Photos: Massive turnout at “DumsorMustStop” vigil

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



The ‘Dumsor Must Stop’ vigil which started at exactly 4pm on Saturday May 16, 2015 at the University of Ghana overhead Bridge in Accra to highlight the energy crisis in the country popularly known as ‘dumsor’ witnessed massive turnout.

The vigil started with a peaceful procession from the Legon overhead bridge through streets where the celebrities and their fans were holding candles, torchlight, placards, fridge and lanterns to express their concerns and sentiments about the situation.

Dumsor Must Stop” campaign which started on social media not long ago by Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson, has indeed reached out to more Ghanaians resulting in the massive turnout of the vigil.

The over 1, 000 people present shared their concerns and sentiment on their placards and held other items with messages to the President to put in ways to stop the ongoing power crisis in the country.

Most of the people engaged in the vigil who were seen in their black and red dresses explained that the ‘dumsor’ situation has caused more harm to Ghanaians as most have lost jobs, lost relatives through the use of generator, among others.

Yvonne Nelson, Van Vicker, Prince David Osei, Wanlov Kubolor, Efya, DKB, Barima Sidney, Afia Schwarzenegger, D-Black, who were championing the vigil were all present to make it successful.

Even though the vigil triggered disagreements between the La Traditional Council and the Ga Traditional Council over the postponement of the vigil due to the ban on noise; but the La Chief Priest gave the green light since the venue will not affect the ban.

Greater Accra regional police PRO, Efia Tenge together with over two hundred police officers ensured a tight security for participants as well as the celebrities to ensure safety.

Ghana is currently enduring a serious power rationing that has persisted for the past three years; hence the celebrities were using the vigil to call on the government to find ways to end it.

The peaceful vigil successfully ended at the park near the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange in Accra.

The vigil went on successfully, for now all we want to is a positive impact from it. We need our government to sit and make good decisions concerning the country's governance so that they put things right cos we Ghanians are suffering a lot from the ongoing load shedding...

@MherlynEmhr3z I'm sorry to say that it has rather been met with an increase in fuel prices. Give us electricity..... no. You turn around and increase the price of petroleum products we use to power our gen sets. Abah! What kind of "dumb kid-led" government koraa is this one?

Ghanaian Rapper, Sarkodie has commended his colleagues for holding a successful protest against the crippling power crisis.

Sarkodie, who was one of the main organisers of the event and had supported Yvonne Nelson since she began her campaign on social media had to trade the ‘dumsor’ vigil to record an album with famous American rapper Ace Hood in the United States.

The two-time VGMA artiste of the year in a statement explained that: “a rather tight working schedule in the United States made it impossible for me to be physically present at the gathering.”

Below are details of the statement released by Sarkodie

Yesterday a bold statement was made. #dumsormuststop went from being just a social media awareness creation campaign to something we are all now proud of.

History has been created, your way, our way.

To Yvonne Nelson, my other colleagues who joined, and the rest of the team that put this together, I want to say a big congratulations.

A rather tight working schedule in the United States made it impossible for me to be physically present at the gathering.

Long live the good people of this country.

Together let’s continue to push for an end to the current electricity supply crisis.
