Information reaching GhanaCelebrities.Com has it that actress-Yvonne Nelson who recently championed the #DumsorMustStop campaign has had her electricity disconnected for the reason that, she was not paying her bills and was also using illegal connection….
Apparently, ECG has disconnected the entire RED ROW Estate where Yvonne Nelson recent took a mortgage and currently lives for illegal connection.
Though unconfirmed, GhanaCelebrities.Com is told that, Yvonne Nelson bypassed air conditions which take more power and therefore charges, just to be paying her bulbs all this long….
For now, the criminal aspect of this situation is obvious as stealing electricity supply in Ghana is a crime. But the true question is; is this just an Yvonne Nelson witch-hunt or is Electricity Company of Ghana just doing their jobs?
If ECG is just doing their jobs, why did they take this long to spot this illegal connection—and why certainly immediately after the #DumsorMustStop Vigil?
According to ECG, illegal connection “occurs when the customer connects electricity supply to his premises without a meter.”
In the past, ECG has mentioned that the company loses millions of dollars a year as result of illegal connections—which affects the ability of the company to operate efficiently and as such illegal connection is somewhat part of the reasons why Ghanaians suffer power outages.
The important question is; why is Yvonne Nelson or her estate management people not paying the right electricity bills—if this is in whole the truth?
We reached out to Yvonne Nelson on her number ending 939—but we are yet to get a reaction.
A few days ago, editor of GhanaCelebrities.Com-Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri lashed out at Yvonne Nelson, saying, in his estimation, Yvonne Nelson is no different from the corrupt politicians who have pushed Ghana into the Dumsor mess—for the fact that, she cunningly started using the #DumsorMustStop hashtag specifically created for the Dumsor campaign for self gains, the promotion of her new movie…
Chris-Vincent wrote; “As much as I am not a big fan of Yvonne Nelson, I defended such arguments and tagged them as mere speculations. But today, I feel ashamed because Yvonne Nelson is doing exactly what these actresses highlighted and said she would do.
The actress took to twitter a few hours ago to promote her soon to be premiered movie—and had the audacity to use the hash tag #DumsorMustStop in that tweet.
What this means is that, though her movie has nothing to do with the DumsorMustStop campaign, she is stealing or abusing the #DumsorMustStop hash tag for personal gains. It’s this same cunning act, dishonesty and opportunist conduct by our leaders which has fetched us this Dumsor.
Offline, this is the same as being given a State car for a state responsibility and then at night, you turn it into a taxi for your own financial gains.
It’s insulting to all of us who supported the campaign and made the hash tag popular for Yvonne Nelson to turn around and use it in such a dishonest way to promote her movie…”
