Nzema Youth kick against Community mining scheme; Demand 1D1F rather
According to the Association, undeniable evidence from mining communities across the country show that mining – whether legal or illegal – leads to wanton destruction of the environment and abject poverty.
“…the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources inaugurated a new community mining site in Kwawblay village, (aka Kwabre), near Nuba in Jomoro (Nzema West) district, under the guise of providing jobs for us. …under different circumstances, this would have been something to celebrate. However, we are not celebrating”.
