Ace investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni, has resigned from the Multimedia group.
Manasseh has been a pivotal part of the Multimedia group since November 2012 and has gone ahead to release many investigative pieces since then, including an expose on the Zoomlion deal with government.
Manasseh came under criticism after the release of his most recent piece on the purported Militia group based at the Castle which the National Media Commission came out with a report classifying the documentary as violating media ethics.
It is unknown what exactly might have been the bone of contention that led him to part way with the media company but a statement released on his website read:
“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.
Manasseh Azure Awuni”
