- Kennedy Agyapong has expressed fears about Anas Aremeyaw Anas' health
- He claims that the journalist could soon contract cancer
- He added that Anas needs to take off his mask in his own interest
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has expressed concern about the health of popular investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Speaking on the Badwam show on Tuesday, July 31, 2018, he revealed that court processes have begun with regard to a defamation suit leveled against him by the journalist.
He went on to say that he is concerned about Anas’ constant use of a mask, as it could cause cancer.
“We have begun the court processes and I am ever ready to meet Anas in court. The only problem I have with Anas is his constant use of hood even in the court.
The last time I met him at the General Legal Council, I felt sorry for him”, the MP stated.
“Why choose to be journalist in a hood? Can’t he be without the hood for once by removing those things around his face? I’m even scared he may soon get cancer because the heat in those beads is just scary. He should think twice,” he added.
Agyapong has dragged Anas to the General Legal Council (GLC), accusing him of misconduct as a lawyer.
He claims he has evidence suggesting that Anas, a lawyer and a journalist, connived with a state attorney to have a case against some accused persons dismissed.
The MP has been on a campaign against Anas, insisting that his style of journalism amounts to entrapment, contrary to the ethics of journalism and law.
He also accused Anas of using intimidating tactics to steal landed properties at Tse Addo in Accra.
Anas is also seeking ¢25 million in aggravated damages in a defamation suit filed against the NPP legislator before an Accra High Court for publishing defamatory materials about him.
The MP had earlier declared that he will not appear in court if Anas is not forced to remove his hood. He however appears to have softened his stance about that issue.
