I have always lamented the fact that we do not have honest, capable, competent, and honest people at the head of government.

We finally get one, one who is not in government because he needs job or money but because he is serious about managing the country back to respectability.

What do we do?

we force him

I am so sad and very disappointed that Laurent Lamothe is leaving along with his ministers.

I felt so safe going back and forth to Haiti.

I have been in Haiti for the last three and a half years with an ong. Been here a lot over last twenty years.

More has been accomplished under martelly.

lamothe than all the administrations put together including papa doc. Clinton is right saying Haiti fe aksidan by pushing lamothe out. What or who is going to replace him. Now we will see what the loudmouth manifesters do. Why couldn't they have waited for martelly to finish his term. This is stupid and sad. And what was the real motivation behind it?

Here's Haiti biggest problem, the majority never stand ups to claim what theirs and what they really want, the let the minority decide for them. Do you know why " Paske se vagabon ki fe manifestation " moun debyen gadel nan TV " tthey would rather seat home and say "this is wrong " that is why we're falling behind.

We all have to stand up to fight for what we believe, because " force se nan l'union li

Se kouliya la malare ak malerez apwal rele mize nan peyi sa. Jan Ayiti gen kreten nan gouvenans, kreten nan administre, kreten nan bay sevis pou moun. Mapwal founi jem poum gade saltenbank.

Ayiti pa gen dwa gen yon Premie Minis tankou Laurent Lamothe
