The People We Fight For Don’t Appreciate The Sacrifices We Make – Manasseh Azure Reacts To death Threats

Ace Investigative Journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has stated that if it’s God’s will that he dies for what is right, then so be it asall he can do now is to entrust his life into God’s hands for protection.

The investigative journalist has received multiple death threats following an article he wrote about the 2020 general elections. Responding to these threats, Mannaseh said if one priotizes their personal safety over the country’s progress, nothing would be done and everyone would ultimately suffer the consequences.Speaking on JoyFM’s Super Morning Show, the journalist said;“I will do what is right and trust God to protect me. If God so wills that I die standing for what is right, then I’ll die a death of nobility even if no one appreciates what I have done.Manasseh continued, “If you are living your life and you know there are people out there who want you dead, obviously you would be afraid. So courage in my own view is not the absence of fear but you sometimes need to tell yourself ‘I will not be cowed by that fear.”According to him, if the citizens who are supposed to appreciate the works he and other journalists do to fight against corruption do not, the work becomes more difficult as this helps to keep politicians on their toes.

“The very people you are fighting for don’t even appreciate that you are sacrificing for them and they join the oppressors to attack you,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Journalist Association, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and several others have condemned the threats on the life of Manasseh Azure Awuni and other journalists facing similar problems in the country.Particularly, the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has tasked the Ghana Police Service to act swiftly in order to safeguard the life of journalists who have been threatened for doing their professional work.
