"He who is without sin, let them throw the first stone," Kwesi Pratt, Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper stated emphatically on Peace FM's Kokrokoo, in reaction to scathing attacks by some Ghanaians on members of the judiciary following the recent Anas exposé.

Commenting on Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI investigative team's shocking disclosure about corruption in the judicial service, Kwesi Pratt called for a complete change of attitude towards the canker.

According to him, corruption is not only the preserve of the judicial service but rather a societal problem.

He noted that even in schools, churches and other places in the society; corruption has become the order of life.

We need to review our standards. We need to review our morality and ethics. Overhaul the whole society…We have accorded money some respect that it encourages corruption…Even as we find what has happened terrible and so on, even as we have a sense of revulsion at what has happened; we should question the values of our society and our practices in society. Because of these judges, they’re products of society.

To Seasoned Editor, Anas' exposé should be a wake-up call to every Ghanaian and not just the judges in the country.

He who is without sin, let them throw the first stone. We need to change our society. We need to fight against corruption. We need to improve our systems and so on but we must do it well. Maybe this Anas’ exposé is a wake-up call to all of us, a wake-up call to all of our institutions and so on."

"...Don’t let us make it look that corruption among judges is far worse than corruption in the executive or far worse than corruption in the legislator and so on…Corruption is corruption. It does not matter whether it is happening in the judiciary or it’s happening in the executive. Every corruption is corruption.
