them to but the police were taking forever to come.’

The Kaseses are now planning to move again due to the racial abuse.

"We are moving out as soon as possible. We don’t feel safe to stay here. This is the first day we moved in to Manchester, we have lived all over the UK.

"My brother is 18 – he is more shaken. There seems to be some young boys who have done it. He feels like he is in danger. ‘We have been in this country for so long, but it feels like back in the day, like it was in the 1930s. It is shocking."

The Kaseses - who are originally from South Africa - move to the UK when Lilian was a baby while her brother was born in the UK.

Inspector Rob MacGregor of GMP’s Rochdale District, said: "This is an absolutely sickening crime, that has deeply upset not just the victims, but local residents who have seen what was written. Thousands of people live together across Greater Manchester, from different walks of life, and those who write hateful messages will be dealt with accordingly.

"We are treating this as a hate crime and are working closely with our partners, Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale Borough Housing to fully investigate this matter. If you heard any kind of disturbance in the early hours of Sunday morning, or have information that could help us identify who is responsible, please do the right thing and get in touch."
