What we expect to see in chained by begging?
In a tweet sent on the 29th of July, we see Anas video in a car ride through the city. He speaks of his love for children and highlights some of the documentaries he has done that involve children. In Chained by Begging Anas is out to expose child trafficking rings that have taken advantage of both children and public sympathy. It is without a doubt easier to feel sympathetic towards a child begging on the street than to feel the same way for an adult. To take advantage of this and profit from it would require traffickers to find a way to entrap children in their service living in the worst possible conditions.
A UNICEF study on the various demographic data of street children in Zimbabwe had some very shocking revelations that are not limited to Zimbabwe alone. A majority of street children are children that are of the street and sleep in the streets at night, that is to say they were born on the streets. Things get a little more interesting and darker, there is a significant portion of street children that work on the streets (begging for handouts) and then go home to sleep at night. Others alternate between sleeping at home or on the streets.
This gives us a new perspective; the ever-increasing number of street children may not be solely because they are orphaned or have nowhere else to go but rather they are not in control of what they do. Some of these street children have parents that sed them out to beg instead of going to school. Anas Aremeyaw Anas new video will definitely shade some much-needed light into the matter and bring to the public the abuse these children undergo.

Who will be implicated by the latest video?
The UNHCR last year reported that human traffickers have used Ghana as both a hub, source and destination for trafficking of men, women and children to the Middle East, Europe and West Africa. It is a dire situation that needs a quick resolution because children are the most afflicted, being forced in to slavery and sexual abuse from a young age for many years. These trafficking rings and the adults that take advantage of the desperation of innocent children are the target of Anas Aremeyaw Anas fight against child trafficking and child abuse.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas, through his highly acclaimed private investigation firm, Tiger Eye PI has mastered the art of baiting the subjects of his investigations. The most recent victims of Anas video 2018 were officials of GFA in the documentary, Number 12 which aired on BBC. His tactics involve going undercover to offer bribes to the culprits in question and recording the entire exchange in detail to have irrefutable proof. It is likely that the culprits this time will be the traffickers. It is hard to accurately predict what means he will use or who Anas’ investigators will be posing as to trap the child traffickers.
Expect a lot of surprises, the bad kind, as Anas expose videos shows the most unexpected people in society to be some of the most corrupt. In one of his exposes, more than 100 judicial officials were probed for corruption cases after accepting some form of bribery to influence the outcomes of cases. The latest video will definitely implicate people that have decided to turn a blind eye to corruption or through corruption and by doing so have facilitated child trafficking.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas new documentary will provide better insight, an accurate look at how children are robbed of their childhood and chained by begging on the streets of most towns and urban centers by adults. These children are not all - as some would assume – running away from home or orphaned, it is possible that they are puppets whose strings are pulled by people who betrayed their trust thrusting them to a life of poverty. Be sure to keep an eye on the latest news about the new expose coming this month. The latest Anas expose is sponsored by the European Union And OAfrica.
