The next show by Anas will not be for politicians - Sammy Darko

Anas Aremeyaw Anas


Sammy Darko, one of Anas' lawyers for investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw, has revealed that his client's further investigation reveals that the so-called "caching in on covid" is not about politicians or public figures.

He explained that since 2020 is an election year for Ghana, Anas would not be willing to produce any work that would change the way elections go.

"Political parties must compete on the basis of their own records and public opinion [voting] before and during an election year. So yes, I hope his [Anas] Health COVID-19 related stories will expose high-level individuals, politicians and the general public. This is not about them, ”read a post on Sammy Darko's Facebook timeline.


He noted that the expectations of Anas large exposure were often good and challenging. Good because people have high expectations on his work, he is the best to spread corruption in high places. “Human-interest stories ranging from health and safety to social phenomena are not appreciated by those with adrenaline in the wild.

“But these kinds of stories should be wild [...] it's about your health, your security, your social issues. He can’t and shouldn’t stop doing such stories. "

Some naysayers often point out that "now people are not in the queue to see his exposures" as Sammy Darko says, "It takes years for Anas and his team to investigate what is kept for public viewing [...] at least 2 to 3 years.


Such stories, once produced, for example, also known as the “Ghana in the eyes of God” judge scandal, were produced in 2015 and “Number 12” in 2018.


“So yes, his team works towards a big story for public viewing, it takes more time to investigate, then there are simple stories, they take less than a year to produce. Regular stories are never shown for public viewing but are shown on national television as well as on international channels such as the BBC and Al Jazeera. "


Anas Aremeyaw Anas' latest research piece ‘Caching in on covid’ will deal with how some people are exploiting the global pandemic and making a profit by selling personal protective equipment (PPE).


This is the second investigative part of Anas to be aired since the country registered the first two cases of the coronavirus novel in March. Anas Aremeyaw Anas in his first investigation revealed how some quacks and thieves used COVID-19 as an excuse to milk the Ghanaians.


Corona Quacks, in collaboration with the BBC Africa Eye team, focuses on the Ghanaian government's fight against the coronavirus and how some individuals are drying up Ghanaians.


‘Cashing in on covid’ will air on Monday 10th August 2020.
