MOTHER’S DAY MAY 27, 2018
In Haiti – perhaps more than most other countries, Mother’s Day is a very special moment in which Haitians do something for their Mom.
The economy is in desperate condition as people live from hand-to-mouth, unless you are a drug dealer, Cabinet Minister, Senator or Deputy.
Some mothers are more desperate than others.
Christmas and Easter were dismal moments in a dismal situation. Mother’s Day was looked to as a change of pace.
Within the government, and circles expecting payment via government checks, there has been a great wave of disappointment when these checks, already prepared and waiting for distribution, were withheld until after Sunday May 27th Mother’s Day has passed.
Even people within the Finance Ministry didn’t get their checks.
Was this just a case of gross stupidity or is someone, within the Palace Infrastructure, trying to embarrass President Jovenel Moise. The President’s Chief of Cabinet, Wilson Laleau, should investigate this and fire those responsible.
We are not optimistic.
Our President has enough trouble, with the visible opposition, without being challenged by internal problems, created by people who should owe him, and the Nation, their loyalty.
Unfortunately, Loyalty in Haiti has a price and it is usually measured in American $100 bills.
And, as President Moise heads to Taiwan, for a State business, the Powers of Darkness are planning a major demonstration that will tie up the Port-au-Prince area – TOTALLY – at midnight Sunday, as the 2018 Mother’s Day passes into memory.
Just another element in a well-coordinated movement t destabilize the Jovenel Moise government and, along with it, the Nation.
Another time-bomb waiting to initiate a far larger explosion.
Sadly, many of the destabilizing elements can be found within the confines of our National Palace, on a daily basis. Some collect their monthly checks from our treasury.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
