Manasseh Azure Resigns from Multimedia Group

03/08/2019


Investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has resigned from Multimedia Group seven years after working with the Kokomlemle-based media house.


Manasseh’s resignation comes barely a week after the National Media Commission (NMC) described the “Militia in the Heart of the Nation” he authored for JoyNews, a subsidiary of Multimedia Group as misleading and a misrepresentation.


The 22-minute documentary sought to portray that the group, D-Eye, had been uncovered training and operating at the Christianborg Castle at Osu in Accra, which is a “security zone” with the complicity of the New Patriotic Party (NPP)-led government.


The government filed a petition against Joy News’ “militia documentary” at the National Media Commission (NMC), and asked for an order for a retraction and an apology.


It is unclear why Manasseh has resigned.
In a note published on his personal website, he expressed utmost gratitude to his former employers, colleagues and everyone who has been helpful to him.
It reads:


“I wish to announce my resignation from The Multimedia Group.
I thank management of company for the opportunity to work with what in my view is the most credible, influential, impactful and daring media organistion in Ghana. I thank them for their support and encouragement all these years. It is no doubt that if I were to work again in a media house in Ghana, I would choose The Multimedia Group.


I also wish to thank all who have supported me in diverse ways since November 2012 when I joined The Multimedia Group. To the audience of The Multimedia Group and the sources who helped me in my work, I am eternally grateful.


I will continue to serve Ghana as a freelance investigative journalist and dedicate more time to the writing of books.
