The news of the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, an investigative journalist who helped expose corruption in African football, has been received by the Ghana Integrity Initiative, the local chapter of Transparency International.
“The act is signalling a dangerous twist to the fight against corruption in Ghana,” Transparency said in a statement issued on January 18. “The enormous contribution of investigative journalists and media in general to the fight against corruption cannot be emphasised enough.”

The statement added that Ghana Integrity Initiative joins all other anti-corruption civil society and media organizations in Ghana and all over the world over to condemn this dastardly act.
This act is not only going to create fear and panic among well-meaning Ghanaians who are desirous to join the fight against corruption, but it is also going to dent the image of Ghana’s growing democracy.
Ghana Integrity Initiative believes that to end the impunity for attacks on journalists, the police and all other appropriate state agencies must swiftly investigate this heinous crime and make the perpetrators face the full rigors of the law.
