Radio Kiskeya rumor of closure

On Tuesday morning, December 1, 2015, around 1:00 AM, some unknown gunmen opened fire at Radio Television Kiskeya in Port-au-Prince. This was the first armed attack to the most popular radio station in Haiti which is dedicated to the news of Caribbean pop. Few bullets hit the building's front, gate, barrier and windows. Fortunately, no casualty was reported.


The gun attack came during a time when the country is passing through a tensed electoral crisis. The police have opened an investigation to find the cause and culprits of the attack. As per Senator Simon Desras, there are possibilities that the plan of the attack was hatched at the Prime Minister's office to silence certain media. The statement of Marvel Dandin, the Director General of Radio Kiskeya was also framed in the same tune. Without naming, he has linked the attack with electoral crisis.
