About Umaru

I have been a multimedia journalist based in Freetown, Sierra Leone for more than 20 years. I have covered many stories in many countries in Africa, the United States and India. As a freelance journalist and fixer since January 2014 I have worked for various media houses around the world including the BBC, Reuters, Aljazeera, NHK, ITV, CNN, PBI and NPR. I am also the CEO of FreeMedia Group - a media company based in my native Sierra Leone operating a newspaper and owns a radio station which will soon be on air. We also plan to set up a TV station. I am also a media trainer.
