Kweku Baako and Anas pleading with my key witnesses to recant- Kennedy Agyapong

Member of Parliament for Assin Central Honourable Kennedy Agyapong has accused journalists’ Kweku Baako and Anas Aremeyaw Anas of going to see his key witness not to show up.

According to the loudmouth politician, the two people are very afraid of his ‘Who Watches the Watchman’ exposé and have resorted to behind-the-scenes negotiation.

“Why is Kwaku Baako going around begging them?” He asked.

He pointed out that even if they succeed in getting all ‘his people’ to change their stories, ‘I have their voice and videos on record’, he boasted.

Kennedy Agyapong has earlier stated emphatically that investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, cannot silence him with his lawsuit.

According to Mr. Agyapong, no amount of lawsuits will stop him from exposing Anas whom he has described as “evil,” “corrupt” and a “blackmailer.”

Speaking last Monday on Asempa FM’s political programme, Ekosii Sen, Mr. Agyapong, said he would gladly pay the GHc25 million if the court finds him guilty.

“I will say more because I’m not scared of the court. And let me tell you, if the court finds me guilty, I will pay Ghc25 million and it will not affect me,” he added.

Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas sued Kennedy Agyapong last week for defamation.

He is demanding GH¢25 million in damages from the vociferous MP who recently launched a fierce campaign against Anas’ mode of operation.

Kennedy Agyapong in series of media interviews ahead of the premiere of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ exposé on corruption in football, dubbed “Number12” accused Anas of entrapping persons captured in the investigative film.

He described Anas as very corrupt and alleged that he was fond of taking bribes to exempt some persons he captures in his investigative films.

When asked on Ekosii Sen his challenge with Anas, Mr. Agyapong said: “My interest is justice for everybody, and the truth must be told that Anas who was able to set up somebody is corrupt and takes higher bribes.”

“My interest is that, firstly, his procedures are wrong. Secondly, Anas, who is investigating others should first investigate himself because he is more corrupt than anybody he has exposed. If Kwesi Nyantaky took $65,000, Anas takes $100,000,” Agyapong added.

The MP also said that no member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) which he belongs to can stop him from backtracking.

Agyapong said he will expose anybody who tries to prevent him from taking on Anas and any other journalist he feels is corrupt.

“If anybody who tries to discredit me, if I have any information about you, I will blow your cover. I respect NPP folks, but no NPP member can stop me from exposing these and evil corrupt journalists that are parading themselves as honest people,” he added.
