The courage to inform: Antoine Assalé Tiémoko, Abidjan's righter of wrongs
Many kinds of writing can provoke fierce and angry opposition, and the work of journalist Antoine Assalé Tiémoko more than most. His newspaper, L’Éléphant Déchaîné, uses satire to denounce injustice, corruption, embezzlement and other evils in his native Côte d’Ivoire. As a journalist, he is perfectly entitled to engage in satire, a simultaneously serious and impertinent writing style, but essential to an open democratic debate.
