Hugo Chavez has been absent from Venezuela for 18 days now, so I’m opening a new category of tags, The Invisible Hugo.
The first post of this series:
The speakerphone call to his political party (link in Spanish).
Yes indeed, Hugo called the leadership of his party, the Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela PSUV (United Socialist Party of Venezuela) “to give us instructions”, according to Diosdado Cabello, who promptly tweeted about it.
As you can see from the photo, everybody was simply thrilled to hear from him.
Hugo Chavez’s brother Adan, who has become more visible as time wears on, has already said that Hugo’s expected back on July 5, to head the 200th anniversary of Venezuela’s independence from Spain. The chief of Caracas’s Capital District says that over 119 million bolivares have been spent on infrastructure preparations for the bicentennial.
He better show up then.
The army generals also want him back soon.
