Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has entered into a partnership with Sweden-based technology and data platform provider, Klarity, to combat corruption.
As part of the partnership, Klarity has launched a website, JeSuisAnas.org, which will serve as a platform for people to expose corrupt acts in society.
The website will afford Ghanaians and other patrons globally, the opportunity to record and upload videos of everyday corruption that they come across.
The JeSuisAnas.org platform has over 100 videos from Anas’ latest work on exposing corruption in Ghana football uploaded.
Speaking at a short ceremony, Anas expressed excitement at the partnership with Kalrity, insisting it will help fight corruption in Ghana and beyond.
“We are very excited to be working with Klarity. After many years of working as an investigative journalist and with the Tiger Eye Foundation, I have witnessed the difficulty of exposing corruption first hand. This platform will allow us to expose not only grand corruption but also petty corruption in a safer way and help mobilise civil society to increase accountability on public institutions,” he stated.
The Swedish data platform provider will provide the technological infrastructure and digital tools for Ghanaians to upload any corruption video they come across.
Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team will in turn serve as editors, mobilise and encourage activists to share more content and all forms of human right abuses on the platform.
The CEO of Klarity, Eliza Kucukaslan said the initiative could be extended globally depending on how successful it turns out.

“We want to encourage the spread of democracy around the world, based on strong, transparent and well-functioning institutions that citizens can trust. Anas and Tiger Eye bring a deep and thorough understanding of activism and journalism to the table, while we provide the tools to engage citizens en masse and multiply their impact,” she said.
“We will continue to build partnerships with prominent organisations as we expand Klarity into new countries.”
