Wyclef Jean to Run for Haiti President [Video]


Upon Wyclef Jean running for President in Haiti, he recently came under fire for doing so by actor Sean Penn and former Fugees member, Pras. Check out what each of them had to say about his run for Presidency:

After Wyclef Jean announced his intentions to run for the Haitian presidency, actor Sean Penn said he questioned Jean’s motives:

“What the Haitian people need now is a leader who is genuinely willing to sacrifice,” Penn said. “I haven’t seen or heard anything of him in these last six months that I’ve been in Haiti. I think he’s an important voice. I hope he doesn’t sacrifice that voice by taking the eye off the very devastating realities on the ground.”

Below is Wyclef’s comments, courtesy of The Washington Post:

“I just want Sean Penn to fully understand I am a Haitian, born in Haiti and I’ve been coming to my country ever since (I was) a child. He might just want to pick up the phone and meet, so he fully understands the man.”
