Yvonne Nelson receives abusive calls over dumsor campaign

Actress Yvonne Nelson has started receiving abusive phone calls from people who appear to be unenthused by her #dumsormuststop campaign.

After a government communicator recently referred to the actress and her other female colleagues championing the anti-power outage campaign as “prostitutes” on social media, Nelson has posted on social media, a recording of an unknown male individual, who yelled abusive words on her on the phone.

The caller kept referring to the actress as a prostitute.

The actress also wrote on her Facebook wall that the caller, who she regarded as a “leader” imputed political motivations for her decision to speak out against the worsening power crisis.

“Unfortunately, he had said so much before I started recording him, chanting about how Akufo-Addo can never be president”.

Meanwhile, the actress and her team are collecting emails from citizens who have interesting stories to tell about their ‘dumsor’ experience.

Yvonne Nelson, Lydia Forson and Sarkodie, on social media, have been leading the #DumsorMustStop campaign to get President John Mahama and his government to fix the current energy crisis.

They have served notice to the police to organise a vigil on May 16 to protest against the power situation.
