Actress Yvonne Nelson has brushed off questions over why she hasn’t held a demonstration against dumsor under NPP as she did during the NDC era.
According to her, the dumsor which occurred during the NDC era was far more intense than the current one and was collapsing businesses which forced her to the streets.
Speaking on Hitz Fm, she said whilst there’s currently dumsor it doesn’t rise to the level of what happened under the NDC.
Asked why she hasn’t organized a dumsor demo now as she did in the past, Nelson said she’s been complaining on twitter but she doesn’t think the dumsor has gotten to the level where a demonstration is necessary.
“I still started the same thing I started when we were having the dumsor problem during Mahama’s time. I was on twitter, tweeting about it. I didn’t hit the street because it is not serious or intense now like Mahama’s time,” Yvonne said.
“Let’s stop pretending and be truthful…People were dying at hospitals during the NDC time…It was crazy, we will go on set and use generators to shoot…people were shutting down their businesses.”
Yvonne once again debunked claims that she was paid to hold the dumsor demo during the NDC era.
“I put my life on the line, I put my career on the line. No one in the NPP or NDC paid me. They can come out and prove it if they have given me money,” she said.
