Aristide ‘ready’ to return to Haiti, he says

Haiti’s former president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, said he is “ready” to return to the country from South Africa “today, tomorrow, at any time.” He did not offer any definite plans to go back to the ravaged country, CNN informs. Aristide has been living in South Africa since fleeing Haiti during a violent uprising in 2004. “Since my forced arrival in the Mother Continent six and a half years ago, the people of Haiti have never stopped calling for my return to Haiti,” he said in a statement provided by South Africa’s foreign ministry Thursday.
