There are 25 houses that suffered damage from these heavy rains. There are also 2 thousand 260 houses flooded with water, Captain, still according to the civil protection of the country of Haiti.

We ask everyone, who lives in difficult areas during the rains, to follow all the safety advice given by civil protection. We bow down to the families of people who lost their lives in landslides caused by heavy rains that continue to fall, such as in the northern department of Haiti. The government is taking all measures to help the parents of the victims. It is the promise of the President’s Council for the transition in an official note.

On the night of Friday 3rd to Saturday 4th May 2024, 4 prisoners were shot dead and 8 other prisoners escaped from the civil prison of Pódpè, Northwest department. All police stations of the North-West department are on alert to arrest 8 prisoners, who escaped. This is what the police spokesperson of the Northwest department, divisional inspector Leonel Joseph, said in a meeting with the press on Saturday, May 4, 2024.

On Saturday, May 4, 2024, the national police arrested Mabial, the Southeast department of Haiti, Jean Louis-Jeune, better known as Blan, who would be in alliance with gangs and weapons that are sowing terror in Maryani and Kafou commune, on the way the national number 2. The police found in his hands an amount of 113 thousand 500 gourds. Jean Louis-Jeune, whose name is Blan, would be in charge of taking money from the driver of public transportation, crossing Mariani, according to the police.

The national police said it managed to unlock the large gas storage of the Vare Terminal, in Site Solê, gangs and guns were blocked again with large vehicles, since Monday, April 22, 2024. The national police said that they have blocked many holes and removed the barricades, gangs and weapons that were placed to prevent the passage of trucks filling up gas at the Vare Terminal, Site Solê.

Joe Biden’s government has authorized the release of 60 million US dollars to purchase military equipment and materials, to encourage the national police and the Haitian army to face the gangs and their weapons. This amount of money must allow the purchase of 110 armored cars, surveillance drones, rifles for specialists who know how to shoot properly (people called snipers). The multinational mission, which is supposed to be deployed on the territory of Haiti, will also have to use these materials. This is what the US newspaper Politico, citing an official document of the US government, reported.

On Friday, May 3, 2024, another US military plane landed at the international airport of Port-au-Prince again. This plane landed with people, who have a contract with the US Department of Defense to build space, where the multinational security mission will be established on the territory of Haiti. This is what the US newspaper Miami Heraald reported.

It would be on Thursday, May 23, 2024, that the first group of Kenyan policemen should arrive, as part of the deployment of multinational forces to improve security in Haiti. The United States government would begin to prepare space, which should welcome the police and military coming within the multinational force to improve security in the country of Haiti, according to the available information.

The monitoring office of the August 30, 2021 agreement, better known as the Montana agreement, requires 2 members who do not have the right to vote in the decision of the President’s Council for the transition, where they will play the role of observer, to be transmitted to all sectors, with delegates inside The council, the minutes of the session on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, when there was supposed to be an election to choose a coordinator of the president’s action for the transition. Montana’s agreement monitoring office asks the 2 observer members to make public what they saw in the process, which corresponded to what was written in the agreement of April 3, 2024, signed by all sectors.

We are surprised to see how the members of the President’s Council for the transition, which was installed on Thursday, April 25, 2024, fell into tears, instead of working quickly to alleviate the suffering of the population. They fell apart, while several sectors and political parties joined together to set up the President’s Council for the transition. With great sadness, we see the political and economic elite refuse to work together. On the contrary, they let their bodies open, gangs and weapons, expensive life, poverty are ravaging the population. Members of the President’s Council for the transition and the sectors must continue to work together, to fulfill the duties of the patriots to the country of Haiti and take their responsibilities to each other to the people. It is the consideration of the United Haiti political party, led by Jean Clarens Renois. The United Haiti political party, which is part of the January 30, 2023 collective that recently said they have set up a majority bloc that no one can break, said that it pointed with all its might to the behavior of the left-wing, unscrupulous and unconscionable political parties, actors and sectors that want to sow hing hang in the middle of the President’s Council for the transition, to serve their own interests.
