- The referees have been cited for professional misconduct
Some 15 Ghanaian referees have reportedly been captured taking bribes in the latest exposé of award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
According to a MyNewsGh report, the referees, some of whom took as little as GH¢100 to influence the outcomes of some league games in the country, have been cited for professional misconduct.
They are expected to respond to corruption allegations following the undercover investigative piece by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Referees Association of Ghana has since written to the affected referees which include, James Osafo, Jason Nunoo, Kennedy Bentil, Adams Badiu, Alhassan Badiu, Safi Adade, Samuel Sukah and Kyereme Yeboah.
The rest are Cecil Flecther, Nathan Anafo, Harry Atitonu, Umar Teni Wellington, Charles Dawouna and Rahman Salifu.
Anas' latest investigative piece is scheduled to premiere at the Accra International Conference Centre on Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th June, in Kumasi on Saturday, 9th June and Sunday 10th June. Tamale will watch on 13th June with Takoradi having its turn on 16th June 2018.
Titled Number 12, the exposé centers on bribery and corruption involving the Ghanaian football fraternity and other actors.
So far, the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi has become the first casualty as he is being investigated for using President Nana Akufo-Addo's name to solicit for bribes.
Apart from him, the exposé is also said to have captured 59 more people who are said to be very big men.
Ghanaians are very anxious for Wednesday, June 6, 2018, to see who are among the list of culprits to be captured in the latest exposé.
