Rotchild Francois Jr Resigns as Minister of Communication

After more than 8 months as Minister of Communication, Rotchild Francois Jr says enough is enough. Although it appears that the decision was hard to make, the Minister of Communication has decided to leave his position after ongoing insults, unwelcome jokes that some would qualify as tasteless made by President Michel Martelly on his personality.


In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Evans Paul on September 15, Rotchild Francois Jr explained that the current working environment prevents him from doing his job with professionalism, something he had spend his entire career building.

As you may recollect, during the last CARIFESTA event in the Champ de Mars recently President Michel Martelly publicly ridiculed the function of Minister of Communication presently held by Rotchild Francois Jr. The president stated that Rotchild lies every day.

The last incident took place few weeks later when the President told the public that Rotchild came to see him, crying, asking that the public clarifies his statement and told the public that he was only joking.

Warren Buffett said: "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently". Also, according to George Washington: "Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company"
