    Yvonne Nelson ready for #dumsormuststop march; cites bad governance, lies, arrogance

    Actress and movie producer, Yvonne Nelson, has stated her readiness for today’s planned protest against rolling power blackouts in the country.

    In a post on X dated June 7, 2024, Yvonne disclosed not being fully fit but that she was ready to march irrespective of how many people turned up for the protest.

    “My Health hasn’t been 100%, but I will still walk from Legon down to Tetteh Quarshie in protest of a better GHANA for my kids and their kids. Even if it’s just me, 5 of us, 20 or a 1000. I will still walk. We don’t deserve bad governance coupled with lies and arrogance.#dumsormuststop,” her post read.

    The initial plan for the protest was changed over suitability of the venue. Police maintained that gathering at the Revolution Square, opposite Jubilee House, was not appropriate citing security reasons.

    The organizers subsequently chose to start their march from the main gate of the University of Ghana to the Tetteh Quarshie circle where protesters will be addressed by the organizers.

    Rolling power blackouts (referred to as dumsor) peaked months back even though the power distributor, Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and government insisted that the outages did not constitute dumsor.

    Yvonne Nelson was a central figure in 2015 protests against the then government on the issue of dumsor.
