Jul 13, 2020
“We do not even have land worthy of the name in Haiti. State money which was to build sports centers across the country has been misappropriated. Nèg yo kraze lajan an… “, the Minister of Youth and Sports Max Attys revealed on Friday following a tour he carried out in several departments.
” What we found as sports infrastructure is insignificant. Since I am a responsible person, I take my responsibility to say it. And I think public action is going to be set in motion. It is unacceptable that the state has spent hundreds of millions and in the end we do not even have a sports field! “Denounced the Minister of Youth and Sports at a press conference.
Max Attys stressed that it was SECOSA, a Haitian firm, Rofi and Adom, Dominican firms, which were contracted for the construction sports centers across the country.
According to the Minister, in the Southeast there were two sports fields built by Dominican firms. “Unfortunately, these are firms that had no expertise for this kind of work. These two lands are practically abandoned. It’s the same with Jeremiah in Grand’Anse. I was surprised to see a sports center built in the 20th century, with latrines, “criticized the minister.
In the department of Nippes, Max Attys reported that there is not even a single field of sport. He said that a sports infrastructure funded in this town by FIFA to the tune of 50,000 dollars is not even worth two dollars after evaluation. “The money has been wasted,” he said.
In the city of Les Cayes, it is the same thing, “a scandal,” revealed the minister. “A center that was inaugurated by the then Minister of Sports, Mrs. [Régine] Lamure, as well as by the son of President Martelly, Olivier Martelly who was very involved in the construction of these centers. I repeat to say again that it was a mistake, “fumed the Minister of Sports.
In Mirebalais, on the Haut Plateau, in Milot, in the Northeast, he said, it is the same thing. “Se lajan jete nan bwa”, denounced the minister. “In the end, all the sports fields built on behalf of the Haitian state by the firms SECOSA, Rofi and Adom, pa gen youn ki bon,” he said. “The Dominican firms Rofi and Adom have no expertise of this kind,” pointed out the minister on numerous occasions.
“In Port-de-Paix, the money was released and the construction of many of these centers have not even started yet, “denounced the Minister of Sports. “At the Dadadou Center, it's the same thing. A lot of money has been released, but unfortunately the construction is incomplete, “he added.
On the other hand, Max Attys emphasized in strong ink that” the Ministry of Youth and Sports has not never been involved in the construction of these centers. The ministry has been dismissed, “he said, stressing that justice should be closely involved in the construction of these sports centers.
