Kennedy Agyapong has stated that his decision to unmask “untouchable” investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas is not because he is against fighting graft in the country but seeks to ensure, the opportunity given him is not exploited to amass wealth.
According to the NPP legislator, he does not understand why the pursuer is neck deep in corruption while he cracks whip on others he perceives are indulged in corrupt practices.
He particularly bemoaned the several instances he alleged Anas had investigated a number of people and taken huge sums of money from some and excluded them from his exposés.
“I have no problem at all with fighting corruption in the country, but it has to be fair and he shouldn’t use it as an avenue to enrich himself,” Ken Agyapong said on Adom TV’s news analysis show “Badwam” on Tuesday.
The MP for Assin Central launched an anti-Anas campaign ahead of airing of the popular documentary “Number 12” by the undercover journalist with support from the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, on the alleged rot in football and politics in Ghana.
The expose which indicted resigned Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi and other sports officials had caused shockwaves through the country, leading to probe of the former GFA boss.
But Ken Agyapong had raised red flags on the investigative piece arguing that Anas’ modus operandi is wrong and largely lures people to fall from a bribe which he captures as evidence to incriminate them.
After vowing on a number of platforms to expose Anas Aremeyaw Anas in alleged bribery, the NPP firebrand has announced the screening of his exposé on the award-winning journalist on Wednesday, 7pm at the forecourt of Oman FM.
