Veteran journalist and mentor of ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has hinted of an investigation into the lives of some “disputable men of God” in the country.
According to him, it’s time to put the lives of these “so called” men of God under a microscope for scrutiny.
“Who is Owusu Bempah, does he have a church…Too much pollution in the air, When the spiritually engage in scare mongering I should not react?” he said on Peace FM.
This was following Rev Owusu Bempah’s interview with Okay FM when he backed Kennedy Ohene Agyapong’s relentless campaign against investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“I did not understand why Anas concluded he gave bribe to Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, immediate past president of Ghana Football Association when he told him the money was for shopping…he also presented monies to people like referees, Match Commissioners when they hadn’t asked him for it, and he again turned around to say they collected bribe,” Rev Bempah said.
In a radio interview on Accra based Okay FM, Tuesday, Rev Owusu Bempah said after watching the “Number12” documentary on football corruption, he has also come to the conclusion that there are some question marks with Anas’ work.
After watching the video and whilst driving home that day, I pondered over the question marks in the documentary, he said.
“It is also mind-boggling that without demanding the bribe, Anas decided to present cash to some of the people [referees, protocol officers, sports administrators] in his video and told them it was a gift but turned around to accuse them of taking a bribe”, the man of God questioned.
He would have preferred that Anas allowed the people to make demands in return for favours to be able to convincingly conclude that was bribe.
