Anas And Kweku Baako Are Lying To Ghanaians — BBC

2 min



An email sent by the BBC to the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) seems to implicate Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his boss Kweku Baako in a scheme to lie to or at the very least mislead Ghanaians.
Since the release of ‘Number 12’, Kweku Baako has said a couple of times that Anas partnered the BBC for the documentary and it has been an accepted truism.
He once said in response to a planned injunction on the case that that would be an exercise in futility since the BBC would also broadcast the documentary.
The MFWA wrote to the BBC on clarification of whether they partnered Tiger Eye for the documentary and the BBC denied that, revealing instead that they did their own report on Anas’ exposé.

“Contrary to any reports or rumours you may have heard or seen prior to publication stating ‘Number 12′ was a product of a collaborative work by the BBC and the journalist (Anas Aremeyaw Anas) this was not the case,” the BBC revealed.
“The BBC documentary, ‘Betraying the Game’, broadcast after ‘Number 12’ was first put into the public domain, was an independent and impartial work and a report about Mr Anas’ investigation.
“The BBC played no part whatsoever in his investigation and has never sought to suggest otherwise.
“Mr Anas is not a BBC journalist, we did not work with him during his investigation or commission him to carry out this investigation.” it added.
