'Yvonne Nelson‘s residence hasn’t been disconnected'

The management of the Redrow estate in Accra has denied rumours on social media that power supply has been cut to the residence of actress Yvonne Nelson.

Reports are rife on social media particularly, Facebook that state power distributor- the electricity company of Ghana (ECG) Sunday cut power to the residence of the actress for illegal connection.

But a statement signed by the Chief Executive of the estate Christopher Aryeetey said the rumours about their client’s indebtedness to the ECG are false.

“We would like to state that the assertion and reports that the entire redrow estate has been disconnected is not true.

“Further, electricity supply to our client Yvonne Nelson who is a resident and the focus of the media stories has not been disconnected as reported. We would like to further add that our property is properly metered.

“As a company we do not condone illegal use of electricity,” portions of the statement noted.

Ms. Nelson recently led a mammoth vigil against the power crisis which has engulfed the country for the past three years.
