Yvonne Nelson is among the lot who are unhappy about the low power supply in Ghana.
She is doing all she can to see a positive change in this Dumsor illness which is already a chronic disease to every citizen here in Ghana.
After receiving various anonymous calls tagging her with the ASHAWO brand and threats, she still stands as the strong girl she has always been.
Her colleague celebrities including Sarkodie, Van Vicker, Lydia Forson and the lot have joined the Dumsor vigil which is happening on 16th May 2015.
In a recent message on Instagram, she outlines some sad words from colleague actor Van Vicker regarding our leaders and Dumsor.
Her text below..
Van Vicker writes:
We have gotten to that point where we can no longer stay quiet because we have given our leaders the benefit of the doubt to solve dumsor but the situation has only gotten worse.
I am distressed because authorities saw this coming but looked us in the face and told us ‘stories’. Stories we didn’t want to believe but took their word.
Now many nights as i turn into my
neighborhood, I see blackness all around and I think to myself ‘how in God’s name did we get to this point?’ As frustrating as the economy is
dumsor has come to exacerbate our plight. With our hard earned money we have to buy a
generator, inverter or solar panels when same cash could be put in an investment to better our lives.
Where is the sense of empathy from our rulers? We are getting laid off by our employers. TV advertisers are withdrawing their commercials because people don’t watch TV much no more. Movies purchasing power has declined some more; if you hardly have lights why purchase the movies? We film makers have serious
production and post production challenges because of dumsor.
It’s unfortunate for anyone to say that celebrities are advocating for
#dumsormuststop because of our
comfortability. It’s far beyond that. It’s all stressful and a waste of time on basics that shouldn’t take up limited time. It’s rather pathetic and unforgiving that we have to plan our lives and businesses around dumsor.
