DIVINE JUNIOR RAMZI NTARYIKE

DIVINE JUNIOR RAMZI NTARYIKE is a journalist based in Douala, Littoral, Cameroon.
Ntaryike Divine Jr Ramzi is a renowned award-winning journalist and alumnus of the International Visitor Leadership Program. He is the Voice of America correspondent in Cameroon and a stringer for several news outlets including Bloomberg, Science and Development Network, and the Africa Report. His unbending devotion and hard work earned him the Cameroon Journalist of the Year Award in 2009 and Best Discovery Story Award in 2010.  He’s gone ahead to bag several others.

In October 2012, Ramzi graduated with distinction from a two-year science journalism course called the Science Journalism Cooperation run by the World Federation of Science Journalists. He plans to start a science news agency to fill what he sees is a gap in science reporting in Africa.  Ramzi believes the lack of emphasis on science in African media has significantly contributed to the continent’s development stagnation. 
“Ever since I joined the journalism profession 15 years ago, the flames of a fiery passion to nourish public opinion with untarnished information to enable informed decision-making have not stopped burning,” Ramzi says. “And that’s despite the stubbornly harsh hurdles of working within a context where hard-hitting journalists are frequently placed in the firing line by crooked individuals with skeletons in their closets.”
