Hugo Chavez Health News: Venezuelan President Loses His Voice


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's condition has worsened according to new reports. The strongman, who's currently in Cuba recovering from a fourth cancer operation in little less than a year, has reportedly lost his voice as he has been unable to recover from the disease,

From PolicyMic's Robinson O'Brien-Bours:

"It has been more than 60 days since Chavez last appeared in public. Since then, he has been confined to a Cuban hospital and under the care of the Castro brothers. Unable to attend his own inauguration, Chavez left Vice President Nicolas Maduro in charge of the government for the time being. There have been concerns that Chavez's inauguration was illegal, and his death may plunge the nation into further chaos — with the hope of democratic rights being restored to a people long-oppressed by his socialist revolution."
