Elderly women in Kumasi, Ashanti Region are set to demonstrate against the erratic power crisis in the country.

The protest dubbed: “Ɛmerewa Ɛ’su” (old women are crying), is expected to draw hundreds of senior citizens.

Maame Serwaa, 74-year-old convener of the protest march, in a statement said "we the aged in the society are displeased with the magnitude of emotional and economic hardship the 'Dumsor dumsor' is having on the society, most especially the senior citizens who are supposed to be preserved and safeguarded".

'3MEREWA RESU' DEMO

After receiving countless promises from Sector Ministers, Government Communicators and even the President of the Republic John Dramani Mahama to fix and also bring to an end the ongoing erratic power supply, the menace keeps on overriding hence our decision to storm the principal streets of Kumasi come Wednesday June 24, 2015.

We the aged in the society are displeased with the magnitude of emotional and economic hardship the 'Dumsor dumsor' is having on the society, most especially the senior citizens who are supposed to be preserved and safeguarded.

Amid the NEGATIVE effect of the canker, we the aged believe we cannot sit unconcerned, therefore calling on all en sundry to support this worthy course of registering our displeasure to the global community about the mammoth effect of 'Dumsor' on the country's socio-economic development.
