Local and international media agencies took keen interest in the in the hyped #dumsormuststop vigil organised by some celebrities in Ghana championed by actress Yvonne Nelson over the frequent power cuts and this was how the various media houses reported the mammoth crowed that poured on the street to support the celebrities.

With thousands gathered at the Tetteh Quarshie Roundabout brandishing their lanterns, candles participants waited patiently for organisers to share their dumsor experiences. The lights have illuminated the stretch at the Tetteh Quarshie in a rather unique way.

Some protesters carried fridges all the way from Legon, the starting point of the vigil to Tetteh Quarshie. The procession has affected vehicular traffic from the Legon to Accra end of the road.

The chants were on; the crowd thicks as the clock ticks. The vigil proceeded slowly to the end point at Tetteh Quarshie where organisers shared their dumsor experiences.

Clad in black with red arm bands, the thousands marched from their designated start point at the  Old Legon Gate amidst heavy police presence to their end point.
