Yaw Danso, the District Chief Executive of Bosome Freho in the Ashanti Region has been suspended with immediate effect, a letter signed by Dan Botwe, the Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development has said.
“The president has directed the suspension of Yaw Danso, district chief executive for Bosome Freho District Assembly with immediate, pending investigations into his alleged engagement in illegal mining (galamsey) activities.”
“In view of the above, you are requested to provide oversight responsibility for the management and administrative issues concerning the district, until further notice,” the letter addressed to the Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei-Mensah said.
Earlier, President Akufo-Addo summoned Danso after a viral tape implicated him of illegal mining.
Yaw Danso is alleged to have been involved in dodgy dealings and transactions linked to mining concessions within his jurisdiction.
