South African government helping Aristide return to Haiti

by Global News Staff

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — The South African government said on Thursday that it is helping ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide prepare to return to Haiti after nearly seven years in exile.

BBC Caribbean reported that Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane did not specify when Aristide might leave South Africa, nor did she say what has held up his return since the Haitian government granted his request for a new passport earlier this month.

The South African minister said they were consulting with all interested parties to facilitate Aristide’s return back home at the appropriate time.

US and CARICOM officials differ over the implications of Aristide’s return to Haiti. Unlike CARICOM, the US feels he could further destabilise the country.
