The new Eastern Regional Police Commander, ACP George Alex Mensah, has pledged his support in the fight against illegal mining, also known as galamsey, in the Eastern Region.
The Eastern Region has been badly hit by the activities of illegal miners with a number water bodies, and farmlands polluted and destroyed.
ACP George Alex Mensah, in an interview with Citi News, said his outfit was ready to contribute their quota in ending galamsey in the region and the country as a whole.“It is a pity when you visit the sites where the galamsey operations are done.

If we do not put down punitive measures in place as soon as possible we will have to import drinking water.”
