Zubaida Ismail

Zubaida Ismail is a broadcast journalist based in Tamale, Ghana. I have extensively covered the Northern Region of Ghana from conflict reporting to human right issues. I recently was in Rwanda to cover some stories on hate speeches on media platforms and how the media can plug a country to civil wars if not regulated.

I do this as the lead reporter (Freelancer) for Media General and its sister platforms namely TV3, 3FM, Onua FM, Connect FM, Akoma FM, and www.3news.com

I cover more social justice stories for all media platforms examples television,radio, and online.



Special report: Zubaida Ismail takes a look at how alleged witches reintegrate into their communities as she follows one, Mma Wuriche, to her community after she spent several years in a witch camp.


Banished is a short television documentary which profiled alleged witches who have been banished from their homes in a village called Zarantinga in the north-east region of Ghana.


I visited Kigali in June and July,2019 during the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of End of Genocide and filed a survivor’s story.


This is a short documentary on Access To Healthcare by Alleged Witches in the Gambaga Witches Camp in Nalerigu is the North-East Region of Ghana. My intention is to expose the human rights abuses faced by these vulnerable women in their communities. It is also to draw the attention of policy makers to the rights of every citizen under the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and the many International Conventions and Treaties including the Sustainable Development Goals that Ghana has signed on and the blatant refusal to enforce the laws by the Law Enforcement Agencies.
