If They Won't Give To Their Cronies After Seizing Them, Then There's No Need To Burn -Kofi Bentil

The vice President of IMANI Center For Policy And Education Think Tank, Kofi Bentil has said that if the government won't give the excavators to his cronies after seizing them from illegal miners, then they can be maintained as state properties without burning them.

According to Kofi Bentil, it’s not wise to be wasting useful equipment, and then we turn around and use loan money to purchase some for government use. But the burning happens because we are a corrupt people.

Last time they were seized, some nation wreckers gifted them to their cronies. So many people agree with the burning.

He further added that, by law generally, when items including houses and equipment are involved in criminal activity, they are confiscated to the state and so their ownership per the law is transferred to the state and the state can decide what to with them including destruction. 

He concluded that if the government can be trusted to keep the excavators for developing the country, then there is no need to burn them.
