Frequent power cuts in parts of the country over the last six weeks especially in Kumasi the Ashanti Regional capital is stirring fears that Ghana may be returning to the dreaded period of a persistent, irregular, and unpredictable electric power outage – popularly called ‘dumsor’.
Over the last weeks, Accra and Kumasi have been hit the hardest by the unannounced intermittent power cuts.
Many residents who have described the development as unbearable are asking whether Ghana is heading back to ‘Dumsor’”
This has led to several complaints against Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), who have in turn blamed Gridco for the situation.
According to some aggrieved residents who spoke to Happy FM’s correspondents in the region, Jimmy Cliff, “it’s better to have a timetable for the power rationing if ‘dumsor’ is back.”
Meanwhile, The Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi will be the host city for this year’s Independence Day celebration.
The event which will be held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on 6th March 2020 is to mark the 63rd anniversary since Ghana attained independence.
This will be the second time the event will be held outside Accra after it was held in the Northern Region in 2019 and the city is currently facing frequent power outages problem.
