#12 Gets 2018 Best Pick By Global Investigative Network

The most controversial and much talked about investigative expose’ into African football,

“Number 12” produced by Africa’s most revered undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas

continues to make the headlines across the world.

Since it was premiered in Ghana on June 6th, 2018, the over two years of painstaking

investigative piece, which exposed massive corruption in football, culminating in the

resignation of the President of the Ghana Football Association Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi from office

after he was captured receiving $65,000 from undercover journalist posing as a businessman,

has  continued to gain recognition.

The latest institution to recognize the impact of “Number 12” is the Global Investigative

Journalism Network, GIJN.

The GIJN which is an international association of journalism

organizations that support the training and sharing of information among investigative and

data journalists—even in repressive regimes and marginalized communities, named “Number

12” among best investigative stories that made the headlines in its “Editor’s Pick” series for the

year 2018 under review.


Editor of the GIJN, Raymond Mpubani compiling the “Editor’s Pick Series for 2018, noted that,

“in January, the Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas hinted about a story that would

reveal secrets about some respected officials. The undercover reporter’s investigations usually

become the talk of the country, and many waited with anticipation”.

Mr. Mpubani added that, “but this time, the focus was not just Ghana.

The documentary, in partnership with the BBC’s Africa Eye, was released in June and

revealed that across the continent; nearly 100 football referees and officials were

filmed taking cash bribes ahead of important matches”.

According to him the massive impact of “Number12” and its relevance, stems from the

fact that “the two-year undercover investigation featured jaw-dropping scenes, including

recordings of a Kenyan World Cup-bound referee accepting $600 from a reporter acting as a

football association representative, and the top Ghanaian football official accepting $65,000

from a reporter posing as a businessman.

The team also showed how a referee who had accepted$700 from

a Ghanaian team “official” awarded a disputed penalty during an

African Champions League game in that team’s favor”.

The GIJN editor recounted that, “the president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi

Nyantakyi, however, resigned following the exposé, even as he denied any wrongdoing.

The international football governing body FIFA also temporarily suspended him for 135

days and launched an investigation into allegations in the documentary.

The Confederation of African Football also suspended a number of referees and Ghana’s

referee association issued eight-lifetime bans and 53 10-year bans”.

Since its inception in 2012, the GIJN is growing in huge numbers with 1200 attendees from

a record 130 countries at its last conference.

It also runs a highly competitive fellowship program to bring journalists from developing and

transitioning countries, and assist in regional workshops and conferences around the world.

‘Anas’ Meets With Countryman Songo

Anas Aremeyaw Anas is not a name that trends for long, but when he begins to do so, then there’s a fire on the mountain.

The ace investigative Journalist has once again accomplished successfully another hectic task of exposing some corrupt leaders.

This time round, his cameras landed on some officials at the Ghana Football Association(GFA).

However, before Anas gave us hint of his work, Countryman Songo, who was a presenter at Adom TV, host of ‘Fire for Fire’ show had earlier given a gist of some of the corruptions taken place at the GFA.

But as usual, since he couldn’t back his claims with concrete evidences, the matter was laid to rest as always.

He was sacked at Multimedia Group because he was accused of “opening” too much fire on the GFA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Songo during his days as host of ‘Fire for Fire’, severely criticized Nyantakyi for being corrupt. According to him, Nyantakyi has added nothing better to Ghana Football, but only “chopping” money “nyafunyafu”.

He also alleged that Nyantakyi was to blame for the poor performance of the Ghana Premier League which seems to be defunct.

Countryman made many other allegations against Nyantakyi, which infuriated him to slap Songo and Multimedia with a heavy legal suit. However, Multimedia intervened to have Nyantakyi drop the legal suit, and later sacked Songo as host.

But Songo seems to be vindicated with the latest exposé on the GFA.

A rare Photo of Anas meeting with Countryman Songo, reportedly, for the first time has gone viral on social media. The picture was spotted on the Facebook page of Kasapa FM.

Countryman Songo was captured with all smiles as he enjoys a handshake with Anas who as usual, has his face covered.

It is not clear the agenda for their meeting. However, many believe that the two met to congratulate each other on the work they have both done.

Thus, to expose the corruption in the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Where Countryman Songo failed, Anas, obviously succeeded.

PHOTOS: Alleged Leaked Photos Of Anas Real Face

Social media has gone haywire with some ‘leaked’ photos of a handsome gentleman purported to be that of the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

The photos ‘leaked’ just at the same time as maverick MP,  Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong  threatened to ‘expose’ Anas.

With the upcoming release of Anas’ epxose on football and politics dubbed ‘Number 12’, Agyapong has gone on the offensive against the journalist, calling him corrupt.

Kennedy Agyapong believes Anas lures and seduces his victims with big money and thereafter disgraces them in public. He also claims Anas is using this method to blackmail people who fall into his trap for financial gain.

He therefore threatened to ‘expose’ him, to the extent of saying he will reveal his real face for the whole world to see.

Overnight some photos have gone viral alleged to be that of Anas. However, nothing has been confirmed, either from Anas’ camp or Kennedy Agyapong’s.
