The President of Kenya William Ruto welcomed this Wednesday, May 29, 2024 the “appointment” of Garry Conille as new Prime Minister of the Transition by the Presidential Council. Ruto says he looks forward to working with Conille and his government.

“On behalf of the Republic and people of Kenya, I extend my congratulations to Hon. @ConilleGarry, on the occasion of his appointment as Prime Minister of Haiti. This important step is not lost on the world and testifies to the desire of our brothers and sisters in Haiti to move forward,” wrote William Ruto on X this Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

Expressing his solidarity with Haiti, William Ruto said he looked forward to working with Garry Conille and his government “to put Haiti back on the path to sustainable development.” “Nap fè konfyans nan lavni,” he said in Creole.

William Ruto and Garry Conille will have to work in recent days in view of the latest directives for the deployment of the Multinational Security Support Mission in Haiti. Although the arrival is delayed for 3 weeks, the international community, particularly the American government, is working hard for the effective deployment of the first Kenyan troops.

Garry Conille, well known to the international community, was until then regional director of UNICEF.

In a publication on Twitter this Wednesday, May 29, 2024, Garry Conille reacted for the first time after his designation as Prime Minister of the Transition by the Transitional Presidential Council following a consensus reached.

“I feel very honored that the Presidential Council has chosen me as the new Prime Minister of Haiti. I would like to thank all the civil society organizations, political parties and members of the diaspora who proposed my name among the other candidates in the process,” wrote Garry Conille.

“Together, we will work for a better future for all the children of our nation,” promised the one who was prime minister under the presidency of Michel Joseph Martelly. He only served a few months at the Prime Minister’s office before submitting his resignation. Which resignation which occurred after internal tensions within the government.

According to presidential advisers, a consensus was found on the choice of Garry Conille. Beforehand, the American embassy had tweeted to clarify that it wanted “a transparent process and a personality chosen on the basis of technical merit and impartiality”. Observers believed this was thinly veiled support for the senior United Nations official.
