In a glittering ceremony, which was attended by some of the world’s high-profile names in the sports industry, top-notch journalists, Aremeyaw Anas received the ‘Investigative Reporting’ award for the bombshell report on African football corruption.

Anas, who attended the plush event APIS Sports Media Awards at Lausanne’s Beau-Rivage Palace, Laussane Switzerland, dedicated his personal success to the memory of the late Ahmed Hussein-Suale and all who fought to uncover the truth.

« I receive this award in honour of my colleague, Ahmed. I know he would have been here with me to receive this award if not for the unfortunate incident. But we will never surrender, because journalism is not a crime, » Anas said, after receiving his trophy.

Last year, in May, Hussein-Suale helped expose corruption in African football as a prominent member of Anas’ Tiger Eye Private Investigations team.

The revelations led to the resignation of the head of Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, after he was filmed accepting bribes.
