Tufuhene  of Hwidiem in Asante Akyem, Nana Odidwo) Baah Kokroko has called on government to allow Chiefs punish recalcitrant people engaged in galamsey.


According to him, powers conferred on chiefs in punishing wrongdoers has been taken away by the laws in the Country.


People has taken advantage of democracy and downgrading powers of the chiefs.


He lamented that, wrongdoers no more respond to chiefs investigations when ther are summoned nor adhear to directives by chiefs as the laws  limit the role of chiefs in punishing people.


When given the power, Chiefs in the mining communities especially can deal with the illegal miners.


He also refuted claims that chiefs are mostly involved in galamsey.


He said, government is responsible for giving mining concessions to the miners and has no option to object as a chief.
