Nina Elbagir was born in 1978 in Sudan and grew up in the United Kingdom. This young Sudanese journalist is a CNN correspondent in Nairobi, Kenya. We owe him the video on the sale of slaves in Libya which revealed to the face of the world this ignominy.
It was at Reuters that Nima Elbagir, a graduate of the London School of Economics, and daughter of a Sudanese newspaper creator, started her career. It then covered the conflicts in Darfur. In 2011, she joined CNN as a correspondent in Johannesburg, South Africa, before moving to Nairobi, Kenya.
In 2014, when Ebola rages, it covers, at the risk of his life, the spread of the virus. In the same year, 250 schoolgirls were kidnapped in the village of Chibok, Nigeria, by Boko Haram. Nima Elbagir immediately goes there.
Two years later, she is awarded by the Royal Television Society. That year, this specialist in difficult investigations, worked for six months on the passage of migrants from the Nile Delta to Rome. These are some of his feats of arms.
She recently traveled to Libya where she produced the now famous video showing a dozen people parading for sale. We know the impact that this video continues to have today, and the reactions of indignation that it continues to provoke.
