FKF not shaken as journalist plans to release corruption exposé
Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw is set to release another exposé on corruption in sports, a move certain to leave football administrators in Africa jittery.
This was announced by the BBC via social media on Wednesday.
“We are currently working with Anas on a new project,” the message read in part.
It is the BBC that first aired Anas’s explosive exposé in June titled ‘Betraying the Game‘.
It exposed rot in the technical and management departments of African football and left behind several high profile casualties, including Confederation of African Football Vice President Kwesi Nyantakyi and Kenyan referee Aden Marwa.
RECEIVING SH6M BRIBE
Nyatankyi was forced to resign from both his role as Caf and Ghana Football Association boss in the aftermath of the exposé. He was filmed receiving a Sh6 million bribe in dollar bills.
Kenyan referee Marwa was captured receiving a Sh60,000 gift and as a result was barred from officiating at the 2018 Fifa World Cup and banned for life by Caf.
“We have nothing to be worried about (if Anas releases another expose),” Football Kenya Federation spokesperson Barry Otieno told Nairobi News.
The BBC has meanwhile also backed Anas after he was critiqued for the way he does his work. The journalist from Ghana is renowned for hiding his identity from the public.
