Raoul Peck

Aristide is no Mandela

''The sad truth for the millions of Haitians who had placed their destiny in the hands of Father Aristide in 1990 and again in 1994 is that he left a legacy of lies, intolerance, corruption, nepotism and conspiracy to eliminate his rivals and detractors.'' A noted former Haitian minister and international filmmaker says South Africa's guest of honour, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, was neither priestly nor presidential and has left a legacy of terror as he enjoys his Pretoria exile.
