The woes of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) seem not over as many are not able to load their prepaid credit.

It can be recalled that in September, the systems of the power company were shut down for weeks as customers struggled to buy power from ECG offices and vending points.

During that challenging period, there were allegations that the ECG system had been hacked.

While the company explained that it is unable to confirm or deny the allegation, it promised that investigations will be conducted to get to the bottom of the matter.

However, today, Friday, November 11, it appears the problem has resurfaced. Many people who have tried to buy power from vending points were unable.

A visit by the Modernghana Team to the Achimota District Office of the ECG confirmed the vending challenge.

Customers who were fuming in long queues were told the system is down.

It is unclear what triggered the vending challenges.
