Haiti’s Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe held two private meetings with Bishop Pierre André Dumas, who criticized President Jovenel Moïse during a sermon, and with Bishop Eugène Martin Nugent on Sept. 18 and Sept. 22 in Pétion-Ville, Port-au-Prince.

“Haiti turned into a disaster under Jovenel Moïse’s regime,” Bishop Dumas said during his sermon Sept. 14. “It’s gotten to the point that we have to say no to any sort of dictatorship in the country.”

Jouthe chose not to get into the details of the meeting when asked by Juno7. Dumas is the representative of the Catholic Church in the Nippes Department. Nugent is the dean of the diplomatic corps of the Holy See. Source

  1. Haitians must change tactics to find the changes that we’re dreaming of for too long we’re being bambozoo by some weak so-called leaders who have no plans, no dreams ,no agendas for the sake of this noviste nation who never stop taking the street to protest ; but end up with the same results of not receiving the fruits of their hard labor ;and it’s getting worse up to this point now. Stop blaming the international agency, our senseless actions of putting aside our culture ,by not Honoring our Ancestors, abandon our Spirituality, agriculture is of the past , unity and mutual respect these are keeping us in this situation of slavery mentality.
    We must take a 360 degree turn with a new mentality , determination and objective to reconstruct our mind, spirit and soul by inspiring to our unity just like our ancestors who organized themselves,rise up in the most difficult circumstances and hardships of all sort just to free us from the bondage of the oppressors.
    We cannot wait The time is now!
