A country and a religion felt the painful death of Max Beauvoir in September of this year. Beauvoir was a Vodou priest who had been elevated to level of Ati, the supreme leader of the religion. Elected by a unanimous vote on Thursday, the new Ati will be Alcenat Zamor. The induction ceremony for Zamor will take place on March 7, 2016 in Place des Gonaives. His term will run for seven years and metropolehaiti.com reports that he has promised to carry on the work of Beauvoir and also called for unity among his people. Alcenat Zamor is 60 years of age and hails from the town of Gros Morne. He has been a practicing Vodou priest for 42 years. Some are calling Zamor a visionary, and some are saying no one will be able to replace Max Beauvoir. Time, I suppose, will tell, but for now, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
If you would like to see the man for yourself, here is a clip of Zamor speaking in 2009.
