Haiti - FLASH : First reactions to Kenya's announcement to support the PNH
Saturday, July 29, 2023, Alfred Mutua, the Kenyan Minister of Foreign Affairs declared "[...] Kenya has accepted to positively consider leading a Multi-National Force to Haiti. Kenya's commitment is to deploy a contingent of 1,000 police officers to help train and assist Haitian police restore." Following this declaration, the first reactions, for the moment mostly favorable, quickly issued :

FOR - Jean Victor Généus, Minister of Foreign Affairs:
"Jean Victor Généus received with great interest the declarations of his Kenyan counterpart, Dr. Alfred Mutua, confirming the desire of this brotherly country to provide effective support to the Haitian security forces in their fight for the restoration of a secure environment in Haiti, and even to consider the possibility of assuming the leadership of a multinational force as soon as the United Nations Security Council has given its approval.

Haiti fully appreciates this manifestation of African solidarity, and it is with pleasure that it will welcome in the coming weeks, the assessment mission that Kenya proposes to send."

FOR - Bocchit Edmond :
"The harmful consequences of this insecurity in Haiti are more than palpable. As a member of the United Nations and a founding member of the United Nations, our international partners have a moral duty to assist us and help us emerge from this infernal violence that our poor sisters and brothers suffer daily. Let's rather salute the will of our African brothers who want to make themselves available and support the PNH.

Each State certainly has its internal problems but it can always help another in difficulty. No state is immune to social problems and no police force in the world is perfect.

The mission and the rules of engagement of this international force must be clear and accepted by Haiti, these are the key elements of this assistance. Let us preferably focus on the essential: Haiti really needs help and it does not matter the continent of origin of this help (African, American, Asian or European).

Finally, let's work to ensure that this aid is effective and efficient and that it contributes to the restoration of the dignity of the Haitian people. The time is no longer for demagoguery but rather for the primacy of reason and pragmatism."

FOR - Me André Michel Spokesperson for the "Democratic and Popular Sector"
Me André Michel leader of the radical opposition and Spokesman of the "Democratic and Popular Sector" (SDP) writes on his twitter account

"The SDP welcomes the announcement of KENYA's willingness to take the leadership of the multinational force and send 1,000 police officers to Haiti The SDP invites other United Nations member countries to follow suit to help Haiti get through this difficult stage.

The SDP reiterates its unwavering support for the Government's decision to request an international force to accompany the PNH in the fight against insecurity and Kidnapping. Only an international force can help us free the country from the hell of armed gangs.

Without this international force, the Constitutional revision and the organization of the elections will be completely mortgaged. The SDP invites the population to unite behind the Government's initiative to request this international support force for the PNH."

AGAINST - Claude Joseph, former Minister of Foreign Affairs
Claude Joseph, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, a few hours after the declaration of Alfred Mutua, the Kenyan Minister of Foreign Affairs "Kenya has agreed to consider positively taking the lead of a multinational force in Haiti. Kenya agrees to deploy a contingent of 1,000 police » https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-40134-haiti-flash-kenya-agrees-to-deploy-1-000-police-officers-in-haiti.html said he was opposed to the intervention of the Kenyan police in Haiti stressing "Kenya, which has said it is ready to lead an international force in Haiti, is mired in its own socio-political crisis internal [...] Anti-government demonstrations protesting against the high cost of living are violently repressed by the police" wondering "Can a police force that is not professional in its country be elsewhere ?"
