Ghanaians on social media have reacted to the exposé by undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas which seeks to unravel how some people are cashing in on COVID-19.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas in his latest documentary showed how two staff of Greater Accra Regional Hospital, popularly known as Ridge Hospital, sold Personal Protective Equipment for their personal profit.

According to him, the two men (Divine Kumordzi and Thomas Osei) caught in the video were selling PPEs meant for frontline workers.

Management of Ridge Hospital in a statement said the items sold by the two were not hospital stuff but their own private thing.

However, their actions breached the Ghana Health Service’s code of conduct leading to their two-weeks suspension with no salary.

“Even though these items do not belong to the hospital and does not also constitute the hospital’s COVID-19 stock, either donated or procured, their action constitute a breach of the Ghana Health Service Code of Conduct,” part of the statement read.

But Ghanaians reacting on social media said investigative journalist Anas changed the narrative of the documentary and made it seem the people captured in the video were selling PPEs provided by government to health workers.

A social media user said Anas’ works are increasingly becoming mediocre, distorting and malicious in nature.

One other person said he sees no wrong with what the two men did since it’s their personal business and not selling PPEs meant for the hospital as portrayed.
