Garry Connile has shown a complete and total lack of understanding for the Haitian situation. Although he was born in Haiti, has a Haitian passport, and has never given up his citizenship, or taken dual nationality – Conille is not Haitian. We believe he is from somewhere else, perhaps Mars.
His career did not give any indications of leadership. Instead, he has spent a lifetime career as a functionary, taking orders from others, and carrying them out. Everyone wished him the best, and tried to help, but he ignored all offers, except those from the Marc Bazin clique. Even though Conille is married into the Bazin family, common sense would have led him to limit their authority in the Primature. Unfortunately, this team of idiots fill all the chairs, leaving no space for other to sit at the table.
Conille has cultivated more contacts with internationalists, who are as disconnected as he is, with regard to Haiti and its needs.
He has chosen incompetents, and criminals for economic advisors. Gabriel Verett must be one of the least useful people to sit as an advisor. Leslie Pean, while talented, is recognized as an international criminal of major proportions, if a US New and World Report story on World Bank corruption is to be believed. If it was not true, Pean would have sued them and won millions in compensation.
Conille was warned about involvement with Leslie Pean and promised to sideline him. Immediately after this promise, Conille flew to Washington for official meetings and planned an official dinner at, of all places, Pean’s Virginia estate, purchased by Pean for $2,500,000 when he was on a $50,000 per year salary as a World Bank functionary. This upset many people.
And, even as this was happening, Pean continued to claim he represented Conille in France and Spain!!!
Some unkind people suggest that Pean, and possibly others, contributed to Conille’s retirement fund in a major way. Time will tell.
Other friends of Conille tell of his pride at acquiring 3 mulatto mistresses.
My God, can’t we find someone who thinks with his mind, rather than his penis. Conille is just a mirror of Gerard Latortue who gathered ladies, and a lot of cash..
Conille was so keen to gain the Prime Minister’s position that he set no parameters before accepting the job. He originally said he required the Ministry of Planification, in order to agree to become Prime Minister. When Martelly took this off the table, Conille should have walked away. Had he done so, the Ministry of Planification would have been given to his control, and the nation could have moved forward.
Another “small man” of limited capabilities for a big job. Bill Clinton, and the Americans, have a great deal of responsibility in this present fiasco.
Conille was seen as a Clinton lap dog and did little to prove this untrue.
The disappointing person – Garry Conille – has played Haiti right into the hands of Aristide and his associates.
Good riddance! Go back to your internationalist friends, if they will accept you after this monumental failure.
