Francois & Jean Claude Duvalier
How Does Francois Duvalier's ruling in Haiti Impact How His Son, Jean Claude, Was Seen?
Father-Son Legacy in Haiti
Tomorrow I am going to change the constitution and leave my job in the hands of my son, Jean Claude, for when the time comes and I have passed. I hope he will appreciate what I do for him and what I had to do to make this possible. With my popularity as president right now I want the legacy to continue after I am gone and I want my son to continue as president of Haiti to keep the Duvalier name. My son should be just as powerful as I am and he needs to be strong in order to keep Haiti under his control. I pray that he will not mess everything up and be the president until he dies. I have raised him to be strong and always do what you can to succeed. I hope he takes my words and uses them to create a stronger Haiti after I am gone.
