Wontumi Is Bitter Because My Brother Refused To Give His Chinese Friends A ‘Galamsey’ License – Alfred Mahama

Published

on


Alfred Mahama, businessman and elder brother of former President John Dramani Mahama, says the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi) is bitter because his request for a galamsey license for some of his chinese friends was not granted.

Speaking on Bole-based Nkilgi Fm, Alfred Mahama said Chairman Wontumi had pleaded with him earlier that he wanted to see his brother [to] discuss some issues related to mining with him when he was the president of Ghana so he led Wontumi to him.

He said, upon listening to the young man, he decided to assist him regardless of his political party affiliation, although he didn’t know that Wontumi was a strong NPP member at that time.

He revealed that his brother [John Mahama] declined the young man’s mining business proposal because of the inclusion of his thousands of Chinese nationals in the small-scale mining operations.

Alfred Mahama said, “From where I come from, I am always ready to support anybody who has the potentials to advance the name of Ghana in any field, irrespective of which political party or background of that person”.

He indicated that in 2012, he travelled with Wontumi from Kumasi to Tamale purposely to meet his brother who was then the President of Ghana. It was a time that he thought the young man had the opportunity to present his mining proposal to him in person. Unfortunately, the small-scale miner couldn’t technically and professionally convince the former president so he rejected his plan.

He said the Ex-President then advised that small-scale mining in Ghana is reserved for only Ghanaian citizens so he would rather be pleased with a proposal that would enable only Ghanaians to operate in an environmentally friendly manner without any foreign national involvement.

“Wontumi began to insult my brother publicly after his thousands of Chinese agents were part of the over 7,000 deported illegal Chinese miners from the country. Wontumi is a ‘galamsey kingpin’ and his party has no control over him”. He added.

Akufo-Addo Brings Back Sacked Sekyere East DCE

Published

on


President Akufo-Addo has rescinded his decision after firing Sekyere East District Chief Executive (DCE) Mary Boatemaa Marfo.

Mrs Marfo was sacked for allegedly threatening to reduce the votes of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Effiduase-Asokore Constituency during the December 7 polls.

In a leaked audio, the DCE was heard in a conversation with a party member saying that she will frustrate voters on election day which will in turn reduce the votes of the NPP and the Member of Parliament, Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie.

However, a new letter from the Presidency has revealed the President has backed down and reinstated her.

“I have to inform you that His Excellency the President has rescinded the decision to revoke the appointment of Hon. Mary Beatrice Marfo as District Chief Executive of Sekyere East District Assembly,” part of the letter read.

UN Supports Western Togolanders; Let’s Be Diplomatic – Ernesto Yeboah

Published

on


Self-styled “Commander-in-Chief” of “Fighters”, a radical Nkrumahist group, Ernesto Yeboah have claimed that the United Nations are siding with the Western Togoland secessionist group therefore it beholds on the state to handle the break-away issue diplomatically.

“Truth be told, they have the law on their side. The United Nations is also on their side. It will be naive for anybody to suggest the use of violence in resolving this matter,” he wrote on Facebook.

He called on authorities to shun the use of violence and resort to tactfulness and diplomacy to bring a conclusion to the matter.

“It requires tact, diplomacy and unconditional respect for their rights,” he stated.
