Dr. Benjamin Kumbuor

MP begs Kumbuor over false ‘military galamsey’ claim
The Member of Parliament for Manso Adubea in the
Ashanti region Yaw Frimpong has apologized to the
former Defence Minister over his allegations that
Dr. Benjamin Kumbuor ordered military personnel to
guard illegal mining concessions.

Hon. Frimpong made the claim after concerns were
raised by the Lands and Natural Resources Minister
John Peter Amewu over the presence of some
soldiers protecting galamsey sites in the
country.’

The legislator in an interview on an Accra based
Radio station stated that he had interacted with
Dr. Kumbuor who confirmed that the military were
deployed at the instance of the Defence ministry.

But speaking on the Ultimate Breakfast Show
Wednesday morning, the MP retracted and apologised
to Dr Kumbuor claiming that he was misquoted by
the media.

“The reporters have misinterpreted what I said
about my brother Benjamin Kumbuor…if my brother
thinks that I have brought his name into disrepute
then I am sorry, it wasn’t in any negative way at
all.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Kumbour in an earlier interview on
Starr FM rubbished claims by the MP that he
approved military protection for the Russia and
Ukraine nationals who were arrested for illegal
mining Monday.

According to him, the decision to deploy military
men anywhere in the country is solely taken by the
Military Command structure and not the minister.

“These things are normally done by the military
high command. So it will be very unusual for me to
be telling an honourable member that I did such a
thing.

“Even if I take a decision on such matters, it
will be referred to the military high command to
implement because they are operational matters. So
I find it quiet serious that one will say such a
thing,” he said.
