- Lumba pledges support for the government in the unrelenting fight against illegal mining
- The issue of illegal mining otherwise known as ‘galamsey’ has caused a serious degradation of the environment resulting in the pollution several water bodies
Highlife legend Charles Kwadwo Fosu, popularly known as Daddy Lumba, has vowed to support government in its fight against illegal mining.
The musician has gone into a collaboration with the Nananom Group of Companies to lend support government in fighting the menace.
On behalf of his NGO – the Daddy Lumba Foundation – the highlife artiste signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dr. George Obeng, who serves as the CEO of the Nananom Group of Companies, to this regard.
The MoU is supposed to bind both institutions, as they strive to make Ghana a country free from illegal mining, popularly known as galamsey.
Illegal mining has been one of the major cankers currently bedeviling Ghana, with the act destroying many of the nation’s lands and water bodies.
The current government, upon winning power, made it a point to fight the menace, with president Akufo-Addo warning that anyone found culprit will not be pardoned.
Daddy Lumba’s collaboration with the Nananom Group of Companies will see a project dubbed “Clean water for all” launched. The project is geared towards using documentaries and African music as campaign tools against illegal mining.
The programmes lined up in the project will also see both institutions use musical platforms to raise funds for deprived communities that lack potable water.
Daddy Lumba described the project as dear to his heart, insisting he will do his best to help government win the fight against illegal mining.
