Haiti’s President Jovenel Mose was slain last week, on July 7, 2021, putting the country under a “state of siege” for the next 15 days.
All borders to Haiti have been closed, and martial law has been temporarily implemented, according to CNN, as Haiti’s military and the Haiti National Police (HNP) have been given the authority to enforce the law following the country’s unprecedented political upheaval.
Martine, Jovenel Mose’s wife, was shot and injured during the assassination attempt on her husband’s life last week, and she was sent to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami for treatment.
Haiti’s First Lady sent a voice message to the country’s Twitter followers on Sunday, in which she spoke about a painful episode she had recently endured and urged the country to keep on track.
“In the flash of an eye, the mercenaries invaded my house and shot my husband with bullets,” Martine Mose stated, according to the New York Times (who transcribed her voice message).
“True, I’m crying, but we can’t allow the country fall apart.”
She also chastised those who “want to murder the president’s dream, vision, and ideals for the country [and] do not want to see the country go through a change.”
Martine Mose has returned with a visual update on her current state, despite the fact that she is still hospitalised in Miami.
Despite the fact that she appears furious in the photo, the tweet’s content is full of appreciation.
Martine Mose remarked, “Thank you for the band of guardian angels who helped me through this horrible moment. I was able to cling on thanks to your gentle touch, kindness, and caring. Thank you very much! Thank you very much! Thank you so much!”
