DumsorMustStop Protest Sparks Controversy: Was the Demonstration Necessary?

On June 8, 2024, a peaceful protest led by actress Yvonne Nelson took place in Accra, Ghana, to address the ongoing “dumsor” crisis. The demonstration started at the University of Ghana and ended at the Tetteh Quarshie Roundabout, with marchers carrying kerosene-powered lanterns to symbolize their plight.

However, the protest has sparked controversy, with some questioning whether the demonstration was necessary, given the current stability of electricity in the country. While some argue that the protest was a necessary wake-up call for the government to address the lingering power supply issues, others believe that the situation has improved significantly compared to previous years.

The debate raises questions about the true state of Ghana’s power supply and whether the DumsorMustStop protest was a justified response to a persistent problem or an overreaction to a perceived issue. As the conversation continues, one thing is clear: the demonstration has brought attention to the importance of a reliable power supply and the need for sustained efforts to ensure consistent electricity delivery in Ghana.
