The Director of Research at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) Dr John Kwakye has told investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas not to set people up to commit crimes. Dr Kwakye says setting people up to commit a crime is unacceptable and should be condemned.
His comments come after Anas said that he would be releasing a documentary on corruption in Ghana before the 2024 general elections. Anas said this exposé will shake the foundation of the country.
He said these while answering questions in an interview on DW Africa on whether he was a ‘terrorist’ as was recently said by a High Court judge. Anas defended his methods and talked about corruption in Africa.
He said “The work that I am doing now might be the last before we get into the  elections. But already the signs are very clear and I can tell you that the foundation would be shaken once again.”
“There are a couple of international ones that are about to be released. But this one, talking to you as a Ghanaian, I mean the foundation of Ghana would be shaken,” he is quoted to have said.
Commenting on this in a tweet, Dr Kwakye said “If Anas isn’t interested in cashing in on the elections, he should wait to publish his documentary after not before.
“Anas shouldn’t think that he can hold the whole country to ransom. No one is without blemish in this world. He himself isn’t an angel. Anas should work to catch people who commit actual crimes. He shouldn’t set people up to commit crimes. That’s unacceptable and should be condemned.
