Simon Ateba – #2307

Simon is the White House correspondent from Today News Africa, and let’s just say he’s known for his tendency to question authority. And why shouldn’t he?

Perhaps his past can explain his lack of fear: he’s been attack by pirates with AK-47s, kidnapped in Nigeria, and arrested in Cameroon. After all that, having a press secretary yell at you probably doesn’t seem so scary.
