Investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni is calling for the resignation of President Akufo-Addo if he cannot fire anyone for Aisha Huang’s return.
Manasseh believes the galamsey kingpin’s return to Ghana is beyond embarrassment and somebody must be held responsible for it.
“Akufo-Addo must resign if he can’t fire anyone for this Aisha Huang embarrassment. The sh*t is now beyond the ceiling,” he asserted on Facebook.
Meanwhile Huang Ruixia alias Aisha Huang has been arrested again and arraigned for fresh charges.
Aisha Huang, who was a household name in Ghana five years ago, was charged together with three others for engaging in sales and purchases of minerals without a licence.
Per the brief facts of the prosecution, Aisha Huang had previously escaped prosecution in Accra when arrested earlier.
She was said to have returned to her country and changed her identity only to come back to Ghana and commit the same crime.
She is said to have applied for a TogoVisa and went through the borders into Ghana and back to the galamsey business in a town in the Ashanti Region.
The three others with her are said to be selling mining equipment and dealing in gold without a valid licence in Accra.
In May 2017, Aisha Huang gained some notoriety after her arrest and was tagged as the Galamsey Queen.
She had been charged with three counts of undertaking small-scale mining operations, contrary to Section 99 (1) of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006 (Act 703); providing mining support services without valid registration with the Minerals Commission, and contrary to the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006 (Act 703), and the illegal employment of foreign nationals, contrary to the Immigration Act, 2000 (Act 573).
In the course of the prosecution, the government controversially discontinued the case and deported her in December 2018.
