It goes without saying that Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been working in a new case and the whole of Ghana stands awaiting the new release. His new billboards that promise yet another revolution and this time among some high officials in government are awaited and Ghana is watching. His new expose is to be expected in June this year. Sources claim that this new Anas documentary should be expected to cause even more ripples than his judges video. Top politicians and administrators better be on the look out for this new documentary and be weary of his new findings as Anas Aremeyaw Anas goes hard in his expose videos.
The award winning and highly notable Ghanaian investigative journalist has outdone himself once more. With his latest press release of yet another eye opening investigation, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has given us a peak into the corruption of the police in Ghana. He has also gone ahead and given a detailed outlook of the implications of such actions to the Ghanaian nation. This documentary takes him undercover as an undercover MTTU officer.
MTTU officers are a division of the Ghanaian police department that are responsible for traffic regulations. According to Anas aremeyaw Anas documentary, we see a detailed outline of the depth of the problem of corruption on Ghana’s roads. This Anas video goes on ahead to reveal exactly how these corrupt officers go about the process of obtaining these bribes.
As is Anas’ nature, he first goes ahead and finds out exactly what the cause and top priorities of these officers are. He then briefly lists the required expectations which include
- To prevent and detect motor crimes and offenses
- To prevent and life loss and damage to property on the roads
- Ensuring the free flow of motor traffic
- Arrest and prosecute motor offenders
- Education to all road users
Seemingly easy to follow rules, Anas Aremeyaw Anas latest video comes as a contradiction to that statement. He joins a team of the MTTU and together they answer to calls of issues on the Ghanaian roads. A good case study as perceptibly viewed in his new video, is when a woman with a road offense speaks to officers sighting her views and confidently seeking consideration. This goes to show that the corrupt nature of the MTTU officers is so widespread to the point of expectation from citizens. As expected, it plays out that the woman pays a bribe of a few credits and is set free.
The Anas Aremeyaw Anas documentary titled bad cops goes to further expose a series of events where the police unit, the MTTU and also with some city guards use their power to gain money as opposed to doing what their job describes. This kind of corrupt behavior is so widespread and rampant that junior members of this force as seen in his documentary collaborate on some cases with their senior counterparts.
It is orchestrated to the point where an officer can play bad cop and bring in a seemingly nicer cop to come and negotiate the cost of getting out of whatever scenario or situation the offender finds themselves in. The shocking part in this new video released is the expectation of citizens and civilians of the corruption. While in the west it may be taken with a hint of surprise, the corruption by officers in the streets and roads of Ghana is as expected and known as the sun rise.
His videos however as expected do not come without criticism. Speaking to Jefferson Sackey of Jefferson reports in Toronto Canada, Anas videos show that even when caught red handed on camera, some people still go on record to claim the inferiority and unreliability of the footage. Such claims however have not prevented this acclaimed journalist from going to great lengths to seek out and expose the truth. Anas shows that more and more Ghanaians will continue to loose their lives as a result of corruption and negligence by the people being paid to ensure they are protected.
In Anas' story, we see that not all officers are corrupt greedy fellows. Some few MTTU officers are actually law abiding but with the heightened number of corrupt officers the whole unit suffers a great deal. Not only are the junior officers corrupt, the senior officers are worse and thus cannot control their subordinates.
Upcoming expose documentary
With his usual air of anonymity and his calm demeanor, Anas Aremeyaw Anas shared that he is on yet another top secret mission. Without exposing a tidbit of information he says that he does not like what he is seeing. Not one bit. He seemed anxious to share his recent findings and shake up a new sector serving justice and truth to the involved parties. We cannot help but wonder what Anas Aremeyaw Anas 2018 and his team have under their sleeves.
With his courage and passion for his work, we all await patiently for him to expose some new dirt with the belief that good things take time. Anas’ extreme and dangerous style of photography is causing ripples that are not only making headlines but also initiating real justice with hard evidence. His line of work requires toughness of spirit and perseverance as a single documentary can take months up to years to be able to see the light of day. It also goes without mentioning that such kind of work needs a brace heart.
