Anas, others to address JHR lecture in Accra

On Monday, December 13, three of Ghana’s most celebrated journalists will join for a one-night only public lecture at the African Regent Hotel in Accra.

The speakers, preeminent investigative reporter Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Joy FM News Editor Ato Kwamena Dadzie and GJA journalist of the year Samuel Agyeman will join to speak about investigative journalism and human rights reporting in Ghana.

Agyeman will talk specifically about his work on disability rights in Ghana, in addition to his award-winning piece about homelessness in Accra while Anas will address his now-famous story about Osu children’s home.

The event, organized by the Canadian-based media development organization, Journalists for Human Rights (JHR), is free, open to the public and will kick off at 7:00 p.m. at the African Regent Hotel in Airport West.

“This is a great opportunity to bring together people interested in the media and journalists themselves to talk about some of the crucial stories driving the press in Ghana,” says Jenny Vaughan, JHR’s overseas program coordinator. “It’s not enough to simply read the papers or listen to the radio. We need to start talking about the media to make sure it remains robust, relevant and responsible.”
