Where is Ariel Henry, Prime Minister of Haiti?

by admin

Prime Minister Ariel Henry of Haiti has left Kenya after completing an official visit last week, according to a spokesperson for the Presidency of Kenya. The Caribbean leader was in Nairobi to attend various events, including the signing of a bilateral agreement and the United Nations Environment Assembly.

Speculations have been circulating about Henry’s whereabouts since he left Kenya, with some suggesting that he has already departed from the country. His return to Haiti remains unknown, as there is a total silence surrounding the matter.

In Henry’s absence, Patrick Michel Boivert is acting as the interim Prime Minister of Haiti. Over the weekend, Boivert imposed a state of emergency and a curfew in the department of Oeste following attacks on two prisons by armed gangs.

The Haitian government cited the “degradation of security” as the reason for the emergency measures, which led to the escape of some 3,600 prisoners. The attacks on the prisons were deemed a threat to national security.

During his time in Guyana, Henry reportedly agreed to hold elections before August 31, 2025, in an attempt to address the ongoing crisis in Haiti. However, powerful armed gangs in Port-au-Prince have continued their activities, demanding Henry’s resignation.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda indicated that Henry was open to power-sharing with the opposition to find a resolution to the crisis. Additionally, Kenya and Haiti signed an agreement allowing the deployment of 1,000 Kenyan police officers to the Caribbean nation as part of a multinational security support mission.
