Legacy of 1804 | Fabiola Abelard & Florence Jean-Joseph | Swearing-In as Diaspora GwètòDe #LOF1804















Join me this Friday at 9PM as I welcome Fabiola Abelard and Florence Jean-Joseph, two spiritual leaders who will be sworn-in  as GwètòDe for the Haitian Diaspora by the Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (KNVA) on Saturday, February 25th in Harlem, NYC.  Find out more about and register for this swearing-in a.k.a. Wosman ceremony here.  Find out more about Wosman in general here.

We will answer the following questions: What is a GwètòDe? How and why is a GwètòDe appointed? What is KNVA? What are the GwètòDe's responsibilities towards the community? Please call-in with questions of your own or tweet them to me @kiskeacity.

More about the swearing-in/wosman this Saturday:


To strengthen its international presence, KNVA created the administrative positions of “GwètòDe”, “Gwètò.”

Together with the "Ati National', the Grand Council of KNVA will convene in New York for an official two-fold ceremony entitled “Wosman” (elevation and presentation). One representative each from New York, Canada, Massachusetts and French Guyana will be formally installed and introduced to the Community.

Legacy of 1804 | Digicel in Haiti: Friend or Monopolistic Foe? | Debate with Marten Boute @mboute #LOF1804









This Friday at 9PM, join me as I welcome Digicel Chairman Maarten Boute and last week's guest Giles Colbert Charleston of  Association of Haitian Professionals (AHP) to debate Digicel's impact in Haiti today.


We'll discuss Digicel and the Haitian telecom market, specifically issues of competition, Digicel's (failed) attempt to block VoIPs, quality of service and various grievances about Digicel increasingly expressed by Haitians. Also, did Digicel meddle with the last presidential elections?

Giles Colbert Charleston agreed to come back to the show to debate what he meant when he said last week that Digicel is acting increasingly as a monopolistic actor in Haiti. This show was spurred by Digicel chairman Maarten Boute reaching out to me to take exception to this statement and asking for a chance to respond.


Join us for this promising debate!


Make sure to send us questions or join us live with them.
