‘Dumsor’ is as a result of faulty machines – Prince David Osei

Ghanaian actor Prince David Osei delved into the ongoing intermittent power outages (dumsor) in Ghana.

Osei, known for his activism during the #DumsorMustStop campaign in 2015, where he was a prominent figure challenging the John Dramani Mahama administration, spoke candidly about the current power challenges.

Attributing the outages to faulty machinery this time, Osei acknowledged that many Ghanaians, including himself, have experienced these disruptions, stating, “We all felt it.”

Drawing a comparison with a recent power outage incident in Toronto, Canada, Osei emphasized that the root cause of Ghana’s power woes lies in malfunctioning equipment owned by power suppliers and distributors.

He highlighted a publication from the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) claiming a stable national power supply and attributing outages to ‘localised faults,’ urging for improved communication from ECG to notify affected citizens about potential outages in the future.

“The whole of downtown Toronto, Canada, went off recently. There was a blackout. So once you are dealing with equipment, you are dealing with machines, and things can fail,” Prince David Osei stated.

The actor’s insights shed light on the technical challenges contributing to Ghana’s power interruptions and underscored the importance of proactive communication from authorities to manage public expectations during such times.
