Abandoned mining pit kills two girls in the Central Region.


Illegal miners in Ghana mostly leave the pits they extract gold from uncovered and this does not only destroy the environment but become death traps in our galamsey communities. Successive governments effort's to curb the menace have not yielded any good results.

Kessben media, a local media outlet in the Ashanti regional capital has confirmed the death of two female teenagers, a 14-year and an 11-year old who died instantly after falling in an uncovered galamsey pit in the Upper Denkyira West district of the Central Region. According to Yaw Boamah, an eyewitness, parents of the young girls mounted a search for the girls after many hours of not seeing their wards.

They then alerted the Police service who began the search for the girls. After many hours of a fruitless search by family, friends and the police, a young man returning from his farm in the area the galamsey pit was located, noticed someone in the pit, he hurriedly rushed to the police to inform them.

Personnel of the Police service brought the remains of the young ladies out of the galamsey pit and notified their parents for identification which was confirmed. Investigations have been launched into the matter to ascertain the cause of the problem and for necessary actions to be taken.

Chiefs of the area has sent a word of caution to the miners and has entreated them to cover all pits or face their wrath.
