Jovenel Moïse: President's widow speaks for first time
The injured widow of Haiti’s president has described the moment assassins “riddled” her husband with bullets after bursting into their home in the middle of the night.
Martine Moïse said the attack happened so quickly, her husband Jovenel was unable to “say a single word”.
President Moïse was killed on 7 July, allegedly by 28 foreign mercenaries.
Mrs Moïse was also injured in the attack, and was flown to Miami for treatment.
On Saturday, she posted a voice message to her Twitter page vowing to continue his work. A number of people have confirmed it is the president’s wife.
“In the blink of an eye, the mercenaries entered my house and riddled my husband with bullets,” Mrs Moïse says in the recording, describing the moment the attackers killed her husband.
