Bolivia: deplorable

Manfredo Kempff, El Deber:

La Bolivia deplorable

Ver a la expresidente Jeanine Áñez prisionera y enferma y al expresidente Evo Morales exultante, viajero, mandón, petulante y agresivo es algo inconcebible. Ella, Jeanine Áñez, no hizo sino obedecer lo que dictaba la Constitución cuando accedió al mando en noviembre de 2019, sin buscar nada; él, Evo Morales, se burló del 21-F, de la Carta Magna, cometió un fraude escandaloso, huyó al exilio cobardemente y regresó como un mesías.

Esta es la Bolivia deplorable, la Bolivia injusta, donde la bellacada se impone sobre la sobriedad, donde la ignorancia y la inmoralidad triunfan porque son más grandes que la virtud. Jeanine está acosada por una justicia que responde ciegamente al MAS (como están pagando otros muchos ciudadanos probos) mientras que Morales, el verdadero culpable de las peores aberraciones, tiene todavía alardes de líder, aspira a volver al poder, y provoca un enorme malestar ciudadano poniendo en riesgo la propia democracia.

Ya es hora que el pueblo boliviano se manifieste con valentía y que proteste porque una mujer inocente está en la cárcel y un peligroso sujeto, de ignorancia supina, ande suelto provocando bochorno. Hay que salir a las calles a protestar contra la prisión de Jeanine Áñez, única forma de que los carceleros dejen de lado sus ansias de venganza.

The deplorable Bolivia

Seeing former President Jeanine Áñez imprisoned and ill and former President Evo Morales exultant, traveler, bossy, petulant and aggressive is inconceivable. She, Jeanine Áñez, did nothing but obey what the Constitution dictated when she acceded to command in November 2019, without looking for anything; he, Evo Morales, made fun of 21-F, the Magna Carta, committed a scandalous fraud, fled into exile cowardly and returned as a messiah.

This is the deplorable Bolivia, the unjust Bolivia, where mischief prevails over sobriety, where ignorance and immorality triumph because they are greater than virtue. Jeanine is harassed by a justice that responds blindly to the MAS (as many other upright citizens are paying) while Morales, the true culprit of the worst aberrations, still boasts of a leader, aspires to return to power, and causes enormous citizen unrest putting democracy itself at risk.

It is time for the Bolivian people to demonstrate with courage and to protest because an innocent woman is in jail and a dangerous subject, of supine ignorance, is on the loose causing embarrassment. We must take to the streets to protest against the prison of Jeanine Áñez, the only way for the jailers to put aside their desire for revenge.
