Breaking: Small-scale miners embark on demonstration

Scores of people have picketed at the Gyamfua Assenso Park, close to the Asokwa Police Station, Kumasi to demonstrate against the government's six months ban on all forms of small-scale mining activities in the country. 

According to some of the organisers, some unknown persons have been trying effortlessly to stop the demonstration from coming on by ordering them off the initial venue they paid to have the demonstration.

Also, there have been several Police attempts to turn back members of the Small-Scale Miners Association from other towns and villages who have been traveling to join the demonstration in Kumasi.

More to come soon.
