blessings of natural resources we turned in to a curse

God has been so gracious to abundantly  bless my beloved continent Africa with natural resources talk about gold , daimond, crude oil and fertile land to grow crops as well . But unfortunately most of the counties on my beloved continent have not been able to maximise it to its full potential for the economic growth of my country as whole . 

let me zoom in on my beloved Country Ghana where apart from gold, daimond ,Bauxite God graciously blessed us with crude oil .But we have a situation where our gold is mined illegally to the extent that other nationals from other continent are also neck deep into this business . This foreign nationals mostly Chinese go to the extent of using excavators that  destroy our rivers the give us water to drink.this situation is so alarming that researchers said this illegal mining practice is not halted in a few years our water bodies will be destroyed. we will actually have to import water can you imagine that?

i will like to commend the government and the Ghanaian media for their efforts but a lot more needs to be done  . I feel this is just the beginning of the fight against illegal mining in my beloved country Ghana. we as citizens must rise up for us to win the war against "galamsey" the term used for illegal mining infact this menace must stop to save our environment.
