Angry workers of the Avenor office of the Electricity Company of Ghana are protesting the removal of the Managing Director of the company.
The protest comes just hours after Rev. Ing. William Hutton-Mensah was relieved of his position.
A statement signed by the Chief of Staff, Prosper Bani said Robert Dwamena will be acting in that capacity.
Hutton-Mensah, who is on leave, is to report to the Energy Ministry for reassignment.
The decision to sack the out-going MD has angered some workers of the ECG.
The workers, particularly those in the Avenor office are hoisting red flags with banners demanding the reinstatement of Hutton-Mensah.
The dismissal of the MD, and the protests for his reinstatement, are new twists to what has become a volatile sector.
In the wake of the protracted load shedding regime the country has suffered in recent times, ECG officials have been easy targets to angry, sometimes, violent protestations by residents in Accra and Kumasi.
Over the weekend residents of Tabora and Odorkor all in Accra took to the streets, blocked roads and threatened to attack officials of the ECG.
It took the intervention of the police and the military to restore calm in the area.
On Friday, it was the turn of the Kumasi residents to take to the streets.
It is not clear yet if the dismissal of Hutton-Mensah has anything to do with the protracted load shedding exercise across the country.
