Professor Mukesh Kapila was born in India and is a citizen of the United Kingdom. He has qualifications in medicine, public health, and development from the Universities of Oxford and London. In 2003, he was honoured by Queen Elizabeth II and named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for his international service. In 2007, he received the Global Citizenship Award of the Institute for Global Leadership.
He is also Special Representative of the Aegis Trust for the prevention of crimes against humanity, and Chair of Minority Rights Group International. His book Against a Tide of Evil was released in March 2013. Recently, Professor Kapila visited South Africa to talk about his experiences working for the United Nations in Suday. From 2003 to 2004 he led the UN’s largest country mission at the time as the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Sudan. Then, he became a Director at the World Health Organization.
When Kapila’s superiors at the UN failed to act on his private warnings of ethnic cleansing unfolding in the region of Darfur, Kapila went public with his evidence. He first spoke out against the genocide via BBC4 radio and then spoke to other international media. This year, the Darfur conflict passes the 10-year mark. The death toll is in the hundreds of thousands. Kapila has also spoke out more recently on his concerns over current strife in Syria, the use of chemical weapons and possible intervention on the part of the United States

US actor George Clooney is helping to fund a constellation of five satellites that spy on Sudan.
The government has been accused of serious crimes against civilian members of ethnic groups which have taken up arms – charges denied by Khartoum.
Akshaya Kumar, who co-ordinates Clooney’s Satellite Sentinel Project, explained it was a “perfect” initiative for a non-governmental organisation as it would help shine a light on the government’s actions.
She described how Clooney had co-founded the project after taking his inspiration for the satellites from the telescopic camera lenses used by the paparazzi.
The Sudanese government will “know that we are watching”, she said, and explained the project will “continue to inform the international community of their [Sudan’s] actions”.
