Galamsey man weeps like a baby seeing his excavator in flames



Illegal small-scale mining, popularly known as galamsey has left most water bodies mud-spattered.

Though some Ghanaians believe that the government has lost the fight against the canker which is eating up the country, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reassured Ghanaians of his resolve to end galamsey in Ghana.

Weeks back, Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor announced that his outfit will go all out to ensure that galamsey comes to an immediate end without fear nor favour, it seems he’s delivering on that promise.
