Award-winning Journalist, Samson Lardy Anyenini, who is also the lawyer of investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni, has revealed that he once chased away an associate of a top politician who had been sent to bribe Manasseh with a car and some cash.
According to Mr. Lardy Anyenini, the said bribe was intended to get Manasseh to drop an investigative piece he was working on.
Samson Anyenini revealed that at the time, Manasseh had only a rickety old motorbike, and even though several juicy bribe offers came his way, he rejected them and held on to his integrity.
According to Samson, on this occasion, a top politician sent a respected elderly man to his office, attempting to get him to influence Manasseh to take the car and cash and drop the story he was working on.
Samson says he bluntly told the elderly man not to try that with Manasseh, and politely got him out of his office.
