Friday dawn ‘dumsor’ elicits social media reaction from Ghanaians


Thousands of Ghanaians took to Facebook and Twitter to complain about unannounced power outages in parts of the country early Friday, May 22, 2020.

It is not clear the exact areas the power outages, known popularly as dumsor, hit, however, commentators on social media mentioned that they experienced the outage in communities located within the Greater Accra, Western, Ashanti, and Central regions.

Some of the comments poked fun at the timing of the power cut while others vent their anger at the discomfort caused by the situation.

#GHToday after the energy minister Peter Amewu told Ghanaians that the @NAkufoAddo government had cleared all arrears owed #ECG to the extent of a credit balance of about GhC 500 million, the good old people at #ECG decide to throw the whole #Ghana into dumsor. Clap for them.
