Congo's Activist in Exile

Poverty, violence, oppression.

When they are left unchallenged, they can run wild, leaving many in our world to suffer the adverse consequences. From a young age, Jenny Dakosta Van Mputu has fought against injustice, and now stands adamantly for the protection of human rights in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He is Congo's Activist in Exile, and he is on a relentless mission to secure freedom in his homeland.

A Bit of This & A Bit of That

Hidden away amongst the backstreets of Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter lies This & That, a small Indian café owned by Ismail Mallu. Ismail is a first-generation Indian migrant who came to the UK in 1966 during the peak years of migration from the subcontinent. Through his culinary artistry, Ismail has been able to enrich the culture of Manchester to the point where his ‘rice and three’ dish has become a staple of the city. He continues to perpetuate his Indian roots, but has been openly embraced as an exemplary figure in Mancunian society. Ismail holds a dual identity; he is partly Indian and partly Mancunian, a bit of this and a bit of that.
