Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Kenneth Ashigbey

Stakeholders within the minerals extraction sector say mere phrases are not sufficient within the bid to struggle unlawful small-scale mining within the country.

Executive Director for the Media Coalition Against Illegal Mining says government should display its will by seeing via the prosecution of individuals, particularly, overseas nationals who’re discovered culpable.

Kenneth Ashigbey’s cost follows contemporary assurance from the Lands Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor that infamous ‘galamsey’ kingpin, Aisha Huang will be jailed in Ghana if discovered culpable.

“She is being prosecuted and she will be prosecuted under Ghanaian law in Ghanaian court if she is found guilty which I believe she should be found and I think I am not making prejudicial comments but I am saying that given the fact that I have, I am expecting that Aisha Huang will be found guilty, convicted and sentenced and thrown into Ghanaian jail,” he said.

But Mr Ashigbey is but to be satisfied as he signifies the necessity to translate the rhetorics into motion.

“We have heard the President speak and now we’re hearing the sector Minister speak. We’re not going to take their word for it,” he said on Joy FM.

The Chinese national who’s set to reappear in courtroom on September 27 was accused of partaking in mining with no license after she was re-arrested in Ghana some weeks in the past.
