He explained that instead of hailing Anas, the investigative journalist has been rendered an “outcast” by his own people.

“When we had the chance, we made an outcast of our own allowing our rivals to recognise the true worth and offer him [Anas Aremeyaw Anas] such a sensitive national anti-corruption role. What does that make of us?” the NDC founder said whiles delivering a speech at the 39th-anniversary durbar to mark the June 4 uprising in Accra.

Rawlings’ comments come following a series of attacks on Anas in the wake of his latest exposé titled ‘Number 12’.

The Tiger Eye PI member has come in for strong criticisms, with MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong leading the charge.

The outspoken lawmaker has persistently accused Anas of being “evil” and “corrupt”, whiles also criticizing his mode of operation.

According to the legislator, Anas uses entrapment and enticement to cajole his victims into falling foul.
