Ghana News Stories
In 2016, Sarah became the international face of Ghanaian news network, GHOne TV as an Investigative Journalist and TV Presenter. Upon her arrival, Sarah dived deep into the elections covering rally’s and expectations of the new government post election in remote villages that had never been documented before. There she immersed herself in fishing with Voltarians and took part in traditional village life from gathering chickens to preparing fufu in order to find out how each member of the family survived. She then travelled to the opposition threshold and uncovered a unique sacred lake buried in the heart of the Ashanti region, which was created by a meteoric crater – one of 6 to exist on the planet and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve under threat from climate change. She took part in fishing on the unique peduas and ventured deeper in search of cacao farms to investigate how farmers in rural areas were coping with trade. Sarah has gone undercover to uncover exclusive and shocking material in some of her investigations, one reaching those responsible and steering positive change. Her stories range from exposing life in the most dangerous slums, ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’ where she chased crime to its justice and investigated poor living conditions amongst prostitutes in the brothels. Sarah was appointed the first to fly by the Minister of Tourism to mark the Kwahu Paragliding Festival 2017, which went viral after her experience was covered by Ghana’s biggest communication network MTN. Her interest in the culture took her right back to its roots when she covered the ‘Middle Passage of Slavery’ exhibition at Ghana’s infamous Cape Coast slave castle. Sarah’s work is rooted with purpose with a desire to make a difference in the lives of the people she documents or lives with and this was evident when she reported social impact stories of a disabled woman living in a makeshift house without her only child who was blind to a woman who ran away with her twins to save them from ritual sacrifice by their father in Nigeria. These stories created impact and were recognised internationally. Sarah’s efforts invited her to be the only westerner to join the homecoming ceremony of the Manya tribe deep in the wilderness of Ghana’s Shai Hills where she joined them for the Nmayem Festival to trek to the peak of the Manya hill commemorating when the British forced them out of their hilltop homes and the lives of their ancestors.
