#DUMSORMUSTSTOP VIGIL: I WAS TRIGGERED BY THE TEMA GENERAL HOSPITAL INCIDENT – Yvonne Nelson

In light of the devastating news of a 3-day-old baby’s death at the Tema General Hospital shortly after a power outage, actress and producer Yvonne Nelson said the incident moved her to organise the second ‘dumsor’ protest.

Ramatu, the mother of the baby, disclosed that the doctors told her that she lost her baby due to the power cut that hit the hospital on March 28, 2024.

Ghanaians did not receive the news well, as they expressed their anger towards the government and the Electricity Company of Ghana.

Speaking to the media at the protest, Yvonne Nelson shared her fear of losing a loved one to this crisis and thus felt the need to draw the government’s attention to the damage the power outages are causing in the country.

“Let me tell you why I organised it. I saw a video from Tema General Hospital. I have a condition now, so when I saw the video, it really spoke to me; it really touched me because I know that I could find myself in that position very soon.”

“I am a Ghanaian. I had my first daughter in Ghana, and I may have my future kids in Ghana, so what if it happens to me in the hospital? So, I was a little triggered when I saw that video. It is the reason I went to social media and decided to tweet about Dumsor,” she said.

The #DumsorMustStop vigil, which was slated for June 8, 2024, got the attention of some Ghanaians who were spotted at the University of Ghana, where the protest began.
