ECG denies releasing new load shedding timetable

A document said to be a leaked Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) load shedding timetable is trending on social media.

ECG denies releasing new load shedding timetable

The document, which has gone viral on Facebook, provides a load shedding timetable for two weeks, beginning on August 1 and ending on August 14.

It follows a renewed power crisis (dumsor) in the country, which the government has blamed on the lack of light crude oil to fire power plants.

But the ECG tweeted on Saturday morning that the document is not authentic.

Meanwhile, some workers of ECG have claimed that President John Mahama had blocked plans by the company to announce a timetable.

"What is happening in the country is not any fault in the power system, it is power rationing going on but they don’t want to admit. When people get angry, they attack workers of the ECG. So we are pleading with the president to be honest with the situation and tell Ghanaians the truth. I know for a fact that the timetable for load shedding is ready but the president has blocked it,” the chairman of the junior staff workers union of the ECG , Samuel Tetteh Agbetor, was quoted as saying.
