The candidacy of Laurent Lamothe, Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant, Kesler Dalmacy and Edwin Zenny have one thing in common. Their candidacy to run in the next election have been contested for various reasons. For former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe the issue of discharge has returned since his registration to participate. For Kesler Dalmacy, his residency requirement is questionable. The allegations on Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant and Edwin Zenny are even more serious; while some people are questioning the source or sources of the money for Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant was heavily involved in the destruction of houses in the downtown area Port-au-Prince. Edwin Zenny for his part is being challenged for alleged involvement in auto theft and drug trafficking
Haiti is an impoverished nation which is struggling to recover from a number of hurdles like devastating earthquake, a major cholera epidemic and chaotic political instability these might seem great challenges, but no less than 70 presidential candidates believe they are the best for the job. However, out of the total 70 candidates, the candidacies of 5 contestants have been doubtful as they are questionable. The candidacies of Laurent Lamothe, Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant, Kesler Dalmacy and Edwin Zenny have been challenged for various reasons.

(2) Jovenel Moïse, could not disclose the sources of his candidacy fund, (3) Jean-Henry Céant, a notary, for his involvement in the destruction of houses in the downtown area Port-au-Prince; (4) Kesler Dalmacy, his eligibility based on residential status is questionable; and (5) Edwin Zenny, is contesting against charges of drug trafficking and vehicle theft.
Sherlson Sanon, in a written and signed testimony, implicating former Senator Joseph Lambert and Senator Edwin Zenny in fraud, drug trafficking and kidnapping.
The declaration of Sherlson Sanon was made in front of Notary Public Jean Beaubrun L. Rony who notarized the document on April 23, 2013
At this point, it is important to understand that this is only an allegation made by an individual about two impotant personalities in the Haitian society and we have only heard one side of the story.
Former Senator Joseph Lambert is one of the two men who were fingered by Sherlson Sanon in a testimony he gave in the presence of representatives from the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights. Lambert, along with his co-accused, Senator Edwin Zenny, have been incriminated in cases of drug trafficking, electoral fraud and murder as two of the heads of the gang of young criminals known as Kakos. The RNDDH have striven to make the public aware of the case as a means of giving protection to the plaintiff.
This is a picture of the newly elected senator Edwin Zenny. What makes the case of the haitian Senator even more interesting is that he came in under the banner of UNITE but supported his friend Michel Martelly
At one point during the caampaign, Edwin Zenny was physically attacked for his position
