The Member of Parliament for Builsa South Constituency, Dr. Clement Apaak, has taken a swipe at Kweku Baako Jnr and US Ambassador to Ghana, Virginia Palmer for failing to reveal who the powerful forces in galamsey.
According to him, the failure on the part of the two persons to reveal the identities of the powerful persons makes them accessories to those profiting from the galamsey.
He made these claims in a series of tweet share on October 6, 2022 calling for those who are destroying the Ghana to be exposed and dealt with.
“Why are those who know the “powerful forces” fueling and profiting from illegal mining not telling us who these forces are? He asked.
He continued, “Kweku Baako, and recently American Ambassador to Ghana, have referenced these powerful forces. They out to expose them, if not they are accessories
The unenthused Lawmaker questioned why the security forces are failing the country by not dealing with the kingpins behind the menace of illegal mining.
“Who are these powerful forces we are told are fueling illegal mining(galamsey)? So powerful the state or its institutions and agencies are incapable of dealing with them? Is it that the nation is powerless ot those to take action have been compromised, rendering them powerless?” he asked.
Editor in Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper made revelation about Aisha Huang in 2019 about how powerful and connected she was, leading to the states inability to prosecute her.
According to him, Aisha has connection with big men in high places and for this reason, she appears rather untouchable regardless of her irresponsible actions.
“This particular Chinese woman, I have it on record- was arrested 3 times in the previous administration. Three times she was released. She is a very powerful woman. Operated more within the Ashanti Region, especially Kumasi.”
“She’s got connection from my won checks in this administration. She appears to be very smooth operative. She’s built a network across the political divide. She’s got her agents placed in political institutions, particularly the security agencies.” He said.
