Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions of people in South Africa and around the world.
Since Aristide’s time, foreigners have paid over 75% of the cost of elections in Haiti. This means we must pay attention when the U.S. ambassador says elections cannot be held this year and there is no money for separate ones during 2013-15.
They somehow see stability emerging from this alternance, as well as fewer elections to pay for. They reckon, however, without these parties’ penchant for violence.
U.S. is poorly led and represented in Haitian affairs. Haitians abroad are not yet united in caring for Haiti nor have they yet become a counterforce to poor governance. All this conditions the outlook for reparations.
