Kwame Okyere Darko a Business Development Consultant and an advocate against illegal mining,. has said the fight against galamsey was not real.
“This Galamsey fight is the biggest environmental scam in Sub Saharan Africa…it is not the illegality of it but the collection of the problem also became an avenue for people to rob the state and also rob the people,” he said
His comment comes after the President dissolved the Inter- Ministerial Committee against Illegal mining.
Contributing to discussions on the 3FM’s Sunrise Morning Show, Kwame Okyere Darko said the Seizure of excavators made the fight problematic.
