Presentation that Yanik did at Birkbeck University on dismissing the notion of being called ‘black’…as explained that ‘black’ is just a word in English. Yanik called himself ‘Moto Moindo’ in-front of a predominantly Afro-Caribbean crowd as “I am essentially heat/ Moto and the ‘head’.” Yanik said “some agreed while others did not. however; I am Moto Moindo as I feel the fire in my being and essence like the Jinn born of smokeless fire.”



Pioneering, community orientated organisation who adopts a holistic, young peoples approach through various projects designed facilitated by and for underprivileged adolescents, in the encouragement of self awareness, responsibility in making positive life choices, staying safe and achieving economic well being.


The ‘Chief’ is beyond the physical however is responsible and manifests his peoples desires on this plane with wisdom.

Likelemba is a traditional wealth creation and management scheme known within the Congolese and indeed African systems of economics. In Nigeria, its known as Isusu. We synthesize traditional forms of wealth creation and management with the modern economical structure.

Wealth is a mind state and we adopt a holistic community and family approach to sustainability and happiness.


A Congo; region and continent stable from violence with flourishing communities and trusted establishments created by the people; for the people with our global allies as our equals. A Congo with free health, free education and free trade among ourselves, our neighboring nations and global community.

“I was in my military mindstate…as all can see..!”

‘I moved to the UK due to fears of my future when I was a child and due to the promise my father made to my mother.
I learned the British ways and I achieved above standard academically doing A levels (usually for 17-18) when I was 14.
I left secondary school with predominantly A’s, and A* and  few Bs’. I was too mentally independent to enjoy school though I read continuously and some one wise told me ‘self education is the greatest form of learning ‘ as that is what life essentially is.

“Entrepreneurship is a trait I have always had; on leaving school, I sold drugs initially (for 3 years); its safe to say I grew out of it. I later sold music, later tshirts, later imported phones from China. I did work at the same time. At 22 I set up a A*UNltd; a publishing company and I wrote a self education tookit to accompany training programs which I licensed .

“I later set up Imhotep Foundation which I run, wrote bids and delivered training programs in schools, colleges, after school programs. I also did presentations on my ideas and documented public speaking in community, Universities and government events.

“I am the present, a gift to my people from the past here to reshape and influence the future”

Many are called very few are chosen… I am chosen and I have chosen. – Tshakadi

ABOUT NORTH KIVU, D.R. CONGO (from Wikipedia)

North Kivu (French: Nord-Kivu) is a province bordering Lake Kivu in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Its capital is Goma. North Kivu was formerly a “sub-region” in the region of Kivu.

North Kivu borders the provinces of Ituri to the north, Tshopo to the northwest, Maniema to the southwest, and South Kivu to the south. To the east it borders the countries of Uganda and Rwanda. The province consists of three cities—Goma, Butembo and Beni—and six territories—Beni, Lubero, Masisi, Rutshuru, Nyiragongo and Walikale. The province is home to the Virunga National Park, a World Heritage Site containing the endangered mountain gorillas.

The region is politically unstable, and has been one of the flashpoints in military conflicts in the region since 1998. It was the scene of much fighting during the Second Congo War (1998–2003), and the Kivu conflict (2004–present).

In October 2007, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) warned of an increasing number of internally displaced people (IDP) in North Kivu related to the fighting there between the government army, the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) rebels and renegade troops, including Laurent Nkunda’s forces, and a build-up of military supplies and forces, including the reported recruitment of child soldiers by armed groups across North Kivu. The UNHCR thought that there were over 370,000 people in North Kivu displaced since December 2006, and is expanding its camps in the Mugunga area where over 80,000 IDPs were estimated. The brief capture of Goma, by M23 rebels caused “tens of thousands” of refugees. The town of Sake was abandoned.
