Illegal Mining Hits Ghana Water Quality


Board Chairman of Ghana Water Company Limited and Member of Parliament for Effutu constituency Alex Afenyo Markin has reiterated calls on government to intensify the fight against illegal mining popularly known as Galamsey. “This is not about Ghana Water Company, Ghana Water is a mere subset of the whole equation” Afenyo Markin mentioned. According to him, the era of playing politics with issues of illegal mining should be stopped, adding that Ghana is not ready to engage in desalination. He indicated that the Agricultural Sector, cocoa industries among others will collapse due to the lack of clean water.
