93116086The Ministry of Power has announced an end
to load shedding in a statement released on
Wednesday December 30. The announcement
is timely and significant as Ghanaians were
eagerly looking forward to the resignation of
the Power Minister Dr. Kwabena Donkor, who had repeatedly promised to resign by the end
of the year if load shedding or ‘dumsor’
persists. It is however unclear what this
announcement means considering that the
Power Minister recently gave different
meanings to dumsor and load shedding. In his view, load shedding occurs when there is
inadequate power and so consumers share
what is available. He said dumsor which he
explained as intermittent outages, is caused by
technical faults which can happen at any time
and cannot always be controlled. In essence, he sought to say that he promised to end load
shedding and not dumsor. Therefore if his
explanation is anything to go by, the latest
announcement would mean that Dr. Kwabena
Donkor has fulfilled his promise a day to
January 2016.
