Two Haitian mayors cancel Carnival celebrations amid violent protests

Two mayors in Haiti have announced the cancellation of the annual Carnival celebrations citing the safety of revellers and the prevailing socio-political situation in the country.
 
Ralph Youri Chevry, Mayor of Port-au-Prince, and Rony Colin, his counterpart in Croix-des-Bouquets, said they were unable to guarantee the safety of persons attending the Carnival because of the situation where opposition parties have been staging street demonstrations calling for the removal of President Jovenel Moise from office.
 
Mr. Chevry said the Port-au-Prince Municipal Administration has therefore decided to cancel the pre-carnival and carnival festivities to take place on February 24 and March 3 and 5.
