- Anas Aremeyaw Anas will soon release his latest undercover investigation on street beggars
- The investigation is aimed at ridding the streets of these beggars who are mostly children

Multiple award-winning winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has hinted of a new undercover investigation on children involved in street begging as he released a teaser of what to expect in the project.
The video which was sighted on YouTube, featured a song from multiple award-winning dancehall act, Livingstone Etse Satekla, known by the stage name, Stonebwoy.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Starrfmonline.com, the project in collaboration with OAfrica under the #KidsOurFuture campaign aimed at highlighting child trafficking in the alms begging business and some of the abuses such children are subjected to.

“Further studies and investigations conducted by Tiger Eye PI revealed that the phenomenon of child begging was more than just children asking for money on the streets”, the report added.
“It was observed that children were trafficked by adults and used as business. Children are denied of their right to education, good health, nutrition, protection and choices and do dangerous work for the benefit of the traffickers, who buy and sell them across borders with impunity,” the release on the project said.
The investigation which is dubbed, “Chained by Begging”, is ten-minute film on street begging with children and features an original score by Stonebwoy.
The investigation will be shown on all major TV networks across the country in August.
It would be remembered that a song of Kojo Antwi was also featured in the teaser for Anas' previous report, 'Number 12'.
According to Anas, street beggars using children to solicit for funds was a crime tantamount to child abuse.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas in June exposed the rot in the halls of Ghana football when he released his investigation titled, ‘Number 12’.
There have been many rippling effects on the investigation with the then head of the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, resigning from his position.
Many referees have also been handed bans after they were implicated in the video for taking bribes to ‘twist’ the outcome of football matches.
