09:30 Duvalier has left the hospital for home. Hundreds gathered in hospital grounds, and outside to cheer their President. The road from the hospital, through Petionville,and up the Kenscoff road to his house in Thomasin was blocked by crowds of people wanting to see him. Duvalier’s popularity is seen as a threat. Because of this, Preval has placed him under house arrest in an effort to reduce his positive impact.
Duvalier is in danger because he is now seen as the Hope for Haiti’s future.
