Ace Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has hinted of more “shocking” revelation in 2016, which he says, is going to be tighter.
“I can tell you that what is in the pipeline is shocking,” he said in a yet to be broadcast interview on BBC, adding that he and his Africa Investigates team have pen down some strong African stories that they are going to look at in 2016.
“You know I work with Africa investigate as part of the World Investigate thing and we have put together a few issues on Africa that we’re gonna look at….and they are very strong African stories and I can tell you that we are in for a tighter 2016. I’ve seen it and I can tell you, it is not going to be nice!,” Anas stated.
Anas who use unorthodox means, sometimes risk his life to procure what he term as hard-core evidence told the host of the show, Akwasi Sarpong, that his protection is in the hands of God.
“When we talk protection, it is the Almighty that has a lot of protection for all of us. I try to hide away. I want to live to be able to tell the next story,” he said.
Anas has over the years been at the forefront of uncovering rot across the world, particularly in Africa with primary focus on issues of human abuses and corruption. His latest investigation into Ghana’s judiciary has resulted in the dismissal of some 20 judges caught on tape taking bribes.
Five other judicial staff who were incriminated in the video and found guilty of the stated misconduct have also been dismissed while some other High Court judges are going through impeachment processes.
