The Management of Sankofaonline.com express our sincere thanks to Nana Otumfuo for this BOLD declaration!
Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has warned his sub-chiefs to stay out of illegal mining activities, otherwise known as ‘galamsey’ or risk dealing with his wrath.
“You must appreciate that if I get reports about galamsey and we trace it to any particular chief, we know what to do with that so let us appreciate that,” he warned.
According to him, the negative existence of illegal small scale miners is a national challenge and must be contained.
“In terms of galamsey, we know it’s a national issue, but I don’t think we should allow that to come to this place.
“Nananom, you are here and I am saying that we don’t have to allow that to come to this place. No matter what, no matter who has whatever money, you don’t have to allow this to come here,” he stressed.
His warning follows a working visit he paid to Newmont Ghana mines in the Brong Ahafo Region
