Haitian President Jovenal Moise massacred by unknown attackers in his private residence overnight in an “inhuman and cruelty act”, Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph said on Wednesday (July 7). Jovenal Moise`s spouse harmed and was receiving medical care, Joseph said in a statement.
The attack happened amid a rising wave of politically linked brutality in the poor Caribbean nation. With Haiti politically divided, and facing a growing humanitarian emergency and shortages of food, there are fears of rife disorder.
“All actions implemented to guarantee the pursuance of the state and to shield the nation,” Joseph said. Gunshots heard throughout the capital. Port-au-Prince had been agonizing about an increase in savagery as gangs fight one another and police for control of the streets.
That cruelty was incited by an increase in poverty and political anxiety. Jovenal Moise has faced fierce protests since he carried office as president in 2017, with the opposition alleging him this year of seeking to install a dictatorship by overstaying his mandate and becoming more dictatorial- charges he refuted.
