A witch doctor Kwaku Bonsam has cursed the hierarchy of state-owned power distributor Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and all those in charge of Ghana’s energy sector.
The enraged traditional priest has invoked his god – ‘Kofi Kofi’ – and God to cast a spell on officials, especially those at ECG, for enjoying power at their homes since they can afford to buy generator sets or plants while the poor sweat in darkness and struggle to sleep at midnight due to the erratic power situation [dumsor].
The dare-devil fetish priest, known in private life as Stephen Osei-Mensah, condemned the “animal farm” way of living in the era of ‘dumsor’ and has called on his deity and God to fight on behalf of the poor.
“All the ECG bosses and ministers who are enjoying light with generator sets while mosquitoes continue to bite the poor ones in this era of blackouts, God should curse them – they should have bulged bellies,” the US-based priest said in a latest video on his official Facebook wall.
The shaman is calling on President John Dramani Mahama to transfer all the regional heads of ECG, a move he believes will help improve the worsening power situation.
“There should be a reshuffle at ECG. The regional directors must be transferred. The one at Wa should be transferred to Tema, the Accra boss should be moved to the Ashanti region; transfer every ECG head to effect changes.
“They can’t continue to sleep in light with their wives, cronies and families while the rest of us sleep in darkness. We must all sleep in darkness,” the ‘Wednesday Devil’ declared.
