KREYOL: Haiti - Peyizan yo fè konnen yo bouke resevwa kandida politsyen ki vini ba yo manti pou yo ka genyen election... Lè election fini, ou pa janm wè yo, yo pa kenbe promès yo, yo pa menm retounen vinn di nou mèsi...

"Candidates come, candidates go," he says, "they promise they will do everything to change our lives. It is I who turns around to convince the people to vote for that candidate."

"Once the candidate is elected, we never see him again, he doesn't even return to say thank you."
