It was an intense but educative discussion on TV3’s ‘New Day’ newspaper discussion. Johnny Hughes led his panelist of Malik Basintale, the NDC communications officer for the Savannah region and Kamal Deen, a deputy NPP communications director. They discussed issues relating to galamsey and the effects of the new war against it.
According to Basintale, it was the NPP who were stiff necked in the galamsey business. He maintained that President Akufo-Addo must put his hoses in order because even when some illegal miners are arrested, they are later released. He dared Kamal Deen to mention any NDC big wig involved in galamsey.
This however didn’t go down too well with Kamal Deen who felt this was a blatant lie. He alleged that one Kweku Boahen is involved in galamsey. He said the law is working to root out all illegal miners no matter their party affiliations. At that point Johnny Hughes interrupted and asked if Aisha Wang was standing trial in China.
Kamal chose not to answer but rather blame the NDC for the boom of galamsey. Johnny kept on reminding him to answer the question at hand. At one point Johnny said, “Just answer my question, is Aisha standing trial for what she did?” At this point Kamal explained that he is not following that story and so couldn’t tell what happened afterwards.
