Illegal mining in the country has been a topical issue in the country for the past few years sparking major campaigns and outrage by Ghanaians especially over the negative impact on the activities on water bodies and lands.
Citi FM led a campaign spanning many months with a petition to Parliament to demand among other things that the mining sector be sanitized.
The government, in taking action on the campaign constituted joint police and military taskforce called Operation Vanguard, which was tasked to arrest and ensure prosecution of illegal small-scale miners in the country.
While some arrests were made, rumours were rife that the task force was in the business of taking bribes and leaving out illegal-small scale miners, but the taskforce’s commanders denied those claims insisting that the major problem with their work was the slow pace of prosecution and the lenient sanctions imposed on persons prosecuted.
