PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Mother of newly ratified prime minister, Dr. Garry Conille, refuses to let her son go play outside until he turns the nation's crippled economy around, friends reported.
"Today, we asked Garry to come out and have some fun with us," said Carlo Forestal speaking of his best friend since childhood. "And he was like, 'I can't. My mom says I have to solve the current economic crisis.'"
According to long-time friends, Mrs. Conille has become fas less lenient in recent days about how the newly appointed prime minister spends his time, reducing his television viewing and the amount of time he spends with friends.
"Ever since he became prime minister, Mrs. Conille has drastically cut back Garry's activities so he can concentrate more on his new job," said Forestal. "What a strict lady."
