My phone was hacked during dumsor must stop campaign – Yvonne Nelson

Popular Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has revealed that her mobile handset was hacked and spied on during her #Dumsormuststop campaign of 2015.

The campaign, which was to call for an end to Ghana’s energy crisis at the time, saw Miss Nelson lead some known Ghanaian faces for series of calls on and offline, with an eventual walk on May 16, 2015 to drum home their point.

A year on, Miss Nelson has spoken of some of the challenges she faced as leader of the campaign, which was largely successful.

In an interview with Kweku Sakyi Addo on his Friday night show on Starr FM, The Lounge, Miss Nelson said her phone was hacked by persons who thought her crusade was bad news.

The revelation drew a surprise cut on the face of Sports Minister Nii Lantey Vanderpuije, who was also on the show, suggesting to her it’s false her phone was hacked.

Miss Nelson rebutted and insisted she wouldn’t make up the claim.

A year after calls grew for an end to the situation, the country is back at grappling with power issues. Subtly, there is an ongoing unannounced power rationing exercise.

There have been calls for a definite time table. Officialdom is yet to respond, but have rather blamed it on unfulfilled partner promises of key energy generations inputs.
