As the public are debating on the destruction of excavators with some suggesting the government of Ghana to seized the excavators and allow the court to make a decision, others are adding that, due to the involvement of some politicians in illegal mining, political leaders fail to fight against galamsey and are allowing the pollution of water bodies in the country.
The president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at the commencement of a law Village project stated that he will not stop destroying the equipment that is being used to pollute water bodies until the criminal act has come to an end.
News from Upper Denkyira West of Ghana notified that police are now on operation in arresting galamsayers as an order of the president of Ghana. With police using force in putting a stop to galamsayers, galamsayers are also changing their time of mining in order to avoid police interference. As a result, they work at night resulting in over fifty miners being injured and five ending their lives.
As the government is seriously fighting against galamsey, it is now reported that the government will continue to burn excavators and arrest all illegal miners afterward.
