Two charged over schoolboy's stabbing

VICTIM: Yemurai Kanyangarara, 16, was stabbed just weeks after sitting his GCSEs

TWO BOYS have been charged with the murder of a teenager stabbed in the neck in south east London.

Yemurai Kanyangarara, 16, was attacked after getting off a 96 bus in Upper Wickham Lane in Welling on Friday.

The youths, aged 15 and 14, will appear at Camberwell Youth Court today.

Yemurai, who went to St Columba's Catholic Boys' School, in Bexleyheath, had recently moved to Leicester to avoid violence.

He had been living with his father in Leicester, after concerns over violence in the capital and had come to London only to sit his exams, his friends said.

Yemurai, who moved to the UK from Zimbabwe as a child, was the eighth teenager to be murdered in the capital since January.
