Fidel Castro-trained Presidente Maduro is, at least, a good sport
A woman who accurately lobbed a mango at Venezuelan president Nicolas
Maduro's head has been promised a house in a story which has quickly
gone viral in the country.
The 52-year-old head of state and former bus driver was driving the
vehicle through the central state of Aragua to meet with supporters at a
Wednesday (22 April) when 54-year-old Marleny Olivo quite literally saw
a window of opportunity to send a message to Maduro and tossed a mango
at his head.
Maduro was struck just above the left ear and calmly picked it up
before displaying it to the crowd. A message was scrawled on the piece
of fruit. It read: "If you can, call me", along with her name and phone
Clearly, it didn't knock any sense of economic reality into him, as he seems to think that houses grow on mango trees;
"We're going to invite her to my [TV and radio] show, 'In Touch with
Maduro.' She had a housing problem, right? And, Marleny, I have approved
it already, as part of the Great Housing Mission of Venezuela, you will
get an apartment and it will be given to you in the next few hours.
Tomorrow, no later than the day after tomorrow, we will give it to you."
Nick, did you bother to think about the incentive you've created?
