Burning of seized excavators at galamsey sites, a needful initiative?

The directive of the government to the security personnel to burn the seized equipments that are used by the illegal "galamseyers" is a laudable initiative that could deter them from indulging in such act. But looking at the economic implications and the developmental needs and constraints confronting the the Ghanaian society, these seized machines could been used to carry out beneficial tasks to remedy the current situations we are facing as a country.

Instead of this machines been burnt to ashes leaving the owners jobless and increasing poverty, they could be seized and used for other purposes such as the construction roads, dams and or any other developmental project to benefit Ghanaians.

In as much as these individuals continue to degrade our forest reserves, polluting our water bodies at the detriment of others, there are people equally suffering in other parts of the country which one can easily say it is the "forgotten Ghana" whose lives could be touched positively if the burning of the machines, especially the excavators is given a sec thought.
