Hand dig the area and then pour boiling water over the area. This should kill most of what is there. After that, keep a sharp eye out for any new growth and remove it as quickly as possible. The ginger will be weakened by the digging and water, so will die out quickly as long as you make sure it does not grow any new leaves.

Be aware that boiling water will kill any plant it comes in contact with so do not use this in an area that you have plants you want to keep. In areas like this, you can only hand dig the ginger out.
