Ashanti youth threatens to stop Chinese galamsey workers
The youth of Manso Nsiena in the Amasie West
district of the Ashanti region are threatening to
stop Chinese nationals from resuming illegal
mining in the community.
They are also angry the Chinese have been allowed
to begin dredging the Nwene River which is the
main source of drinking water for the community.
The inhabitants last month attacked some Chinese
engaged in illegal mining.
An opinion leader Joseph Albert Quarm told Joynews
the anger of the youth is getting out of hand.
“The people over there are waiting to see if they
(Chinese) will start breaking ground. And if that
happens, of course it means that the police have
not helped us as they told us.
“If that happens the inhabitants can take the law
into their own hands,” he cautioned.
Whilst he would not advocate for lawlessness, he
said he would be helpless if the youth decides to
take the law into their own hands.
However the spokesperson for the Ashanti Regional
Minister Francis Dodovi said the Chinese who are
back in the community were among those arrested
during the disturbance.
He told Joy News, they are only there to pick up

Here we are again with the Chinese issues trying to take the law into their own hands with the help of the Ghanaian authorities or cheifs or ghanaians criminals. There is no way a chinese can penetrate into the heartland of Ghana without a Ghanaians help. Ghana has always maintained good administrative and good governance of the country by signing legitemate contract with good cooperations with which the offer letters of contract take into accounts of enviromental harzards,geologioal and humantarian aspects of life are properly appraised and cost benefit analysis carried out by the ministryof mines with the agreement of the peoples of the area. Brothers and sisters all the chiefs(Nananom)and above all the ruling government open your eyes repatrate these criminals from our country because we do not want ghana to become second Congo in Africa where unlawful minig has maintained wars after wars. Long live ghana. Add YOUR View here
