'Photos of Anas finally released by Hon. Kennedy Agyapong'- Fallacy and ignorance (1)

Kennedy Agyapong has released some photos purported to be that of Ace Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas

Maverick Politician , businessman and self-acclaimed anti- corruption campaigner, Kennedy Agyapong has reportedly released six images of ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

I agree with those who say Anas’ true identity cannot be independently verified if indeed the pictures making round on social media are those of the ace journalist as he uses 150 prosthetics to conceal his true identity in the course of undercover operations.

One can confirm with certainty that the Honourable MP was at his usual “hooting and honking”, beating his chest with vim and vigor as the veins around his neck were fully puffed up with blood on Tuesday’s bedwam show on Adom TV. While Uncle Allotey was as always in his teasing mood.

The MP was as well sweating in an air-conditioned room throwing his handkerchief on the table. Even though he may claim to know some assets of the ace investigative journalist, that does not erode the issue at hand. Anas with all valour and candour has the right to own properties either alone or with others.

Article 18 (1) of the Ghana’s Constitution states “ Every person has the right to own property either alone or in association with other” and 18(2)………” No person shall be subjected to interference with the privacy of his home, property, correspondence or communication except in accordance with law and as may be necessary in a free and democratic society for public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the protection of health or morals, for the prevention of disorder or crime or for the protection of the rights or freedoms of others.

I tend to agree with Uncle Kweku that “…………..all those allegations of Tax Evasions, Land ligations questioning Law Degree, describing Anas as corrupt, evil extortionist, blackmailer and a thief are nothing but a fallacy.”

In any case , has the Hon. MP told us how he acquired his properties or has somebody ever questioned how he acquired them. On the same platform, the MP whist beating his chest with vim and vigor like the beating of Fontonfron drums on Ahwesidae at the Manhyia Palace and banging on the table, said in Akan “………this Nyantakyi talks too much. He led some investors to the Presidency at the time the President was about to travel to Kumasi.

He introduced them to the President as investors connected to the Emir of Qatar. The President told them he was travelling to Kumasi. The president did not meet them to hear from them. There was no point Nyantakyi led some investors to meet the President.” The MP was on tape to have also said that Nyantakyi described him in the video as one of his boys who can connect him to the Presidency.

In another breath, he denied knowing Nyantakyi and also claimed he had never met him until recently when he (Nyantakyi) was telling him his side of the story. Since when did the so-called anti-corruption campaigner became an advocate and the Director of Criminal Investigations of the Ghana Police Service.?

The MP with all respect appeared to acting ultra- vires to his assertion that he is acting in the supreme interest of the people of Ghana. Which Ghanaian called on him to act in his/her interest? For Kwesi Nyantakyi, the call to probe the FA was long overdue. Was the MP in this country when Kwesi Nyantakyi appeared before the Justice Senyo Dzamefe’s Commission. Did he listen to interviews granted by Hon Alex Agyekum.

He should go and listen to the comments by Hon Annor Dompre when he appeared on that same Bedwam show with the popular host, Kwabena Asante. Where was he when Hon Nii Lante Vanderpuye, the erstwhile Sports Minister told the whole nation that he refused a bribe from the FA.

Yes I agree with those who say the modus operandi of Anas is illegal as ruled on by the Supreme Court of Ghana. Must we not consider the “ relevance and contents?” He may go to court place injunction on the premiering of the video but Aljazeera and BBC will show it.

I have equally had the opportunity to watch the pictures put out on NET 2 TV, by the MP claiming they are those of Anas and had become a “hot-cake” on social media platforms. Let me admit that I have never set my eyes on Anas Knowingly or unknowingly but I agree with Uncle Kweku that those pictures in the public domain alleged to have been put out by the MP is not the true and accurate picture of the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

My research on the picture led to the picture of a Brazilian Footballer who plies his trade with Feroviarra. He is a right- wing-back/ right-full-back. He was born on the 4th of March 1994. He is 1.75cm(5 ft 9inch) tall. In 2011, he played for Mirrasol and for Tarrabi in 2012.

He was loaned out to Boa Esporte in 2015 and onward to Kashiwa Reysol in the Japanese league. His name is PATRICK MARCELINO.

1 down, 59 more to go, I cant wait come june 6,7,8,and 9.

The Hon. MP should give us a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
