Five years ago, a devastating earthquake brought Haiti to its knees. The disaster sparked a global effort to help the country rebuild, but half a decade later, its democracy is still on shaky ground. Kojo explores how the political aftershocks of the quake are still rippling through Haiti — and what’s at stake in its long-delayed elections.
