President Jovenel Residence Pelerin 5
Haiti First Lady Martine Moise visit her neighbors, the victims of Pelerin 5 whose houses were torn down (VIDEO)
Haitian First Lady Martine Moise visited her neighbors Pelerin 5 on July 27 2018, the neighbors houses whose house were torn down earlier in the month and who blamed president Jovenel Moise for that happened.
Watch the video as the first lady walked on foot in the neighborhood of Pelerin 5 to meet some of the neighbors.
Martine Mose says: back in 2012 the government knocked down these houses, recently it happened again except this time, the opposition turned it to their advantage by saying it's President Jovenel Moise who sent people to do this because president Jovenel Moise does not want poor people around him.
"Me and the president are from the countryside," Martine Moise said, "I am from Andro outside Chansolme and the president is from Trou-du-Nord so what sence does it make for people like us to say we don't want poor people around us? We come from the lower class (klas pòv la)."
"It is the poor who voted for my husband to become president and that's why today I can call myself First Lady. If they have a problem I have to help them. that's why today I made time to come see what is happening."
