Garry Conille was on May 29, appointed as the new Prime Minister of Haiti by the country's nine-member transitional council.

President Ruto congratulated Conille on his new role, expressing confidence that the country will soon be on a recovery path.

"On behalf of the Republic and People of Kenya, I extend congratulations to Hon Garry Conille, on his appointment as the Prime Minister of Haiti.

"This significant step is not lost on the world and signifies the desire of our brothers and sisters in Haiti to forge forward. Kenya expresses its strong solidarity with Haiti, and we look forward to working with you and your government to restore Haiti to a path of sustainable development," Ruto stated.

Conille's appointment comes at a critical juncture for the nation, which has been grappling with political instability and economic challenges.

His ascension to the role brings a mix of hope and skepticism, as the nation looks to navigate through its myriad of crises.

Garry Conille is not a newcomer to the political and humanitarian landscape. Born on February 26, 1968, in Port-au-Prince, he has a distinguished background in medicine and international development.
