Ousted Haitian leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide arrived in Haiti this morning, after leaving South Africa yesterday.
Accompanied by his wife Mildred and his two daughters Michaela, 12 and Christine, 14, Aristide boarded an aircraft bound for his homeland. He held a press conference in South Africa, where he was living in exile since he was forcibly removed from office in 2004.
At the press conference, Aristide declared “the great day has arrived”.
Aristide’s return to Haiti, comes as the impoverished French speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country is preparing for the second and final round of presidential elections on Sunday.
