I wonder who wants Wyclef dead, and why!
Re: Wyclef Jean Shot In Hand In Haiti by Homonide: 2:44pm On Mar 20, 2011
The bullet just grazed his hands, i bet they didn't want him dead after all, probably just to scare him and make him 'toe the line', u know.

For your Information politics in Haiti is worst tha Nigeria, they are very crude, this is just the beginning, Wyclef has been warned before now, he should not contest if he like his life, he is not contesting but supporting a fellow musician. And those pple(OLD Politicians) know that Wyclef has the crowd. My advice for wyclef he should leave Haiti because they will kill him
