Recent news concerning government’s intention to combat illegal mining activities came up not long ago.
Government in its quest to eradicate the problem delegated Armed military men to areas where this situation was going on.
In a recent dialogue shared by the Asantehene Nana Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, he indicated some top personalities within the country are involved in these illegal activities that have become rampant in our communities.
A few days after his speech, Ghanaians have been introduced to a different twist of the story.
An active member of the ruling party (NPP), who goes by the name Kate Gyamfua, got eight of his excavators burnt for engaging in ‘Galamsey’ activities. Currently, Kate is the women’s organizer for the New Patriotic Party.
One thing that baffles me is why an active member of the ruling party will fall victim to such an offense.
Is it now clear Nana Addo has risen to fight the situation of ‘Galamsey’ operations, irrespective of the individuals involved?
We wait to see.
