Dumsor ‘a dirge of the death of the elephant’ – Sam George takes swipe at government

Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Sam George, has alluded to the political cost of the ongoing power crisis, popularly referred to as ‘dumsor.’

In a post on social media (April 22, 2024) the lawmaker referred to dumsor among others as “A sting in the tale. A nail in the casket. A dirge of failure. An irrefutable lived experience.”

He also cryptically added that the state of affairs had exposed the government’s mismanagement of the power sector.

A sting in the tale. A nail in the casket. A dirge of failure. An irrefutable lived experience.

Spin, spun, span. The centre can no longer hold. The air has blown, and the anus of the fowl is on display.

A dirge of the death of the elephant.

The ‘dumsor’ palava

As far back as late 2023, Ghanaians in many parts of the country began experiencing incessant power cuts without warning.

These outages, which worsened in 2024, caused disruptions to businesses and the daily activities of citizens.

This has led to some citizens concluding that ‘dumsor’ is back.

The ‘dumsor’ situation in 2015 led to a massive protest which saw many celebrities including Yvonne Nelson and Prince David Osei partaking.

However, many government officials have claimed the outages are not a result of ‘dumsor’. They also insist that there was no need for a timetable.

The problem was further worsened when the Minister for Energy, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, challenged those calling for a timetable to come up with one themselves.
