On Monday 10th October 2022, the Super Morning Show on Joy FM conducted a live phone interview with Nana Nyowah Panyin IV of Dompim-Pepesa in the Western Region about the worrying impact of ‘galamsey’ on the Dompim-Pepesa community as captured in the Joy News documentary ‘Destruction for Gold’.

In the course of the interview, he mentioned Regional Minister Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah and Tarkwa Nsuem MP, George Mireku Duker as people he knew to be involved in the illegal business.

Host Kojo Yankson promptly demanded proof of the allegation. Our host steered off the allegation and issued a disclaimer when Nana Panyin IV sought to insist he was speaking the truth.

It is regretted that this encounter was soon published on www.myjoyonline.com. This was later taken down and disciplinary proceedings commenced to avoid a recurrence.

Messrs. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah and George Mireku Duker both deny the allegation and assure their commitment to fighting ‘galamsey’.

We once again dissociate Joy FM and Myjoyonline.com from the same, retract and apologize, sincerely to Messrs. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah and George Mireku Duker.
