Yvonne Nelson calls for another ‘dumsor’ vigil

Ghanaian actress and activist Yvonne Nelson has turned to Twitter to call for a second vigil in response to Ghana’s current power crisis.

Yvonne Nelson, who was involved in organizing the 2015 #DumsorMustStop campaign, voiced dissatisfaction with the current administration’s handling of the matter.

Nelson contacted Imani Ghana, a civil society group, in a post on April 22, 2024, inviting them to join a new march.

She emphasized the previous campaign’s success, which was largely due to IMANI’s contributions.

The actress accused the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and President Nana Akufo-Addo of taking Nigerians for granted.

“Imani Ghana, can we organize another vigil? I’ve been waiting for you to reach out like you did years back. ( your team made our demo a success ) I’m reaching out myself. The NPP and its leadership @NAkufoAddo have taken Ghanaians for granted. #DUMSORMUSTSTOP,” she posted.

Nelson is pushing for action, and the hashtag #DUMSORMUSTSTOP, which served as a focal point for online protests against the inconsistent power supply, is gathering traction once more.

Her appeal to action adds to the mounting annoyance of Ghanaians regarding the ongoing electricity problems plaguing their country.

The palava called “dumsor”

Ghanaians started to abruptly and continuously lose power in several sections of the country as early as late 2023.

The disturbances to businesses and the daily routines of individuals were brought on by these outages, which became worse in 2024.

Some citizens have concluded that “dumsor” is returned as a result of this.

A large-scale protest in 2015 about the “dumsor” problem was attended by numerous celebrities, including Prince David Osei and Yvonne Nelson.

Numerous government representatives have asserted, meanwhile, that “dumsor” is not the cause of the outages. Furthermore, they maintain that a timeline was not necessary.

The issue grew worse when Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the minister of energy, pushed individuals requesting a timeline to create one on their own.
