Customs Director at Miragoane = $400,000, APN Director Port-au-Prince = $750,000, Director PL-480 another small fortune…and so it goes.
In a time when Haiti needs all of the good people available, to help on it stalled road to recovery, jobs are being sold for big dollars to people who plan to rape Haiti’s treasure. If someone invests $500,000 in a job he must expect to make multiples of this amount.
Incompetents can make a fortune, which will allow them to bankroll another job in the next government.
Competent people, without the cash to purchase a position, remain on the fringe, unable to help themselves, or the Nation.
It the eternal Haitian Daisy Chain.
Minister of Culture Pierre Raymond Dumas, the bag-man during Jacques Alexi’s Prime Ministership now controls a ministry’s fund. Instead of focusing on the needs of his ministry, Dumas is spreading the wealth among Deputies and Senators.
Dumas has even given cars to undeserving people.
He has forgotten friends and has become exceptionally egocentric and rude to the point that any effort to salvage some friendships, after his inevitable fall, will be impossible. But – that’s Haiti. When a guy becomes Minister – he forgets everyone.
Knowledgeable sources suggest Martelly may dump Dumas in the near future, replacing him with Chancy.
