Fallout from #12: Radio broadcaster admits taking money, accuses Anas of bad faith
Hot FM Presenter, Justice Kweku Annan has accused undercover Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas of acting in bad faith by petitioning the National Media Commission to take disciplinary actions against him.
According to Mr Annan, the accusations by Anas that he (Mr Annan) is working to destroy the image of Anas are totally false.
Mr Annan who is host of current affairs programme, Ghana Must Know says his outfit has been working on a project that cites Anas of forming a land guard brigade to terrorise people and they have spoken to a lot of people including Anas himself concerning the said project.
“We have a recording of him saying whatever we are talking to him about should not go on the record but we have him on record,” he told Evans Mensah on Newsfile Saturday on the Joy News channel.
The broadcaster also described as “ludicrous”, the claim of Anas that some persons he had investigated had bribed him (Annan) stop a story from being aired on Hot FM.
He explains that the work under contention is a piece that has been in progress since 2017, therefore, a recent video supposedly released by Anas’ team which had him allegedly taking money from some persons implicated in the ‘Number 12’ documentary, is regrettable.
“They should bring the full video out,” he challenged.
Mr Annan explained that the money he was filmed receiving is “commitment fee” paid by an agent to help dig further information into the dealings of the undercover journalist.
The agent has however, now been established as an ally of Anas.
Mr Annan said it is wrong for Anas to send someone to him under false pretences to say they want more stories that expose Anas and turn around to purport to use that interaction to drag him to the Media commission.
