Yvonne Nelson to lead another ‘dumsor’ vigil

Actress Yvonne Nelson of Ghana is scheduled to spearhead another vigil against the unstable power supply, also referred  in local parlance as “dumsor”

The actress formally notified the Ghana Police Service about the planned demonstration.

She stated that the vigil would take place on May 25 in a statement released on May 9.

The note, which was addressed to the Inspector General of Police, said that the vigil would begin at Revolution Square at 8:30 am and end at midnight.

In addition to expressing their displeasure with the current unsatisfactory power supply scenario, the letter sought to furnish the president with proof of its crippling consequences.

Yvonne Nelson to lead another ‘dumsor’ vigil

In a previous tweet, Yvonne Nelson extended an invitation to Ghanaians to join her in a big campaign against the recent unpredictable power outages.

This appeal for action follows parallel demonstrations that Yvonne and other celebrities organized in 2015 to protest frequent power shortages.

Yvonne Nelson hopes for a similar turnout this time and seeks the support of the general public for the imminent protest against ‘dumsor.’

IMANI invitation

In her post on X on Monday, April 22, Yvonne Nelson expressed her readiness for IMANI’s outreach for the vigil, citing the organization’s involvement in the 2015 edition.

But IMANI President Franklin Cudjoe said his think tank will not succumb to pressure to organise a demonstration against government over the ongoing power outages.

He emphasised that IMANI will conduct their protest at their own pace, and individuals who share their grievances are welcome to organise their demonstrations.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, April 23, Mr Cudjoe revealed that they are gearing up to demonstrate against the ongoing crisis.
