Kennedy Agyepong has again launched his unceasing attacks on Anas Aremeyaw Ana’s, ace investigative journalist, this time claiming the mode of Anas’ operations could cause him death should he be working in some other countries.
Kennedy Agyepong has exposed his seeming hatred for the ace investigative journalist ahead of his latest exposé, attacking his way of gathering evidence and exposing corrupt officials.
This time round, Kennedy Agyepong who could not stand the way Anas has gathered his facts and evidence thinks he could be assassinated if he is to work in another country.
Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas deserves the death sentence for his corrupt acts, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has said.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP said he had evidence to this effect.
Speaking on Accra-based Adom FM, he said “I want to establish clearly that Anas is corrupt. If a customs officer should be jailed for 25 years for taking GHc50, for Anas and the evidence I have about him, he has to be hanged.”
“We have to hang Anas for the evil things he has done to Ghanaians in the course of his investigations, which he has used to amass wealth in Ghana,” Kennedy Agyapong added.
He insisted that Anas had no moral grounds to investigate acts of alleged corruption.
“If I tell somebody he is corrupt, I should make sure I am genuine before I point my finger at someone,” the MP stated.
Anas is in the spotlight ahead of his is documentary expose of corruption in Ghana football.
Kennedy Agyapong has already been criticised for inciting violence against the journalist.
Reporters Without Borders also said it was alarmed by threats to the life of Anas.
RSF’s concerns follow the Ghana Journalists Association’s (GJA) call for 24-hour protection for Anas.
The GJA said some unidentified persons have also been tracking Anas’ office “and other locations ostensibly to harm him.”
The documentary is set to be premiered in Accra on June 6 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
