All through the presence and noise making that rosewood has been banned, there is still processing, transportation and harvesting of rosewood in the Savannah region where the minister for lands and forestry originates. The Yipala plant which was closed sometime ago is in full swing productions and process.
The said rosewood processing plant is not up to 5km from the ministers’ residence in His constituency.

Rosewood is still being harvested in savannah region damongo and surrounding in west gonja and being processed in Yipaala, Kafaba and kulor in east gonja and transported over the black Volta into tema and south.
