Anas makes his stance clear. Hon. Kennedy Agyapong premiered his own investigative piece called “Who Watches The Watchman?”. Furthermore, it was on air during the week at the forecourt of Ken City.
Moreover, the documentary made damning allegations against Anas Aremeyaw Anas. Therefore, he went on UTV to clear the air on some of the allegations.
Also, the host asked about claims that he had received an offer of $100,000 from Kwasi Nyantakyi to drop the story.
Anas on taking bribes and cost of doing his work
“I have said that he who alleges must prove it. I mean I can’t see why anybody would not want to mention a third party who I have sent. I have told those who are making those claims. As for me, I have never, and please mark the word, NEVER taken bribe from anybody in respect of either Kwasi Nyantayi or any other story I have done in my entire life.
You know what that means to me, if I’m found culpable of taking bribe? It means I will lose all the jobs I do across the world. I have to be smart enough. How much is that money compared to the money I make when I work outside? So nobody in his right sense will risk it. I have said if they think I have given money to a third party it is up to them, let them mention the name.
It’s fair, and that’s why I have already taken some people to court, to prove those allegations. This is a law-governed society. You don’t just go about talking. You supply people with the needed evidence so that we can move forward as a nation. This country cannot be moving only based on rumors.”
