Video: Ghana 'galamsey kids’: Children left behind by Chinese miners

7 months ago | Myjoyonline.com | Ghana

This BBC Pidgin documentary about Chinese miners who fathered children with local women while working and living in Ghana cracks open a problem that has escaped the illegal mining discourse.

Since 2017 when anti-galamsey campaign started with force by President Akufo-Addo, the Chinese illegal miners fled, leaving their racially-mixed children behind.

But all this while, the environmental havoc wreaked on rivers and land masses by the illegal mining activities has been the main focus.

However, as BBC Pidgin's Favour Nunoo reports, the stigma that greets these children and their mothers, coupled with deprivation due to the absence of their fathers, may need government intervention.
