Anas Aremeyaw’s work often leads to massive fallout. In 2015, Anas’s look into the judiciary of Ghana led to the removal of 13 high court judges, 20 lower court judges and 19 Judicial Service court registrars and interpreters as well as the probes of over 100 judicial service staff. His latest work, an expose on corruption’s place in African football has led to the disarray in the world of Ghanaian football.
Showing how bribes were being taken from linesmen and referees and went as far as up as the Kwasi Nyantakyi, the President of the Ghana Football Association, the documentary is a perfect look into the damage of the integrity of the game.
In terms of fallout, it has led Nyantakyi to resign from his position after being implicated for taking a $65,000 bribe to guarantee a sponsorship deal, an encounter that was documented in Anas’ documentary.
Additionally, the High Court of Ghana has just granted the request of Ghana’s attorney general Gloria Akuffo to suspend the Ghana Football Association.
