Galamsey activities in Ghana are on the rise. A lot of people are destroying trees and water bodies just to get some mineral substances in the soil. The government has served several notices to the public to desist from any form of illegal mining activities but to no avail. It is believed some government officials and chiefs in various communities are into these galamsey activities.
