A story emerging has revealed that, British Broadcasting Corporation has acted in bad faith in its relationship with a Ghanaian ace journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye Group. The corporation rejected his proposal to investigating corruptions in UK’s national institutions.
A source within the Tiger Eye group told thepeoplesnewsafrica.com that, after Anas Aremeyaw Anas had provided financial and technical assistance to the celebrated broadcasting corporation which targeted and exposed personalities and institutions in Africa of corruption, Anas Aremeyaw Anas later proposed to the BBC to offer him the same support to run his test through some UK national institutions to see if he can find evidences of corruption.
Some of the institutions and cases in his proposal were: Do the UK political class (leaders and politicians) influence/facilitate, or benefit from the continuous looting of Africa’s resources?; corruption and match fixing in the English Premier League; and racial abuses in UK’s universities (focusing on lecturers and university authorities)
However, the under cover journalist was disapointed as BBC out rightly rejected this proposal. They stated that, such exposé will not be in the interest of the BBC and that of the UK.
This has however created a sore relationship between the two partners. Anas Aremeyaw Anas refused to take a leading role or even participate in BBC Africa’s recent ‘Sex for Grade’ documentary in Ghana and Nigeria.
Does this mean BBC is only interested in painting Africa black?
