Galamsey fight is 'war' – Ken Ashigbey
Even though it appears the anti-galamsey fight has
chalked some successes, “we should all know that
this is not a battle that we are going to win
immediately, it’s a war, so, there are a few of
the battles that we are winning but there are
greater ones that are out there,” Managing
Director of the Graphic Communications Group, Mr
Ken Ashigbey has said.

As of Wednesday, 19 April, the end of the 21-day
ultimatum given by the Minister of Lands and
Natural Resources for the galamseyers to stop
operating, 544 excavators and other earth-moving
equipment had been withdrawn from illegal mining
sites across the country.

Mr Ashigbey, who is leading a media coalition to
give impetus to the war declared on illegal
small-scale mining by the Akufo-Addo government,
told Moro Awudu on Class91.3FM’s Executive
Breakfast Show on Thursday, 20 April that although
the media support has been “unprecedented”, the
gains made are just the beginning.

Since the campaign, several Chinese galamseyers
have been arrested together with their Ghanaian
counterparts.

The media reportage on the campaign vis-à-vis the
Chinese, got the China mission in Ghana angry to
the extent that it issued a statement urging the
Ghanaian government to rein in the media.

This got the Ghanaian media and local stakeholders
firing back saying China cannot dictate to the
West African country what to do with its media.
