Share President of the Dominica Haiti Friendship Association, Mr. Frantso Moise.President of Dominica Haiti Friendship Association Frantso Moise is calling on all Haitian nationals residing in Dominica to become a member of the Association and work together .“I am calling on all Haitians, the association is not for one person, and it’s not for two persons. Today I am the President, tomorrow it can be somebody else, a woman or a man because sometimes the women suppose to get the chance too; they can do what we doing too. That’s why I call all women and tell them come into the association, let us make one, let us just be together,” Moise said.Mr. Moise told Dominica Vibes News that the success of the association is dependent on the cooperation it receives from the membership and therefore admonishes them to come and play their part.“Don’t stay outside and give the association a bad name or say we not doing nothing. If you stay outside and criticize, it’s not good; you have to come in, come to put your hand. So when you there you can say something we did not see. If you stay outside and just criticize; we not doing that, we not doing this, your help in very important in the association.”Mr. Moise is also advising his fellow Haitian nationals to know the laws of the Commonwealth of Dominica so as not to create a headache for Government officials.“We don’t want the Government in Dominica or the Chief of Police, or the Chief of Immigration or police officer from Marigot to have no headache. When the Haitian have to come down here, the Haitian have to know the law, how he has to fix his papers to come here. The law says you have to have four hundred dollars deposit and another way you have to have three, four, five hundred going up, pocket money but you have to have somebody to give you the information or it will just be a waste for you.”Meantime Moise who has been living on the island for nine years says in time past, the relationship between the Government of Dominica and Haitian nationals was a very good one, and he is hopeful that this cordial relationship can be restored.“I tell my people the Government of Dominica; we cannot just say they bad because it was good before, because when I came I didn’t have those kind of problems there, it was good for me it was sweet. If now they have a little issue with us, we have to sit down to see how we can solve the problem. I can say is not the Prime Minister that is the problem, is not the Government, is not the Chief of Police, it is us. That’s why I tell them come to the meeting for us to talk about how they suppose to have a good comportement [behavior] in the country,” Mr. Moise said.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
