Water bodies in Ghana were at the brink of destruction following the degradable activities of small scale miners, popularly know in Ghana as galamsey. Water bodies including the river Ankobra and Pra river have been inundated with dirt and heavy additives rendering them virtually unusable. The situation burst the floodgates wide, and from within were torrents of cry and pleads to the government to help curb the issue. Courtesy to the president and the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Dr Abu Jinapor, military task forces have been assigned to visit minning sites and hault the activities of illegal miners to help conserve our water bodies.
Several excavators, Dozers, pumping machines and changfangs of illegal small scale miners have been destroyed by the task forces, as part of the mission to curb the situation. The action seem to be yielding result after Ankobra was recently spotted with a new look. After several months of brownish discoloration, it is gradually return to its natural state. Check out how the Ankobra river looks now.
Kudos to the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor and the military task forces for salvaging our waters.
