"They had him killed because of his projects for roads, water, electricity, referendum, and to avoid any kind of transition in the country," said Martine in her speech.
Martine also confirmed their children were also alive and denounced the brutal way in which her husband was killed.
"A person has to be more than a criminal to assassinate a president like Jovenel Moise, giving him no chance to say a single word," she added.
The brief statement that lasted about two minutes was posted this morning on Martine Moise's official Twitter account and has been replicated by several Hati government officials.
Likewise, she mentioned the most important thing was not to size the killers but the real murderers, the mind masters of the plot.
"You all know very well against whom the president was fighting (...) There are a group of mercenaries in jail, while another group wants to kill Moise's dreams and projects for the country," stated Martine Moise.
At the end of her statement, Moise's widow announced she would speak out soon again.
