- Kennedy Agyapong has slammed a BBC reporter for asking him “rubbish questions” about Ahmed’s death
- The reporter had asked if he contributed in any way to the unfortunate death of the investigative journalist
- Agyapong said the BBC is “cheapening” journalism because they are allowing Anas to 'use' them
Outspoken Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has slammed a BBC reporter for asking him what he described as “rubbish questions”.
The reporter, Thomas Naadi, according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb.com, asked Agyapong if he had a hand in Ahmed’s death.
However, feeling angered by the question, Agyapong told the reporter directly that his question was 'rubbish' and that he should ask him intelligent questions.
The reporter then made a quick u-turn and asked Agyapong what message he had for the bereaved family.
He reportedly answered: “Good. I sympathized with them and it’s unfortunate.”
Agyapong is noted for his outspokenness to the extent of fighting publicly in Ghana.
However, not many people thought that he could carry out that attitude outside the shores of the country.
He had earlier accused the BBC of cheapening journalism because it allowed Anas Aremeyaw Anas to influence it.
He compared the BBC to CNN, emphasizing that the former lacked professionalism.
“They (BBC) are foolish. They are cheapening journalism because they are using Anas’ false information.” Agyapong fumed.
“Look at how CNN broadcasts their news and look at how BBC also broadcasts theirs. As for BBC, they are cheapening themselves because they are using information from Anas,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, Ken Agyapong has said Anas was a suspect of the murder and must be arrested.
In a more recent development, Anas has reportedly been invited by the police for questioning over the death of his colleague, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
