Jah love. I think that this decision is bad news for Ayiti and her people.

And I am very concerned that if she wins a seat in the parliament, she will commit more criminal acts that will undermine the self determination of the people and push the nation state of Ayiti into deeper problems.

May Jah help us. Blessed
