Widespread dumsor hits Ghana

Several parts of Ghana are currently without electricity.

Parts of Upper West, Kumasi, Bono Region, Bono East Region, Ahafo Region, Central Region, Eastern Region among other areas are without light.

Ghanaians in affected areas have already taken to social media to express concerns.

It is currently unclear what is to blame for the outages as authorities are yet to issue an official statement on the matter.

Checks by Citi News across a number of regions indicate that the lights went off around 7 p.m. on Friday, September 8, 2023.

The Chamber of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in June had threatened to cut the supply of power to Ghanaians over billions of Cedis debt accrued by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

But the ECG honoured its pledge in August and settled debts to all Independent Power Producers (IPPs) for the months of June and July
