1D1F Land turns into community mining site: Chief laments bitterly

It is long overdue that our leaders take up their responsibility and prove to teaming youth, who have lost confidence in the leadership, that they are worth being in those respective positions. Leadership has never been an easy task looking at the fact that humans are unpredictable in behavior and attitudes. But to tell truth to the people one leads is a great effort in strengthening the trust subordinates had in making one the head.

The surge in galamsey issues have largely been blamed on leadership mostly because several evidence have pointed fingers at various persons in high positions of government and political parties, with some having their equipment and excavators burnt. If these leaders are the ones destroying our lands and water resources necessary for our future growth, what kind of future do they envisage for the younger generation? Is it wickedness or sheer greed, or probably both? Your guess is as good as ours.

This morning turned out to be very interesting when a MCE for Obuase has been reported by chief of Kwapia in the Obuase municipality, Nana Gyamera Yiakwan for giving out a piece land, meant for 1D1F, to illegal miners but failed to reclaim the land by covering up the pits. This, according to the chief, has caused a lot of discomfort and inability to use the land for its original purpose. The chief also claimed that anyone who tries to go public with the attitude of the MCE of the area has suffered attacks with a top member of the NPP dying from it when he decided to have a press conference against the MCE. Speaking to Angel TV on Tuesday morning 29th June 2021, he called on the president and all other stakeholders to put the MCE in line.
