Kwame A-Plus has lashed out at the government over its reluctance to crack the whip on Chinese nationals who continue to cut down cocoa trees in the country, destroy lands and water bodies in the name of hunting for gold.
His reactions come on the back of reports that China has begun exporting the Cocoa to Europe, thus jumping into the competition to break the Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire duopoly of controlling 80 percent of the world’s cocoa exports.
According to A-Plus he could not fathom why Ghanaian leaders continue to watch on while the Chinese cut down the country’s cocoa trees in search for gold; wondering which Ghanaian would be permitted to do same in China.
“Just last week China exported cocoa beans and these Chinese people come to your country, cut down cocoa trees in search of gold, put dangerous chemicals in your water and your soil, your land, destroy it and go and plant cocoa in their country,” he said on TV3‘s New Day on Wednesday, April 21.
“Tell me one Ghanaian who can cut a cocoa tree in China and walk free. They will behead you. What kind of human beings are we?” he wondered.
