There is no need to be a riot if the government decide to remove these people from the beachfront and locate them elsewhere.

All the government has has to do if it is willing to beautify Port-au-Prince, is to allocate some money and build some attractive modest homes for these people, or a few high rise apartments which in my view will be more practicable.

However, to receive repayment for these houses, certain creative measures is to be put in place.

For example, these houses may be ented at a modest price equivalent to the rate rooms are paid for in the Cite Soleil and La Saline.

This project should be on a long term basis and in the end, the people could become owners of these homes.

I am sure something can be done about this.
