In 2008, the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) launched their BBC Arabic Channel. Among the first correspondents to be selected for this prestigious position as an anchor was Eritrea's Osman Ayfarah.

Osman first started his broadcasting career in 2001 with the Arab News Network (ANN). During his time as a reporter for the ANN, Osman became one of the few correspondents to report from Afghanistan prior to the US invasion and subsequent occupation.

Osman went on to be a news anchor and even host a talk-show with ANN, before heading off to Khalifa TV, where he anchored and reported for the London-Based Arabic news station. In 2003, Osman briefly worked for Dubai TV, before he went on to join Al Arabiya TV.

In addition to speaking fluent Arabic, and English, Osman is also fluent in the Eritrean languages of Saho and Tigrinya.

  1. Osman doesn't represent Eritrea. After all, he is not proud of being an Eritrean.

  2. why would you say that? he even has a picture with Isias..

  3. As a person who knows Osman, I can tell you he is a patriot and a good man. He's a real journalist that's respected by his peers. Osman represents Eritrea, that poster who said otherwise does not know him and is probably an Ethiopian trying to diminish his accomplishments in the eyes of Eritreans by stating such false accusations.

    God bless you Osman, keep your head up brother! Eritreans are rooting for you no mater what!
