The fight against galamsey is back as the president is committed to fight until the menace ends. Last Wednesday, the president of the Republic of Ghana sent over 200 soldiers to the camp of galamseyers to see to it that, no one is allowed to mine illegally.
Many people have added their voices into the matter. The galamsey or illegal mining is causing a lot of havoc to the society and the environment as well. The natural resources i.e. forests, rivers and animals are been destroyed because of these illegal activities going on. Fishes in the water bodies are dying, rivers are becoming poisonous and so many things. People are not getting safe drinking water to drink because of illegal mining. The ascendancy of illegal mining is making things get out of hands.
This is why the president is very robust in his decision to fight it. According to the directives of the president, the military men should remove every machine they are using to operate in the water. A photo of past and current state of river Ankobra has been sighted online and truly the water is deteriorating. The river was very clean then, but you could see that it is now turning into something. The president decision is very good because if care is not taken, the valued natural resources we have will all destroy.
