The actress in 2015 led thousands of people in a demonstration dubbed #Dumsormuststop vigil against the Mahama administration over erratic power supply in the country.

However, in an interview on Hitz FM, Yvonne explained that the demonstration was necessary because the dumsor was so intense at Ex-President John Mahama’s era.

According to her, the same cannot be said about what Ghanaians are experiencing now with President Akufo Addo’s led-government.

“I still started the same thing I started when we were having the dumsor problem during Mahama’s time. I was on twitter, tweeting about it. I didn’t hit the street because it is not serious or intense now like Mahama’s time. Let’s stop pretending and be truthful…People were dying at hospitals during the NDC time…It was crazy, we will go on set and use generators to shoot…people were shutting down their businesses. I started the hashtags but it didn’t get the attention from people,” she stated.

She shot down rumours that she was paid by the NPP government to keep quiet when they came to power.

“I put my life on the line, I put my career on the line. No one in the NPP or NDC paid me. They can come out and prove it if they have given me money,” she added

Yvonne Nelson disclosed that she received a lot of death threats after the dumsor must stop vigil some years ago.
