NNsima moved to Rooksdown in 2020 and was elected to the council in 2022. He is an IT consultant, but outside of his day job he dedicates a significant amount of time his time to voluntary community service.
As an executive member and former Chair of Basingstoke African Caribbean Catholic Association (BACCA), Nsima leads BACCA’s annual Summer Fete to raise funds for his local parish as well as the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD), which supports people that are highly disadvantaged and discriminated against – especially in hard to reach places around the world.
Nsima is also a Trustee and Secretary of Cultural Diversity Consortium – a coalition of ethnic minority groups in Basingstoke whose main focus is to represent the interests of the African/Caribbean communities in Basingstoke, to build and strengthen the community through engagement, whilst driving social cohesion and advocacy on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion.
Being active in the civic life of Basingstoke and Deane Borough, Nsima volunteers as one of the organisers of Black History Month Basingstoke. He also organises recreational sporting activities including football leagues and tennis tournaments to help promote physical activities and mental wellness amongst residents in the town. These activities are not only created to help attendees in their physical and mental health, but also designed to build bridges between people and communities of different faiths, race, and cultural backgrounds in Basingstoke.
Nsima was recently invited by Basingstoke and Deane MP to join a reference group established to monitor the key implementation of key actions by major employers in Basingstoke following an enquiry into the lived experiences of ethnic minorities in the borough.
Nsima recently won the Volunteer of the Year (Place to be Proud of AWARDS 2022) organised by Destination Basingstoke Limited.
Nsima is married with two children.
