Police deployment to Haiti Halted after Prime Minister’s Resignation

By Antynet Ford

The planned deployment of Kenya police officers to Haiti is now on hold following the announcement of the resignation of Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry.

This was revealed to the international media house BBC by Kenya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing’oei.

The PS said without a political administration in Haiti there was no anchor on which the deployment could rest.

Sing’oei added that Kenya will wait for the installation of a new constitutional authority before further decisions are made.

Last year, Kenya pledged to deploy around 1,000 police officers to Haiti as part of an international force in a bid to combat gang violence.

The deployment had been held up in the courts but earlier this month it seemed as if all the legal hurdles had been cleared.
