The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) wants to
immortalise slain journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale by naming the
Investigative Journalist of the Year category of its annual awards after
The association of Ghanaian journalists says that although it is yet to conclude the modalities for the category, it is hopeful that the award will be a fitting tribute to Ahmed who was gunned down on January 16, 2019, in Accra.
The 32-year-old member of the Tiger Eye PI was leaving home in his car when two men said to be riding a motorbike shot him three times at Madina and bolted.
The GJA President Affail Monney made this known when he addressed a memorial service in honour of Ahmed on Friday in Accra.
"We believe he (Ahmed) has done something which should not be made to vanish with the passage of time," Mr Monney said in an interview with GraphicOnline.
He added: "So we are going to honour him with a category in investigative journalism. This is also to encourage young journalists".
