We are shocked by the assassination of our Ghanaian colleague and investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Suale was murdered on Wednesday 16 January, 2019 in Madina, Ghana. He was part of the Tiger Eye and the African Investigative Publishing Collective, both partner organisations of ZAM. He contributed immensely to efforts to sanitise governance in Ghana through his work that has exposed corruption, wrongdoing, conflict of interest, waste, maladministration and outright thievery in this West African country. Suale played a key role in the ‘Killing Soccer’ project, exposing corrupt practices in the African soccer world.
An official police investigation has started. Ahmed Hussein Suale was buried on Thursday 17 January, 2019.
