That’s chavezcandanga’s last tweet, from November 1st. Since then, the comandante presidente’s twitter account has been… silent. This is not an isolated event.
His public apperances have been declining during the second half of 2012, specially after his re-election on October 7th. Last July, he showed up in 2.850 minutes of public events. This month he has showed up only 495 minutes (eight hours, all inside Miraflores Palace).
Now, he’s going once again to Cuba. This time for a “special treatment”.
For the record: In the almost eighteen months since he recognized his cancer. Not once has there been any kind of independent, detailed medical report about his condition.
That hasn’t stopped him during this period from falsely proclaiming himself cured.
