Aisha Huang: Accomplices should be targeted — Prof. Aning

Aisha Huang, Chinese galamsey queen

The cartel behind the Chinese galamsey queen, Aisha Huang, who re-entered Ghana illegally after her deportation needs to be dealt with as well, according to Professor Kwesi Aning, Director of the Faculty of Academic Affairs and Research at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre.

According to Prof. Aning, Aisha Huang should not be the sole target of the investigations and prosecution.

“This woman’s danger to us needs to be elevated so that we can use the law as much as possible,” he said on September 10.

“Her action should be elevated to treasonable act. Let us not rush to quickly try Aisha Huang.

“It is not only Aisha, let us identify Ghanaians who have facilitated her criminal enterprise.

“Let’s not make this a one man-show, let us understand the network. Who gave the license and how Aisha Huang took the gold out?”

Aisha Huang disrespected Ghana by reentering the nation without authorization, according to Dr. Vladimir Antwi-Danso, the Dean of the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC).

According to Dr. Antwi-Daneo, Ghanaian authorities must make it clear to all foreigners that they must adhere to the laws of the land.

Her return is disrespectful to us Ghanaians and to our nation. When someone is expelled, they are deemed persona non grata and are not desired until they are granted entry.

“She treated us with this kind of disdain, we should let all foreigners know that we are a country to be respected,” he said.


4 Chinese nationals were remanded into custody on Monday, September 5 by the Accra Circuit Court due to their alleged involvement in illegal small-scale mining activities.

Three defendants in the case, Jong Li Huang, Huang Jei, and Huiad Hua, entered a not guilty plea in court on Monday, September 5, in response to a charge of engaging in illegal mineral sales and purchases.

Aisha Huang, who was deported after taking part in galamsey operations, is accused of engaging in the unlicensed sale and purchasing of minerals as well as illegal mining.

She is said to have returned under a different name. According to reports, she applied for a Togo Visa and crossed into Ghana to carry on with her galamsey business at a town in the Ashanti Region.
