An explosive documentary has rocked Ghana’s football association, showing executives including the organisation’s head allegedly proposing bribes worth millions of euros. .
Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi was caught suggesting lucrative deals to undercover journalists posing as “investors” in the film “Number 12”, which was shown Wednesday at a preview attended by diplomats and politicians in the capital Accra. .
Other Ghana FA executives were also filmed accepting bribes influencing player selection for various national teams, an AFP correspondent said. .
And 15 referees were even caught on camera allegedly accepting just $100 (85 euros) to rig Ghana Premier League matches — with their assistants taking $50. .
The project is the result of two years work by an undercover investigative journalist who goes by the pseudonym Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who is known for previously exposing graft in Ghana’s judiciary. .
The documentary shows Nyantakyi proposing to journalists posing as investors pay him $11 million to help grease the palms of key government officials to secure contracts.
