I watched Kate Gyamfua, the national women organizer of the new patriotic party a month ago on Net2, a media house affiliated to (NPP).
She was not in support of the approach of burning excavators to stop the war against galamsey. It is very wrong per her analysis on the program called the dialogue on Net2. she said the burning of excavators is a matter of heart issues, for one cost of excavator is $75000 and it can be used as another alternative than burning them into ashes.
I remember very well that she even said a certain media house called her that they went to her concession and found out that she is part of the galamseyer’s, and dare’s them if they telecast it she will sue the media house.
She denies the fact that she is not involved in any galamsey activities, she sounded political that those national democratic Congress (NDC) people making such allegation about her, if they don’t stop she will bring a tall list of NDC GURU’S involved in galamsey.
She gave a background history of how she entered into the mining business when she said it is a family business that she inherited from her late father. She said all these things before the fight against the galamsey bullet hit her and the partner’s extra gold.
Some people are of the view that the burning of her excavators and the partner’s equipment is a calculated attempt to silence and sabotage her within her party.
It is an open secret that off-late the women’s organizer of the ruling party (NPP) is very loud in the party and against certain things going on in the party, looking at the fracas between her and the roads and high way minister honourable, Amoako Atta.
Some fraction of people from the biggest opposition party (NDC) is of the view that burning of the ruling party national women organizer excavators is a deliberate attempt to loot for judgement debts.
The galamsey fighters are using her as a sacrifice as if they are on course. There was a video that was circulating on social media last week when the 16 regional women organizer’s of (NPP)
went to console her by praying with her. looking at the uncontrollable tears flowing from her eyes speaks about the pains, worried, and sadness in her.
I overheard the PRO of an xtra-gold mining company on Oman 107.1fm saying that the company is not into illegal mining. They have all the legal documents backing their mining company.
Per this narrative I suspected the women’s organizer of the new patriotic party, Kate Gyamfua might fight back for her excavators which were burnt in the name of the fight against galamsey.
