“Sweet Micky” banned from participation in Jacmel carnival parade


After Gonaïves, Jacmel City Council decided in turn, in a note dated January 29, not to allow the participation of the group “Sweet Micky” at the carnival carnival of Jacmel 2018 which will be held next weekend around the theme “K-naval chanjman : jakmèl tout moun ladan l”.

In this note bearing the signature of Mayor Marky Kessa and the two deputy mayors Benissoit Jean Pierre and Lourdie Cesar, it is stated that this decision was taken after consultation with the sectors of civil society, including university, religious, women’s organizations, teachers, academics, human rights and the Association of Southeast Mayors (AMASE).

The note explains that the Carnival must not be “[…] a moment of debauchery, violence, revenge, incitement to debauchery, even less offense to morality […]”

However, the note mentions that the former President Michel Martelly and his family are welcome as festival-goers at the Carnival of Jacmel.
