9:52 am LlegÃ³ la primera dama Martine Moise al funeral de su esposo Jovenel. Los organizadores del evento habÃan hecho una tumba especial pero ella se habrÃa negado a usarlo y pidiÃ³ que lo enterraran en el lugar que la familia habÃa dispuesto al lado del padre. @HaitianTimes_pic.twitter.com/o68myR99ig
After Haitian officials arrived at the funeral many started pointing towards them and blamed them for the President’s killing.
“You didn’t take any measures to save Jovenel! You contributed to his killing!” a woman shouted pointing at Haitian officials.
Another man, who seemed to be one of Moises supporters, threatened Haiti’s National Police Chief Leon Charles.
“You need to leave now or we’re going to get you after the funeral!” said the man.
“They took his life, but they can’t take his memories. They can’t take his brain. They can’t take his ideas. We are Jovenel Moise,” said a priest who presided over the ceremony.
Haiti is in turmoil since Haitian President Jovenel Moise was shot to death in his residence on July 7, the First Lady Martine Moise was wounded. A total of 26 Colombians are suspected of the killing. Moise had tapped Ariel Henry to replace Joseph Claude as PM in the days before his assassination.
