Actress Yvonne Nelson has disclosed that here in Ghana, people are more or less afraid to speak the truth, and she is wondering why.
Talking about her Dumsor Must Stop campaign, she said,
“Who wasn’t suffering when we had issues with our power crisis…people were dying, people were suffering…business were closing down so it was really surprising when I saw these comments and people bashing [me],
The actress noted that she believes the flaks came from “…People in the NDC, it was just a party thing…” even though she had no political agenda because she had to put even her family on the line.
“After my campaign, people were threatening me, did the NPP give me security? Did they give me policemen to guard my house? I could not sleep at home it was that bad. Where was the NPP when my life was in danger?” Yvonne Nelson quizzed.
To her, the #dumsormuststop vigil “was nonpartisan…anyone could have just shot me in the crowd” during the demonstration.
“Speaking the truth is so hard in this country, why is that so? That’s my problem…”
