Lord Paul Boateng

Our patron Lord Paul Yaw Boateng became the UK’s first black cabinet minister in 2002, as Chief Secretary of the Treasury. Lord Boateng had served as the British High Commissioner to South Africa (2005 – 2009). A civil rights lawyer and Methodist lay preacher, Paul was raised to the peerage as Baron Boateng, of Akyem in the Republic of Ghana and of Wembley in the London Borough of Brent in 2010.
