In 1982, Dr. André Action Diakité Jackson (or M'zée Fula-Ngenge [mu:zi] [fu:la] [en:gen:gei] as he commonly is referred to) launched JFPI Corporation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire or Congo-Kinshasa).
Under his direction, JFPI became Africa's largest holding, proprietary and economic empowerment company within 4 years.
