Who Born Dog: We Still Remember The Exposure Of Corrupt Judges - By The Brilliant Anas Amereyaw Anas

Who Born Dog: We Still Remember The Exposure Of Corrupt Judges - By The Brilliant Anas Amereyaw Anas
LISTEN FEB 28, 2021

One finds it hard to believe that the unfortunate statements, said to have come from the Judicial Service - and apparently said to have been aimed at the Ghanaian media, are genuine. Massa, no one in Ghanaian officialdom, is beyond criticism, by the public, ooooo. Yooooooo...

Full stop. Case closed. As it happens, we all remember the shabby case of a number of corrupt judges, exposed by the brilliant investigative journalist, Anas Amereyaw Anas, ooooo. Who born dog, Massa? Yooooooo...
