Wyclef Jean turned to song today to accuse outgoing President Rene Preval of engineering his rejection as a candidate for Haiti’s November election.
Local radio stations in Haiti were broadcasting a song by Jean in Creole in which he called for the jailing of electoral officials who last week disqualified him and for the first time directly blamed Preval for being banned from the November 28 vote.
Wyclef raps in Creole:
I know all the cards are in your hands … I voted for you to be president in 2006, why today did you reject my candidacy?”
It’s not Wyclef that you have expelled, it is the youth you have denied … it’s the population you have denied, its the peasants you have denied,”
He also posted the song on his Twitter page
“Prizon Pou K.E.P.a” (Jail for the Provisional Electoral Council)
