MIAMI – The First Lady of Haiti, Martine Moïse, is being heard from publicly for the first time since she was badly injured during the assassination of her husband, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse.
On Saturday, Moïse posted an audio message on her personal Twitter account.

In the message, she says, “I’m alive by God’s grace, but I lost my husband Jovenel.”
Moïse arrived in South Florida for medical treatment Wednesday afternoon, several hours after the early-morning attack took place outside the Port Au-Prince home she shares with her husband.
About the attack, she said, “One blink of an eye, mercenaries came to my house and riddled my husband with bullets.”
“After 25 years of marriage they took my husband away from me. I knew going into politics wasn’t going to be easy. We must continue the fight. Jovenel was for the people. They assassinated him because he wanted to change the country. We must stand up and continue the fight…he was fighting for us, and we must continue fighting for him.”

A moment of silence for Haiti was held Thursday at the Miami-Dade County Commission meeting, a day after the country’s president was assassinated in his own home.
James Solages, a Haitian-American from South Florida, is among the suspects in custody in Haiti for his role in the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, Haitian officials said.
There was a moment of silence Wednesday afternoon at Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church in the heart of Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood. It was in memory of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse. A squad of gunmen pretending to be U.S. agents assassinated him about 1 a.m. Wednesday at his home in Haiti.
