Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas is set to release another documentary in the month of August.
The short video is focused on illegal child beggars on the streets of Ghana.
The project which is in collaboration with OAfrica under the #KidsOurFuture campaign is aimed at highlighting child trafficking, children in the alms begging business and some of the abuses such children are subjected to.
Anas recently released an incriminating video which shook the very foundation of Ghana’s football leading to its dissolution by the government of Ghana.
The new exposè which is yet to be released has music by dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy and is expected to be shown on all major TV networks across the country in August.
“My heart is touched by the plight of little children when I see them begging by the roadside,” Anas said in the promotional video for the documentary.
He noted that the number of street children is increasing by the day and that “they give a poor image of our country”.
“It was observed that children were trafficked by adults and used for business. Children are denied of their right to education, good health, nutrition, protection and choices and do dangerous work for the benefit of the traffickers, who buy and sell them across borders with impunity,” he added.
The ten-minute film is dubbed “Chained by Begging.”
