Report has confirmed the murder of Jovonel Moïse this morning as at about 1:00am by a group of assailants, this was disclosed by Haitan prime Minister, Claude Joseph.
According to the official statement, Claude Joseph spoke in Spanish and has not released any further details.
The first lady Martine Moïse was also injured during the attack, Infoxclusive learned.
Claude Joseph’s statement reads; “A group of individuals who have not been identified, some of whom were speaking Spanish, attacked the private residence of the President of the Republic and fatally injured the Head of State.”
Recall that earlier this year bitter unrest erupted in the Cabribbean nation, with protestors demanding the resignation of the 53 years old Mr. Moïse.
The thousands of demonstrators questioned the president’s legitimacy, as they say his five-year term should have ended on February, 7, 2021 – five years to the day since his predecessor Michel Martelly stepped down.
But Mr Moïse, however, insists he has one more year to serve as he did not take office until 7 February 2017.
The year-long delay was caused by allegations of electoral fraud which eventually saw the result of the 2015 election being annulled and fresh polls being held, which were won by Mr Moïse.
