Isaac helped establish the first Indigenous rights organisation in D.R. Congo in the mid-1990s. He was imprisoned because of his activism by the rebel regime that occupied the area from 1998 to 2003, but managed to escape and flee to Nairobi with his wife and 10 children, later registering as a refugee with UNHCR and being resettled in Australia. A key reason I became interested in this project was the lack of good first-person narratives by Congolese about the Congo Wars.
