Did you listen to his radio Interview this morning?

Marie Lucie was not too about the part of the text where Heriveaux called the opposition "Ces Cafards" (These Cockroaches)

The text translates to this:

"In a kind of destructive frenzy, these cockroaches are agitated in a disgusting folklore in the streets to try to leap to power. A sad spectacle almost daily, symptomatic of stupidity of some political retrograde, frozen in the old-fashioned and old demagogic practices that have done so much damage to our country..."

This minister exemplifies the "obscurantism of the Duvalier years at its best".

We should thank the likes thereof on the political stage and in positions power over the last 60 years for having given as result the Haiti of today.

1954-2014, and the more the people of the world progress, the more Haitians

The Police Chief: Godson Orelus has to find very strong chemical to spray these Cockroaches in the manifestation and make sure police spray all of them who participate in the manifestation and make sure these big Cockroaches destroy within one or two months forever.

More they come, more you spray them until we don't have anymore, until no more to steal people's container in (La douane), until no more in EDH etc.
