Video: Watch Anas’ Investigation That Exposed Huge Bribery Scandal In Ghanaian Football


Ghana has dissolved its national football association after its president was filmed apparently accepting a “cash gift”.

Kwesi Nyantakyi was pictured taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman keen to invest in Ghanaian football.
The video, which revealed various corruption and underhand activities of top Ghana Football Association officials and referees, has thrown the football governing body into disarray. 

FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi appears to be the hardest hit, having resigned from office after being caught on camera engaging in the shady deals.

Not only has he been provisionally banned by Fifa from all football activities for 90 days, Nyantakyi also faces imprisonment as he has been put under police investigation on orders of Ghana president Nana Akufo-Addo for a charge of “defrauding under false pretences”.

In the film, Mr Nyantakyi went on to both negotiate and write up the sponsorship deal on behalf of the GFA, which could have allowed a cut to go to a company he owned.


Who is Anas Aremeyaw Anas – the brain behind the staggering exposé?
Anas is a Ghanaian undercover journalist believed to be born in the late 1970s.
A man synonymous to mystery, he focuses on issues of human rights and anti-corruption in Ghana and sub-Saharan Africa.
In his words, “in our part of the world, sometimes simply gathering information is not enough. You need to back it up with hard core evidence and this is what I do.”

For former US president Barrack Obama, Anas is “a courageous journalist who risked his life to tell the truth”, while Microsoft founder Bill Gates describes him as “an undercover journalist who tells troubling but truthful stories in support of social justice in Africa”.

The name “Anas Aremeyaw Anas” is just a pseudonym. Aside from that, no one has ever seen his face apart from his family and people who knew him before his work took off. 

During a BBC interview in 2015, he publicly unmasked his face for the first time. However, the revelation showed only a prosthetic. 

To him, anonymity is “in fact an important tool in his investigations”.

Anas’ works have always turned up to be explosive and shocking.
