Energy Expert, Kojo Poku, has said some persons involved in illegal small scale mining (Galamsey) are financing some political parities in Ghana.
This is making the fight against the illicit small scale mining trade difficult, he said.
“The fight against galamsey has been a herculean one because some people in the illegal mining business fund some political party activity,” he told Alfred Ocansey on the Sunrise show on 3FM Thursday February 3.
The government formed a taskforce to tackle the galamsey menace in the country.
The taskforce has been burning excavators that have been seized.
