An Obituary for Deyika is posted here:
The Campaign team support the family of Deyika by sharing the following:
Deyika Nzeribe, a beloved son, brother, friend and father of three passed away suddenly on New Year's Day 2017. This came as a great shock to all who knew him.
Deyika was a tireless advocate for human rights, equality and more than anything he was a believer in people. Manchester Green Party's mayoral candidate, he worked for many years to make Hulme and the city a better place for all.
Deyika just couldn't say no; always putting others needs before his own.
Please consider supporting Deyika's family by making a donation to assist with the funeral arrangements (estimated costs £5000).
Any funds exceeding the funeral costs will go towards an appropriate and lasting memorial within the community that benefitted greatly from his activism in the arts and politics.
