Can Ghanaians Go And Mine In Chinese Water Bodies?- The Question Ghanaians Are Not Asking.

The issue of unregulated mining being it galamsey or small scale mining has become a menace to Ghanaian society, as the various water bodies are being destroyed every day with the aid of Chinese miners and Ghanaian citizens, but we are forgetting to ask ourselves if we can go and mine in a Chinese water body.

For some time now, there has been a shortage of clean drinking water in the regions as the water bodies which serve us with water are turning into muddy water and hence the cost of treatment for safe consumption has become very expensive. And so the Ghana Water Company can not clean the water as fast as possible for Ghanaians.

The ambassador of the Chinese government to Ghana said that, no Chinese man knows the location of Ghana’s mining communities or reserves but it's the Ghanaians ourselves who introduce them to the trade. Moreover, it's not the Chinese government who gives them the visas to come to Ghana but it's the Ghanaian government.

He even made an instance with South Africa where there is a lot of gold but there is no Chinese mining illegal there because the people don't support such illegalities. And hence Ghanaians are to be blamed for the rise in galamsey and bad nature of water bodies.

Do you agree with the comments of the Chinese ambassador to Ghana?
