Sierra Network Investigate – Another Disaster Looms Over Tokeh If Action Is Not Taken
Today we see another quarry company mobilize in the Freetown peninsular, since March of this year. With the beaches deteriorating at an alarming rate due to sand mining, one can only wonder how and why would we want to now destroy what’s remaining of the forest reserves of the Freetown peninsular.
Tokeh beach is now the only prime location for beach goers together with no2 river beach, and the reason being that the sand in Tokeh is not suitable for construction and no2 river beach is too small to remove any sand from Jhon Obey Beach, Goderich Beach, Lakka Beach, Hamilton Beach to name but few have been almost completely destroyed due to sand mining.
This quarry is not more than 2 miles from Tokeh beach. How exactly must we encourage tourism? when we start destroying our very own beautiful assets that we badly need to attract tourist.
Lastly where is the EPA WHOSE SOLE PURPOSE IS TO PROTECT THESE ASSETS? Why would the environment ministry approve of such? when clearly they are the ones to protect these precious assets. And how is this developing the Freetown peninsular?
