It smells revenge …
Have you ever been in a situation in which you didn’t think of what you were saying? You were just carried by your ego and pride and suddenly things you should have not said accidentally slipped out of your mouth? But then you didn’t keep your words.
I guess the HAT President did (like all politicians). He didn’t measure the consequences of “freeing all political prisoners” during the Ravalomanana’s era and how Malagasy people would perceive it or even what that may lead to. Now he may realize how controversial his decision is (because there were people condemned for serious crimes) thus his gov seemed to be bothered. They don’t know how to do it in a proper way. Yesterday, we knew that the prisoners will be released in two times. Something they hated and they will never accept. They directly blamed the HAT on TV.
Anyway, revenge is in the air … they can’t wait to be out to kick some butts. I can already guess the fear and worry people involved in their arrest feel now (and all official during the former President as well). Wondering what they could do to escape. How to protect their family? Whom to turn to?
