My friend and colleague Deyika Nzeribe, who has died aged 50. Deyika was a pan-African poet, politician and environmental activist. He was a leading member of the Green party in Manchester. Deyika passed on as he prepared as the Green party candidate for the Mayoral seat in Manchester. He is highly missed by all those whose paths crossed his because he was always very positive and he did his best for everyone and the community..
