The DCE for Talensi, Mr. Thomas Wuni Pearson, has expressed concerns about certain allegations intended to tarnish his reputation. Speaking to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith, Mr. Pearson disclosed that there have been recent claims that he has accepted money from illegal miners to protect and shield them from the law.

“Our people are quick to say that someone has taken money to release somebody. Let us stop that. There is another leg I am going to deal with. There are accusations that people have been given money from illegal mining and some police officers are being paid money. Even me, they are mentioning our names left and right. They say they [illegal miners] give us money so that we won’t stop illegal mining. That is unfortunate.”

The Talensi DCE said he will soon begin legal actions against persons peddling such falsehoods. 

“I am going to send this to the police commander and I would make sure he goes out to pick all those who are making those accusations and interrogate them thoroughly and if it means prosecuting them, they would be prosecuted,” he said. 

Mr. Wuni Pearson, also called on all residents in Talensi to share all information relevant about armed robberies to the District Security Council (DISEC). This would help DISEC coordinate a more comprehensive response to the heightened concerns about security in the area.

Mr. Wuni Pearson made these comments when he spoke with A1 Radio’s Mark Smith.

“We are in the assembly and we are doing our work. If you have information, you can’t use your information to work. you would have to bring it to the people in-charge to do work. If you are sitting in the house, I cannot know which work you are doing but I am in the Assembly and you know that I am in charge. Who is not aware that the DCE is the chairman of DISEC? So when you have information, where do you take it? The police commander is in his office. It is for me to pick information and go and pick it for him. If I don’t go to tell my minister that these are my challenges, how would he know? He is taking care of 15 districts. That is not how work is done. We are together and when you have information, bring it to where the information can used to benefit all of us.”
