Selase Kove-Seyram, Ghana

Investigative Journalist

In a recent documentary Selase Kove-Seyram asked why, while as many as one third of the Ghanaian population suffer from Sickle Cell disease, their government does lamentably little to treat, assist or even diagnose the people in need of such help. The answer: ‘donors don’t prioritise the condition.’ Kove-Seyram has also highlighted the plight of street children in his country, many of whom turn to sex work or live on garbage dumps, whilst the government’s department of social welfare seems to be twiddling its thumbs.
His latest feat was to join an activists’ project and a New York Times crew, chasing ruthless fish poachers from his (and other countries’) coastal waters.
