Apart from the devastating economic impact of the current power rationing that has bedeviled the country, the situation is also giving some Ghanaians trauma, psychologically.
Popularly known as ‘Dumsor’, Ghana is running a load management scheme by which large segments of the populace endure power cuts for 24 hours and enjoy power for the next 12 hours. This routine, according to managers of the power system, is in view of shortfalls in power generation.
Several celebrities, including Chris Attoh, Wanlov the Kubolor and Lydia Forson, have complained bitterly about ‘Dumsor’, which has found its way onto Wikipedia.
The latest celebrity to join the fray is award winning actress, Ama K Abebrese, who even though is currently living in London, is being haunted by the load shedding.
According to her, the psychological impact of ‘Dumsor’ keeps prompting her to charge her phone in case the lights go off.
“#Dumsor is so normal to me now that even though I am in London, I keep thinking to charge my phone in case the lights go off,” she tweet.
Meanwhile the government has assured Ghanaians that efforts are being made to end the power crisis.
