The first lady of Haiti, Martine Moise, has recounted the assassination experience on her late husband, Jovenel Moise and herself on the 7th of July, 2021.
Recall that TheNewsBeam reported that the President of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, was assassinated by a group of gunmen that invaded his private residence in Port-au-Prince in the early hours of Wednesday, July 7, 2021.
Following the assassination, wife of the late president in an interview with the New York Times in Florida, questioned how 30-50 men who usually guard her husband and family were nowhere to be seen during the attack, adding that none of the guards had any gunshot wounds or were killed during the attack.
According to the interview, Martine narrated her ordeal, disclosing that her elbow was shattered by gunfire and her mouth full of blood, as she laid on the floor beside her bed, unable to breathe, when the assassins stormed the room.
Further disclosing the moment her husband, Jovenel Moïse was shot dead beside her, she said that “The only thing that I saw before they killed him were their boots. Then I closed my eyes, and I didn’t see anything else.”
She also explained that during the attack, the late president was shot multiple times while she, even though she survived the assassination attempt might not be able to use her right arm again.
However, two Americans among at least 20 people have been detained following the assassination.
The suspects include retired Colombian commandos, a former judge, a security equipment salesman, a mortgage and insurance broker in Florida, and two commanders of the president’s security team.
Also, a 63-year-old doctor, Christian Emmanuel Sanon has been arrested for allegedly playing a central role in the death of the president.
Reports also revealed that several of the people under investigation met in the months prior to the killing to discuss rebuilding the country once the president was out of power, Haitian police have revealed.
Yet the late president’s wife is not satisfied with the investigation so far and feels none of the arrested people have the financial capability to mastermind and fund such a gigantic assassination operation.
