    Why is this happening ? You maybe asking… When something like this happens you may think damn this doesn’t make any sense that it is happening, but you must also realize that whomever was targeting Wyclef
    may have been misinformed, just like a huge variety of the people there don’t have the resources to understand what’s happening in their country
    … The spot is a third world country that should’ve been richer than any
    other Caribbean country, just on sheer history alone. Clef is a prominent figure, but the country men there feel he’s not needed there to do anything dealing with politics … They feel he’s just some outsider that want’s recognition in a country that he left so long ago. The one is who did this is just perpetuating the ignorance!

    if i was him i would have gotten out as soon as possible. Elections are so dangerous

  4. I’m still not over the fact that he really wanted to candidate for the present election some month ago. That was unbelievable arrogant and just wrong. First world Wyclef Jean is skilled enough to be the present of Haiti? Because of which qualification exaclty? He is rich? He is famous? Yeah, right! That’s what a president in Haiti needs…Haiti is not Northamerica. MAYBE HAITI DOESN’T WANT YOUR HELP, WYCLEF!!! Just a quest…
