Ghana’s ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has been predicting the future of his undercover exploits.
He predicts he could soon be hit by the difficult challenge ever of his undercover journalism exploits.
“When I look back into the pot, it is very difficult to look and say that; may be I think my difficult challenge is yet to come. But I can see what is coming. You can’t see it but I can see it. And I think it is coming”. Anas told his audience.
He will however not go public on details of his “difficult challenge”, which he describes as not being nice.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas is one of 50 speakers at this year’s Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Lillehammer, Norway.
He tells his audience, which includes a former Minister of State in Ghana, Elizabeth Ohene, he is prepared to face that bleak future.
An emotionally charged Anas says he is the only one who sees the future.
“It [future] is not nice. I can only tell you that it is not nice”. He said in feeble voice.
Anas’ latest corruption exposé in the Ghanaian judiciary has led to the suspension of seven high court judges, whilst 26 other lower court judges and 147 judicial service staff are being probed.
Remaining anonymous over the years has been the greatest tool of Anas and his private investigative team, Tiger Eye.
Quizzed by his audience on how he maintains and preserve his anonymity, Anas said he is hoping to maintain the status quo to bring the needed impact before he is unveiled one day.
“There are hazards in the professions we take. The hazard is there. You can only remain anonymous for a while.
But as you are anonymous, make sure you put your time to good use and you do the right stories to make sure you have the right impact”.
The undercover journalist whose exploits has won him several local and international awards.
For Anas, there is more work to be done in Africa especially Ghana before he retires.
“Ghana is a country of 27 million [people]. At least if 1 million have seen me; I still have 26 [million people]. Nigeria is about 180 million [people] and if I have done 2 million in Nigeria, I have 178 million waiting. So there is a lot of work to be done so if we are unveiled one day, we are unveiled. But that will not kill the spirit. We have to persevere”. Anas told his audience in Lillehammer.
