Wyclef Urges Haitians To Stop The Crime
Rapper WYCLEF JEAN has taken to the airwaves in his native Haiti to encourage his fellow countrymen to stop committing "evil" crimes. The former Fugees star - who was appointed as an ambassador for Haiti last year (07) - has recorded a radio message in Creole, calling for an end to the increasing number of rape and kidnapping cases. In the advertisement, he says, "If you love Wyclef that means you love Haiti. So you should not be raping women, kidnapping people and children. There can be no excuse for doing so. "I reject these evil practices." Kidnapping is a major problem in the Caribbean country - 36 people have been abducted from the capital Port-au-Prince in March alone (08). The message will be played by local radio stations across the country.
