Aveledo is also a Birther
In a previous post I commented that no high
ranking opposition figure had yet echoed the theory that Maduro was not born in
Today however, MUD
secretary Ramón Guillermo Aveledo declared in a Televen interview that “in the
country there are many Venezuelans of foreign origin, in fact many are of
Colombian origin.” He added that he was puzzled by the fact “that Maduro has
never been willing to clearly say the truth and has been hiding the truth,
which is something very consistent with his conduct of always saying lies. I
think this is a relevant fact, that there is no motive to be ashamed of… no motive for hiding
your foreign origin.”
