“Haiti wouldn’t be free …” – Haiti Gang Leader Speaks About Kenyan Police Officers’ Deployment

Haiti gang leader Jimmy “Barbecue” Chérizier, expressed confidence in beating the Kenyan police force, which is slated to begin its peacekeeping operation in the Caribbean nation soon.

On May 13, during an interview with the United States’ National Public Radio (NPR), the infamous mobster warned Kenyan authorities to expect severe resistance once the multinational expedition began.

According to Barbecue, the conflict is going to be long, and the foreign forces will finally tire of fighting the gangs and leave without establishing peace.

When asked how he planned to survive the expected high-voltage clashes with police, the gang leader said his life depended on God and his forefathers.

“If the Haitian revolutionary Jean-Jacques Dessalines worried about his life, Haiti wouldn’t be free today,” Barbecue commented.

The gang leader further blamed the US administration for orchestrating the Haitian fights, warning that even if he died in the upcoming battles, Haiti would not be free.

Barbecue said that the presidential transitional council would fail to restore peace in Haiti.

According to him, the foundation of the transitional council was not a popular decision, but rather a recommendation pushed by foreign powers.

“The transitional council is not the will of the Haitian people. This is what Washington wants and this is what they have imposed,” the gang leader claimed.

Barbecue went on to say that the gangs were battling the rich, who he believed played a significant role in Haiti’s current state.

The gang leader’s comments come only days after the US military began preparing a camp to house the Kenyan police force ahead of its deployment.

According to sources familiar with the mission, the deployment could occur before the end of May, coinciding with President William Ruto’s State visit to the United States.

Aside from Kenya, six other countries have agreed to support the mission by deploying their military to help reduce violence in Haiti.

The mission includes Jamaica, Chile, Grenada, Paraguay, Burundi, Chad, Nigeria, and Mauritius.

The groups are suspected of planning murders and sexual assaults. According to a United Nations estimate, there were 4,451 killings last year and 1,554 this year as of March.
