“La honte!” Clarens Renois appeals for Gov’t to Censor Fmr President Martelly

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – “If there is a Ministry of Communication and Culture and a Ministry for Youth in Haiti, they must censor Michel Martelly and forbid him on stage. It would be for the good of youth.” This is the call launched on Facebook Tuesday night by Clarens Renois, former candidate for president, who took offense to an over-the-weekend performance by the former president, who was back in full musician form, during the Jelly Festival in Aux Cayes.

“To denigrate a journalist, to humiliate a parliamentarian, to treat the woman with contempt, makes us want to vomit! Shame! Mr. Renois, a journalist and editor-in-chief in his own right, spoke on the performance of the former president at the Jelly Festival in Les Cayes, last month, on August 19, 2017.

The leader of the National Union for Integrity and Reconciliation (UNIR) political party also expressed doubts that authorities would consider his appeal. “The man is powerful,” he admitted. Former president of the republic – I feel embarrassed to repeat it, but it is a historical reality – the musician is very followed, it drains the crowds (the electorate).” He lamented that Martelly still holds the “respect of churches, the admiration of a part of the youth and the assured support of the money powers.”
