The day after Bolivar’s new 3D face was revealed to the public, Hugo Chavez was supposed to officially open the new mausoleum behind the National Pantheon, as a permanent place of rest for the Libertador’s remains.
The Communication Minister Andres Izarra released then this photo of VP Elias Jaua and State Minister Farruco Sesto, making a last minute inspection on site.
The planned opening didn’t take place. In fact, it has been postponed three times.
(For the record, we didn’t set out to make this week a Bolivar-version of “Shark Week”. The guy is just in the news a lot recently.)Caracas Chronicles is 100% reader-supported. Support independent Venezuelan journalism by making a donation.
