- Mahama is claimed to have stopped Anas from airing the video on parliament
- Anas' video on corruption in Parliament is believed to have captured so many popular parliamentarians caught in the act
- A top NPP official believes Mahama had an influence on Anas
Former president Mahama has been accused of preventing investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, from airing his previous video on corruption in the house of parliament.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas had previously hinted of exposing the rot at Parliament house after his explosive expose at the Judiciary but this video, for some strange reasons, did not get aired.
According to the First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Brong Ahafo Region, Kwame Baffoe, the former President did this as a means of preventing people from seeing how corrupt he and some former Members of Parliament (MP) are.
“Some MPs from the Mahama administration were made to watch that video and because it will disgrace Mahama and his boys, he begged Anas not to show it and that is why he never showed it…,” he alleged.
Although the allegation of Kwame Baffoe can never be substantiated, it begs the question of if indeed Anas was under some political pressure during the Mahama administration.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been respected as the most feared investigative journalist in Africa. Having used deep investigative skills to uncover grave cases of corruption in Ghana and across the African continent.
The investigative journalist uncovered so many corrupt practices from the Tema Ports, Judiciary, Police department and now the Ghana Football Association.
So many public officials are not happy at Anas especially when they believe he is not just encroaching on the privacy of people but also using unauthorized means to retrieve information.
