Just under a week ago, we woke to the news that the President of Haiti and his wife were shot in their home in the middle of the night. The President succumbed to his injuries and the First Lady of Haiti, Martine Moïse, remains hospitalized in Florida.
In typical fashion following the removal of a leader in Haiti, multiple actors are vying for the nation’s leadership at this time. Each having their own story claiming rightful ascension to the Presidency. As the story continues to unfold, we are using our Twitter feed to post pertinent news stories and updates. Be sure to follow Heartline on Twitter (@heartlinehaiti).
While there is much to learn and discuss regarding how it came to this point, we join the international community in declaring that loss of life and acts of violence are never the solution. We offer our deepest condolences to those who are mourning this violent act.
