Yvonne Nelson and Co Meet Police Over Dumsor Demo

A meeting between the Accra Police Command, Yvonne Nelson and two others is scheduled to take place today, May 15, 2024, over plans to protest against erratic power supply across the country.

In a letter to the convenors of the protest, the Regional Commander, DCOP Arhin Kwasi Annor, called the meeting to discuss the modalities of the protest.

“In view of the above, the Regional Commander invites you (conveners) to a meeting in his office on Wednesday 15/05/2024 at 1400 hours to discuss modalities pertaining to your intended demonstration,” a part of the letter read.

Yvonne took to social media to rally support to protest against the government for unstable power supply to homes and businesses last month after a team she staged a similar demonstration with, in 2015 expressed disinterest in repeating under the current political administration.

In a statement on April 30, 2024, she expressed her concern about the trend which is taking a toll on businesses, describing it as “alarming”.

She said she had tried to no avail to mobilise key players who partook in the demo years back.

“In light of these troubling developments, I have taken to social media to reach out to Imani Ghana, who supported the initial DumsorMustStop Campaign, to explore the possibility of organizing another vigil. We must come together once again to demand accountability and action from our leaders.

“I am aware that since the 2015 campaign, some individuals including Kofi Bentil who supported us on the legal front from Imani Ghana have now aligned themselves with the current government. However, the fight against Dumsor transcends political affiliations, and we must unite as Ghanaians to address this pressing issue…I have reached out to key individuals from Imani Ghana, including Kofi Bentil and Franklin Cudjoe via WhatsApp text, but I am yet to receive a response regarding their interest in supporting another vigil.”

Currently, she has attracted the support of political activist Selorm Dramani Dzramado and a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Henry Osei Akoto.
