An award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas is set to release another shocking investigative piece on City guards and how their work has caused some businesses in the country to collapse.
The investigative piece is titled ‘Aba-yee’ to wit “They are coming or the city guards are coming”.
The titled of the piece is believed to be drawn from the outcry of some traders to alert their colleagues when they set eyes on the City guards coming to either confiscate items or destroy them.
A promotional video has been posted on Anas’ official website jesusisanas.org.
In the video, one could see the City guards going about their activities destroying properties and in some instances taking bribes to allow traders to sell on pavements supposed to be the walking path of pedestrians.
Also in the promotional video, one could see helpless victims caught by City guards pleading for mercy while others also shed tears so that their goods are not ceased or destroyed.
The video is accompanied by a test that critizes the actions and inactions of the City guards which has collapsed businesses and shattered dreams.
“They are meant to maintain law and order in the central business district…They unleash fear on the vulnerable and poor.”
“Lives have been lost, businesses closed, dreams shattered… They look like order but they have a secret. Stealing from Mother Ghana, putting cash in their pocket.”
City guards ensure law and order in various district assemblies and also help in taking Market tolls.
