Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. has challenged the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong to produce any tape or evidence he has on ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas instead of his constant ranting on the airwaves.
Speaking on Peace FM's 'kokrokoo' programme Friday, Kwesi Pratt asked the Assin Central MP to stop the personal attacks and focus on the professional works of the ace investigative journalist.
He said the MP can not substantiate his claims on the journalist if Anas takes him to court to battle the personal allegations.
"Nothing prevents any Ghanian from doing the work Anas is doing . . . anybody at all can do same . . . why can't Ken Agyapong do the same thing about him (Anas)?" he asked.
Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong had alleged that Anas and the late NPP Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu's wife, Ivy Heward Mills are in an amorous relationship.
The honorable MP, in his desperate attempt to frustrate the ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team from premiering their latest expose, dubbed, “Number 12” has made a lot of allegations.
Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has also sworn to show a video of investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas receiving bribe.
The MP vowed he has in his possession a tape capturing the investigative journalist taking a bribe of $100,000 from people.
Speaking on Accra based Okay FM, he dared God to strike him dead should he fail to show such video to Ghanaians, describing Anas as a "blackmailer".
“I will show Anas confessing to a state Attorney that he has taken $100,000 bribe, if I don’t show may the living God kill me.
“Anas is so corrupt and we will not allow him to destroy the state with his evil mind. Let Anas premiere his (investigative video on the June 6), I will also premiere my video titled 'who watches the watchman'. He should be ready,” he stated.
Kennedy Agyapong has also accused Anas of plundering properties through illegal means to enrich himself.
All the evidence, he insists, will be made blare to public eye.
“I’m very sad and hurt that Ghanaians believe this evil man so much. I will expose him (Anas) and he will regret being a Ghanaian and a corrupt man. You take bribes from people and then you turn around to accuse people,” he added.
Commenting on the claims by Kennedy Agyapong regarding the undercover journalist, seasoned journalist Kwesi Pratt has challenged Mr. Agyapong to provide the said evidence.
According to him, if the MP indeed has a smoking gun on the activities of Anas, he shouldn't just be talking but prove it to the whole world.
“He should produce the evidence if he has it . . . after watching it the law will be applied,” he told Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's 'kokrokoo' programme.
