Ace Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has hinted at the airing of a new expose come 2024.
According to him, the shocking piece is set for release in January 2024, a year that would also see Ghana elect its president.
Anas said he was unsettled after watching some scenes in the yet-to-be-released documentary. Having watched the middle of the documentary, he had to step out of the room due to the gory scenes revealed.
“Even when I saw the film and got to the middle, I got out and went away because the scenes were gory,” he said. Expressing his shock, he added, “People can be evil.”
The journalist added that the documentary is going to be viewed worldwide. “It will go globally; it will play on the world service; it will play on the BBC Africa eye,” according to him.
Anas, whose life has been threatened at some point in his undercover work in Ghana, has been praised and criticized by many. While some have expressed concern about his ethics, others have thanked him for exposing corrupt politicians and people placed in high positions.
In one of his exposes leading to the removal of the Ghana Football Authority (GFA) President, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, which had to be settled in court, the journalist refused to uncover his face as a witness to the case. He expressed that doing as demanded would jeopardize his safety.
Nonetheless, Anas’ works have been featured in many news networks and have quite become the defining pieces of investigative journalism, especially across the African continent.
