Ghana and Africa’s most feared investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has openly stated that he still doesn’t get it why he is still alive because he should have been dead by now because of the work he does.
Anas made this comment when speaking with the latest edition ‘Politics & Power’ magazine, revealed that for past 20 years, he has not shown his face publicly, because the security implications are dire, every day.
According to him, every time he steps out for an investigative work his life is on the line but that does not deter him from going underneath to unravel what has been hidden from the masses by the ‘bad guys’ the public deserve to know.
He added that he must live to tell the next story adding that no story is worth a journalist’s life.Speaking on his most dangerous undercover job, he said: “I don’t know why I’m alive today. I’m being honest with you. I should have died” in reference to a piece on human harvesting in Malawi, aired on the BBC mid-August.
