Kessben FM and TV journalists dressed in red attire to fight Galamsey on Friday
Many journalists in the country took their campaign against illegal mining, also known as ‘galamsey,’ a notch higher on Friday.
The media practitioners wore red attire to express their dissatisfaction with the rampant destruction of the environment through illegal mining in the country.
Journalists working at Kessben FM and TV in Kumasi, led by the news editor of Kessben FM, Charles Brafo Anakwa, registered their anger over illegal mining and its negative effects on the environment.
The media practitioners have therefore vowed to use their powerful platforms to campaign against illegal mining until the government totally bans it.
Mr. Anakwa, alias ‘Yahoo’, told DAILY GUIDE that the illegal miners have rapidly destroyed all farmlands and water bodies in the country.
He said it was unacceptable for the environment to be destroyed for some few people to prosper.
Mr. Anakwa therefore entreated journalists across the country to sustain the fight against illegal mining to ensure sanity in the system.
