According to the Senior journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako some Chinese women in the business of galamsey have become untouchable because they hold secret recordings of $exual escapades with some’big men’ in Ghana.
He revealed this on Joy FM/MultiTV’s news analysis program, Newsfile, which aired on Saturday.
He said these women, about three of them, have video and audio recordings of powerful politicians and security officers.
In fact, they have built a network of influence in high places in the country which they rely on for protection whilst engaging in illegal mining.
Mr. Kweku Baako said these women came to Ghana and were involved in some other business but soon migrated to the business of galamsey.
According to Mr. Baako, they collected evidence of their sexual encounters with influential people and in some cases brought in young Chinese women who slept with these men and collected evidence which is now being used to blackmail the locals.
“…She’s got accomplices – the other one is called Monica, the other the name has slipped me because it’s a Chinese name. Part of their strength is that they built up a certain system of blackmailing. They are women so I’m not going to use certain words, I’m not going to say certain things.
“As to when they came into town, what they intend to do, who they were, what they were, had nothing to do with galamsey, but gradually they moved from that particular trade into galamsey.
“They have video and audio recordings of people who are powerful, videos of people who we have entrusted with responsibilities to protect us as a people. That’s how dangerous the game is and that is where the strength and power of these Chinese women are coming from,”He stated.
