In Ghana, dumsor is an Akan word meaning 'off and on'. Dumsor is a persistent, irregular, and unpredictable electric power outages in Ghana. Most, the frequent Ghanaian blackouts are caused by power supply shortage.
The term dumsor is derived from two separate words from the Asante Twi, the Akuapem Twi or Fante dialects of the Akan language. Here…dum means 'to turn off or quench', whiles sɔ also means to turn on; and so the term dumsor is roughly translated as "off-and-on".
Meanwhile, Dr. Mattew Opoku Prempeh has stated that, the Current power cuts in parts of the country is not the Mahama-kind of dumsor; and has urged Ghanaians to be patient with the engineers who are currently embarking on maintenance work, which has resulted in power cuts to some parts of the country.
According to Dr. Mattew Opou Prempeh; in “2016, the government of the day told us it was a generation problem but according to him, this current power outages in the country is not dumsor.
He added that, the current power outages cannot be called Dumsor because it is not about fuel, so how can it be dumsor?
If the current power outages in some parts of the country cannot be called dumsor…then how do we call it?
