The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) says it is committed to dealing with illegal mining activities in the country which according to them,  it has made significant progress in curbing illegal mining activities along with River Pra within three days of the second phase of its “Operation Halt.”

The Chief of Defence Staff, Vice Admiral Seth Amoama during her visit to one of the fields expressed satisfaction at their work.

“I came to visit the troops in the field and deliver a special ‘mission accomplishment’ message for the efforts they have made so far in dealing with this menace of illegal mining, particularly on the water bodies. I am highly satisfied with what they have been able to achieve within 3 days. They have cleared the River Pra all the way from the estuary up to Twifo Praso.”

“The Ghana Armed Forces is ever ready to defend the territorial integrity of the nation".

Last week, President Nana Akufo-Addo,  deployed about 200 military personnel to flush out illegal miners destroying water bodies in the country.

A statement from the Information Ministry, which made the announcement, said the team commenced the operation on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, on the River Pra in the Central and Western Regions.

The government recently renewed its commitment to fight illegal mining at a National Consultative Dialogue on Small Scale Mining, where stakeholders charged the government to take steps to strictly apply the country’s mining laws.

The government says it is reinvigorating its fight against the menace in the country.
