Haiti high ranking officials more interested in personal gain than providing service to the people

One of the biggest problems that exist in Haiti is with all these high ranking government officials who are getting paid and giving nothing back in terms of service. In Haiti, when you play someone to provide a service to the population there are more interested in providing themselves with comfort and money and anything else.

They are not there for the well-being of the population. They are more interested in their own well-being.

When someone becomes director-general of a State agency, the very first thing they look at is how comfortable they are. First, he looks to see if the couch and other office equipment in their office needs to be changed and what kind of commission he will make when he changes it.

The State vehicle that was already available to him, it is still operational; however, if he keeps it he won't make any commission. So why not buy a new one?

Off he goes to purchase another vehicle where he can get a big commission. Next next worries about how much money he's going to make while in his post.

This happens on all levels of society and all levels of the state.
