“The onus to develop our country is on each of us, our shoulders, and and we must all get involved. It is sad how we are being affected by this illegal mining.”
He reckoned that various institutions have failed woefully a reason we are here talking about the activity of illegal mining.
“Various enforcement agencies like the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), Lands Commission as well as our traditional leaders have failed the country in the fight against illegal mining. If they will be responsible, we shall overcome this fight.”
