Deyika Nzeribe remembered by Kooj Chuhan

Deyika Nzeribe, who I have known for 20 years or probably more I guess, passed away late on 1st January. I had three phone-calls this morning to inform me, the third being from his brother. Unexpected to all, a deeply sad loss. I did not know him too well personally, but I knew him regularly and had plenty of chats with him over the years, our work crossing over many times in both race and environmental politics and with creative work. I knew him as someone full of tireless positivity, encouragement, kindness and reflection. He will certainly be missed and remembered by many. My thoughts go out especially to his family and close friends at this time, I certainly know what deep loss is after my own ongoing troubles this year. Deyika, you have helped sow wisdom and you will continue. x
