I will regulate “galamsey” when I become president – Kennedy Agyapong promises



New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Agyapong has said that he will put measures in place to regularise illegal small-scale mining, otherwise known as galamsey, if he becomes president.

Speaking in an interview, Ken Agyapong said that he is not going to destroy the business of galamseyers but rather provide them with the needed training and legalize their activities so that they can mine in an environmentally friendly way.

“The way galamseyers are destroying our water bodies, they should be registered under one body so that they can be regulated to make sure that they don’t destroy our forest, they don’t destroy our water bodies.”
“When I come (become president), I will not say that their (the galamseyers’) work should be destroyed but we are going to regularise them, legalize their activities, and give them the needed training,” he said Twi
