The residents of Upper Denkyira are very happy as the Offin river is now gaining its normal glory. The Dunkwa-on-offin river was almost destroyed because of the galamsey and other minning activities in the area. But now the river is gradually regaining its former glory due to the reduction in the galamsey activities. The residents told Adom News that they are glad because at first there was a change in the colour of the river, fortunately it is gradually gaining its normal colour.
They gives thanks to the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources for protecting the river and also this was possible as the Government deployed Military personnel to help put a stop to galamsey activities which was the major thing destroying the river in that area. One of the residents said when he was five old, they used to fetched the river for cooking, washing and even drinking. At that time the river was so clean but now they cannot use it to do any household activities.
