Controversial investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni, who butted heads with the government and the National Media Commission over a documentary on vigilantism, has announced his resignation from the Multimedia Group.

Manasseh, in a statement on his official website, said he was leaving the network but would continue his work as an investigative journalist as well as author new books.

“I wish to announce my resignation from The Multimedia Group,” Manasseh wrote.

“I thank management of [sic] 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 was at the centre of a journalistic integrity case after the government filed a complaint with the National Media Commission (NMC) over his documentary ‘Militia in the Heart of the Nation’, detailing vigilantism at the former seat of government, the Osu Castle.

The NMC ruled that the documentary flouted ethical and journalistic standards in parts, whilst expressing worry over the issue raised on vigilantism.

Manasseh’s resignation comes barely a fortnight after that decision.
