Last week, Haiti’s Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe traveled to United States in what he called an official trip, although what defines an “official” trip for the current Haitian government is unclear. During his entire trip, the prime minister’s staff tweeted the details of his travels and speeches, making it obvious through the interaction with participants at various events that he is completely out of touch with the real situation in the country.
The way the Lamothe describes Haiti today is false and it is dangerous for the country. The propaganda being peddled to support the notion that “Haiti is open for business” doesn’t match the reality. Is Lamothe incompetent or is he just a fool enjoying the privilege of being a Prime Minister in a government that is not serious about anything but getting more stamps on their passports and building their internet following?
