Chavez dies: When the big tree falls, the goat eats its leaves

The champion of the poor is dead! May his soul rest in peace! Hugo Chavez left the world at 58 with an impressive fingerprint. Seen as a dictator, unjustly criticized for almost anything that he did by Western media, for many in his country and around the world he was an hero!

I love the man for standing against poverty and raising the standard of living in his country. I respect the man for dying of illness, not a military coup.

Hugo Chavez's deathHe is taking to his grave his ideology. He believed in socialism. What will happen in Venezuela after Chavez? Will his lieutenant, Vice President Nicolas Maduro, be able to hold power for long? For sure the race for Venezuelan oil is on. For imperialist minds, Chavez’s death is an opportunity. As the Bamileke of Cameroon say, “When the big tree falls, the goat eats its leaves.” Reposar en paz campeon!
