The latest exposé by renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, titled “Galamsey Economy,” has drawn criticism for being inaccurate and hollow from a number of Ghanaians.

The documentary was screened Monday night at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), and online viewers who were there expressed unhappiness with the subject matter, stating it didn’t live up to their expectations.

The galamsey issue, which has had and is continuing to have a terrible impact on the nation’s water bodies and forest reserves, was supposed to be the subject of extensive undercover investigations in the film, but none of that was depicted.

“But seriously we black people have problems oo.. so how comfortably people sitting with this guys that nobody knows their identity n saying they fighting corruption in Ghana and spending thousands of dollars just to make setup videos.. and we think they are genuine,” BetMonster @betmonst tweeted.

Richard K.B. Eyiah, a different Twitter account, also posted “Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Galamsey Economy Expose” on his handle. Although I believe he and his staff are succeeding, I continue to believe that there are moral problems.”

Another person also tweeted: “If you decide to give an officer/anybody money (i.e without the person making any initial demands or solicitation) after talking with him/her I wonder if that will qualify for corruption. Suffice it to say that it was even an ‘inducement’ to facilitate a legitimate process; aren’t both the giver and receiver candidates of a crime? #LordHaveMercy.”

Meanwhile, Ghana_MyMotherLand  also tweeted as follows: “We watch movie and see how undercover is done. A rot is happening journalist plant their men in the middle of the rot to catch the perpetrators. You won’t see obroni creating his own scene and come and tell us that he is doing undercover. #anasgalamseyeconomy #PayToPlay.”
