Ghanaians emptying mobile money wallets; Ghana is back to cash system - Joselyn Dumas.


April 1, 2022

Ghanaian actress Joselyn Dumas lamented the death of digitalization in Ghana after the contentious E-levy was passed into law yesterday.


Joselyn Dumas ignited a discussion on Twitter after she obsessed with the fate of the digitization agenda in the country. In a tweet that has more than 500 retweets and remarks, she revealed that many Ghanaians might turn to cash transfers by hand rather than electronic transactions.


She expressed her plight in the screenshot below:


Joselyn Dumas additionally depicted the charges as ludicrous at a 1.5% expense. "The charges are ludicrous!… What???" she added.


While some Ghanaians on Twitter concur with her. Others accept that such a projection is far-get. Those in the last option bunch contend that versatile cash exchanges will be unaffected because individuals will constantly choose convenience.

Meanwhile, Joselyn Dumas isn’t the only industry player who is against the passage of the E-levy bill. Some, even before its passage have kicked against it. However, there are a few who hoped that the monies that will be collected, will be used for the right purposes.


Comedian Warris for instance, only prayed government fulfills its promises of using the revenue gained from taxing Mobile Money transactions to develop the country and eradicate the economic challenges.
