Hon. Darko Mensah Teams with the Marine, National Security To Halt illegal Mining In Whin River

Hon. Kwabena Darko Mensah has teamed with the Marine Police and the National Security to carry out a special operation to stop illegal Mining in the Whin River today.

After the operation, he posted pictures of mining zone and exavators they took during the operation. He wrote;

"On Monday, 24th May 2021, myself, together with the Marine Police and National Security stormed Emerɛdane, a community next to Mampong in the Western Region to conduct operation against illegal mining on the Whin River. We received an intelligence from a Chief and we responded accordingly. Though the miners unfortunately upon leaked information absconded, their excavators that were hidden in bushes were found and demolished because it was a total breach of the red light zones per the government's directive.*

"I will urge all to heed to the call from the President to desists from such acts because we will not allow anyone to engage in it. I will still admonish all to note that, our water bodies and forest still remains a no go area for illegal miners."

See the post he made on his Facebook page
